In 2006, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia opened the Western Branch in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. It is the only satellite gallery in Canada, and helps the AGNS to make art more accessible across the province, as well as to bring visual arts and Nova Scotians together.

 The “Friends” (short for an organization called the Friends of the AGNS Western Branch Association) is a volunteer advisory group made up of people from Clare, Argyle, Yarmouth Town and Municipality. Our primary focus is to assist with:

  • Programming
  • Workshops/Seminars/ Special Events
  • Volunteers
  • PR and Communications
  • Fundraising
