The Owens Art Gallery in Sackville NB on the Mount Allison campus is well worth the time and provides a pleasant look at excellent art. The Alex Colville offerings alone are lovely, easier to understand and fun for even the novice art lover.

Regular exhibits of important work (recently Mary Pratt) are supplemented by themed family activities once a month. Every fall, the gallery does a nineteenth century Salon Hanging, painting one hall red and hanging paintings in a stunning tightly blocked arrangement well above eye level. Free.

They have an interesting collection here that frequently is changed, so worth dropping by to see what is on display. Collections are broken into rooms and well curated.
