Located in Glenhyrst Gardens, a beautifully landscaped sixteen-acre park on the banks of the Grand River, Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant offers exciting views both indoors and out. This picturesque property was bequeathed to the City of Brantford by Mr. Edmund Cockshutt in 1957, with his wishes that it be a place for artistic and cultural pursuits. In 1986, the Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant was established as a public, nonprofit art gallery.
Throughout the year, the Gallery offers contemporary fine art exhibitions; guided tours, classes, lectures, events, an Art Rental Service, Giftshop and rental of the estate facilities. In addition, the Gallery has a Permanent Collection of over 700 artworks. We encourage everyone to become a member today and discover something for everyone at Glenhyrst Art Gallery of Brant.Visit the gallery in the gardens soon. We look forward to seeing you!
