History

The only public Gallery in Richmond, the Richmond Art Gallery (RAG) is a municipal Gallery supported by the non-profit Richmond Art Gallery Association (RAGA), a charitable organization. In operation since 1980, the Gallery presents curated exhibitions by British Columbia, national and international artists, maintains a permanent collection, and presents innovative and diverse programming for children, youth, and adults. Since 1992, the Gallery has been located in the Richmond Cultural Centre, and has evolved into a well-regarded professional contemporary art gallery that was awarded a Richmond Arts Award for leadership in 2010. RAGA supports the gallery through membership, fundraising, and advocacy.

Our Vision

The Richmond Art Gallery’s vision is to be one of the most important public galleries in Canada, and to increasingly enlarge our audiences and their understanding and enjoyment of contemporary art.

Our Mandate

The Richmond Art Gallery is mandated to exhibit, preserve and promote visual arts and to provide exhibition related programming.

Our Mission

Richmond Art Gallery is dedicated to promoting dialogue among diverse communities on challenging ideas and issues of today as expressed through local, national and international contemporary art. Through its exhibitions, publications, educational programming, collections and significant partnerships, the Richmond Art Gallery provides opportunities for the enhancement of life in Richmond while serving the contemporary arts community in Canada.
