Students having a conversation outside the Owens Art Gallery

See the Campus Map for Visitor Parking.

The Owens Art Gallery is located on the campus of Mount Allison University in an historical building opened to the public in 1895. We welcome visitors seven days a week, year round. Admission to the Gallery and all its programs is free.

The Owens reception desk is staffed entirely by Mount Allison University students. Our student receptionists are knowledgeable about the gallery and its programs and are always happy to offer information on exhibitions and other Owens events.

It is upon the unceded, ancestral lands of the Mi'kmaq and Wolastoqiyik Nations that Mount Allison University is built. While this area is known as Sackville, NB, it is part of the greater territory of Mi'kma'ki. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship,” which the Mi'kmaq and Wolastoqiyik first signed with the British Crown in 1725.


Monday to Friday 10 am to 5 pm

Other Services

Large print copies of wall labels are available at the front desk for use in the galleries.

When possible, the Owens provides open captioning and transcripts for videos included in exhibitions. Transcripts are available at the front desk.

Although the Owens is only partially accessible, our goal is to have a barrier-free facility within the next ten years.
