Kennedy Gallery

Experience your community's public art gallery. Admission is free, all are welcome.

Located within the Capitol Centre, in North Bay, Ontario, the WKP Kennedy Gallery is a public art gallery which presents the finest in historical and contemporary Northern, Canadian and International visual artists.

We host exciting educational programming for people of all ages, providing opportunities to learn in a community environment. This is a Paint Night hosted by Heather Wallingford. It was a great time for everyone and a great fundraiser for the Gallery.

We are grateful for opportunities to engage with Indigenous artists from Nipissing First Nation and communities throughout the North. This mural, titled, ‘Giige’, which means healing in Nipissing Ojibway, was painted by Cole Forrest and Katie Samara Couchie, and is in the front of the gallery.

We embrace the work of our community’s Francophone artists, and always look forward to Le Carnaval, presented annually in partnership with Les Compagnons des Francs Loisirs. This is Luc Pelchat, artist from 2017’s Le Carnaval, with his installation ‘Division Bell’.

We host summer arts camps every year for children, and last year we even dyed t-shirts with locally-grown flowers and painted rocks at the Gathering Place Garden with campers!
