the centre


With a mission to inspire Canadians through heritage and the arts, and to celebrate the origins and evolution of Canada as a nation, the Confederation Centre of the Arts is the cultural heart of Prince Edward Island. In 2010, the Sobey Foundation established an endowment and named the Sobey Gallery for the exhibition and display of Canadian art. The Gallery is host to touring and collection-based exhibitions and is central to PEI’s place in the Canadian visual arts’ dialogue.

Since 2011, The Sobey Gallery has been the host venue of such exhibits as: Kim Morgan: Range Light, Dan Steeves: The Memory of Pain, Hilda Woolnough: A Retrospective,  Marcel Dzama: Early Drawings, Five Decades: A Canadian Art Collection, Doing Our Own Thing: Back to the Land In Eastern Canada in the 1970’s, Imperial Design: Samuel Holland’s 1765 Map and the Making of Prince Edward Island.
