The Marianne van Silfhout Gallery is a state-of-the-art community art gallery located at the front atrium of the campus and is the focus of the visual arts for Brockville and the larger Eastern Ontario area.
Creation of the gallery was made possible by a major half-million dollar bequest from the estate of Marianne van Silfhout, a graduate of the Fine Art program at St. Lawrence College, as well as numerous donors to the St. Lawrence College Foundation. Behind this gift is Marianne’s belief that wilderness adventure and education and art are inextricably bound together in an experience of enduring value and benefit to humanity. The bequest will also fund bursaries for both part-time and full-time Fine Arts students at St. Lawrence College.
Tuesday - Friday, 10 am to 8 pm
Monday & Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm
The Marianne van Silfhout Gallery is located on St. Lawrence College's Brockville campus.

Our fourth annual show displays the work of emerging artists who have not completed formal training in the visual arts. Visitors can expect to see two and three dimensional art in a variety of mediums including photography, acrylic, oil, watercolour, graphite and mixed media designs. Artwork included in this exhibit was selected by a volunteer jury of local artists who examined the submissions based on formal elements of art including, but not limited to, line, composition, colour, subject matter and overall skill demonstrated.
Call to SLC Alumni:
Marianne van Silfhout Gallery 8th Annual Alumni Show: BLISS
Friday, July 10- Friday, August 21, 2015
Entries will be accepted at the Gallery from 1PM- 6PM FRIDAY, JUNE 26th AND 10AM-2PM SATURDAY, JUNE 27th.
Opening Reception & Awards: Tuesday, July 14, 7-9pm.
The theme of the 2015 Alumni Show, “Bliss”, encourages alumni to submit works that reflect how they interpret the word “bliss” in the world around them- be it through direct experience or the observation of “bliss” in another. What brings you bliss? What does bliss look like? Is it a photograph of a smiling child, or the abstract expression of your own emotional experience? Both two and three dimensional work will be considered.
This exhibition is open to ALL SLC alumni from any program, Kingston, Cornwall, and Brockville campuses.
