Marianne van Silfhout Gallery

Community Art Gallery

The Marianne van Silfhout Gallery is a state-of-the-art community art gallery located at the front atrium of the Brockville campus and is the focus of the visual arts for Brockville and the surrounding region.

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 Alumni & Development Office. Behind this gift is Marianne’s belief that wilderness adventure, education, and art are inextricably bound together in an experience of enduring value and benefit to humanity. The bequest also funds bursaries for both part-time and full-time Fine Arts students at St. Lawrence College.
