More about SSANC

Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre Inc. is a not-for-profit registered charity, founded in 1964 to create real opportunities for people to appreciate the connection between art and nature. Our 130-year-old building, located in the heart of St. Andrews, is recently renovated and offers world-class facilities of over 6,000 square feet: two galleries for exhibitions, studios for painting, drawing, printmaking, jewellery & metalsmith, pottery/ceramics and other art and nature programs.
The centre is open year-round and offers programs to support the local community, the region’s schools, visitors, and established and emerging artists from across Canada and the Eastern US seaboard. Outreach programs throughout the County also engage children who might otherwise not have an opportunity, to engage in art-related activities. The worldwide challenges of recent years have brought to light the opportunity for us to think about our services in a new way and, as a result, our programming has expanded in order to provide specific support to other vulnerable persons in our community, artists and art enthusiasts – using new technologies and methodologies.
