Design at Riverside

Design at Riverside is one of only two publicly funded galleries dedicated to architecture and design in Canada. It is a part of the Cambridge Public Library system with art exhibition spaces at Queen's Square in Galt and in Preston. Together, the three galleries host approximately 23 exhibitions per year reflecting a range of local, regional, provincial, national and international developments in contemporary and historical visual art.

An extensive program of art education is offered at five Cambridge locations, including studio art courses for children, teenagers and adults. Our Printmaking Studio at the University of Waterloo School of Architecture provides opportunities for artists, students and members of the community to develop skills in this lively medium.

Lectures, concerts and bus trips are offered throughout the year. Cineseries is an ongoing program of alternative film, organized in conjunction with the Film Circuit of the Toronto International Film Festival. The Queen's Square location is home to a growing collection of contemporary Canadian fibre art as well as being the site of the Public Art Program, an annual outdoor installation of a contemporary work of art.

Cambridge Galleries are supported by its membership, the City of Cambridge, the Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council.
