Oakville Galleries – Centennial Square
Oakville, Ontario L6J 2Z4 Canada (905) 844 - 4402 http://www.oakvillegalleries.com/
Oakville Galleries is comprised of two previously independent sites: Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens and Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square. The galleries formally amalgamated in 1978.
HISTORY OF CENTENNIAL SQUARE
As its Centennial project, the Town of Oakville developed and implemented an initiative to house a public library and art gallery in one complex at the northwest corner of Navy Street and Lakeshore Road. The project was realized in September 1967 with Centennial Gallery, as it was then known, initially operating as a joint initiative of the Centennial Gallery Board and the Oakville Public Library Board.
While still housed in the Oakville Public Library, Oakville Galleries at Centennial Square became an independent organization with its own Board of Directors in 1980.
