Plan Your Visit: Tourist Information for Visiting the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery & Lethbridge Community

How to find the uLethbridge Art Gallery from Uleth ArtGallery on Vimeo.

Hello and welcome to the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery! We are located on the west side of Lethbridge along the Oldman river, on the traditional territory of the Blackfoot Confederacy. Lethbridge is home to a vibrant art community and the University of Lethbridge Art Gallery houses one of the most significant art collections in Canada. We present exhibitions of new work by contemporary artists as well as works from the permanent collection. We are open weekdays 10-4, later on Thursdays, and one Saturday per month year-round. We are closed on holidays.

Recently we were bequeathed over 1000 works from the Estate of the late Dr. Margaret (Marmie) Perkins Hess. Our summer exhibition features highlights of this gift; many of these works have never been publicly shown before. Admission is free, and we offer free tours to individuals and groups. We look forward to seeing you.
