The Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives

 

The Peel Art Gallery, Museum and Archives (PAMA) serves the Region of Peel (Brampton, Caledon and Mississauga), a rapidly growing municipality with a population of over one million people from varied backgrounds, and is located in downtown Brampton, Ontario (just outside Toronto). PAMA includes the Region of Peel Museum, the Art gallery of Peel and the Region of Peel Archives. After 40 years, all three collections have grown dramatically – that is why we are expanding. This means more spaces for new exhibitions of art and artefacts, more storage for treasures and new opportunities for community connections. Re-opens fall 2012.

 

The renewed Museum galleries will feature the Peel Story, examining 200+ years of settlement through the themes of immigration, creativity and changing land use.

 

The Region of Peel Archives was established in 1977. It holds a large collection that includes several photograph collections with a strong local connection.

 

The Art Gallery of Peel’s permanent collection features significant Canadian pieces, both contemporary and historic, with a special focus on artists from Peel. This collection will be featured in the spacious new galleries, alongside a series of innovative and provocative temporary exhibits.
