I can't describe the Owens Art Gallery, one visit won't let you take it all in so plan to visit a couple of times while you are in Sackville . Great collection.

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.
