Ontario Shores Art Gallery

Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences (Ontario Shores) is a public teaching hospital located in Whitby, Ontario providing a range of specialized assessment and treatment services to those living with complex and serious mental illness. In 2008 Ontario Shores launched the Art Gallery  to bring people together that share an interest in art.  They partner with local art groups, councils and organizations such as Robert McLaughlin Art Gallery, O’Neil Secondary School and Station Gallery in Whitby to support emerging and established artists from all around Ontario.  They host art shows and provide diverse art educational programming to use art as a medium to reduce stigma and promote mental health awareness.  The Art Gallery is a creative and tranquil space for patients, families, employees, students and community to visit.  Ontario Shores believes that art, film and music provide a well-documented therapeutic benefit for people with mental illness.  For more information please visit: www.ontarioshores.ca
