The University of Waterloo Art Gallery (UWAG) was established in 1964 and is located in East Campus Hall (ECH), adjacent to the Fine Arts Department. UWAG engages both the campus and community-at-large with an annual slate of exhibitions featuring recent work by significant emerging and mid-career artists from across Canada and abroad. The exhibitions program strikes a critical balance by remaining responsive to our vibrant regional arts scene while exploring aspects critical to the expanded field of contemporary art as they occur on a national and international level. In 2010, the gallery was renovated and revitalized by Director/Curator, Ivan Jurakic. Our exhibitions, opening receptions and events are free and open to the public. Regular gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday from noon to 5:00 pm or by appointment. Located in East Campus Hall at 263 Phillip Street off of University Avenue West, behind University Shops Plaza. Use South entrance to ECH across from Engineering 6. Limited meter parking is available behind ECH. Visitor Parking is available daily in Lot E6 and Lot E5 or Lot B after 3:45 pm.
