The Collector's Eye - Selections from the Bruce Andrews Collection
Almost everyone collects something and our collections reflect who we are. For long-time Georgetown resident, Bruce Andrews, a passion for collecting has led him to amass over 1000 works ranging from Canadian historical and contemporary to local and international artists. Here are some selections from Bruce's outstanding collection.
Create to Learn
Attention teachers and parents! Our curriculum based art lessons provide easy step-by-step instructions to create inspiring works of art from readily available materials. Grade differentiated programming for grades 1 - 4 and 5 - 8 draws upon examples from the Bruce Andrews Collection, connecting students to art in their community.
