What started out in 1976 as a space to display artwork by students at Malaspina College, has developed into an important public art museum serving Central Vancouver Island. 

Nanaimo Art Gallery (NAG) includes two locations: the campus Gallery is located at Vancouver Island University overlooking the City of Nanaimo, Strait of Georgia and the Coastal Mountains, and the Downtown Gallery is located on Commercial Street in the heart of the Arts District in Nanaimo's revitalised city centre.

The mandate of Nanaimo Art Gallery is to enhance the cultural environment of the Nanaimo/Central Island region through exhibitions, outreach and educational programming that encourages active public involvement with the visual arts. NAG offers art exhibitions of local, national and international significance and maintains a growing collection of historical and contemporary art.  We engage broad audiences through an ongoing series of education programs for children and adults, organize "Festival of Banners" which has become a beloved tradition, and partner with the city to offer an evolving program of outdoor art.
