The Ontario Association of Art Galleries (OAAG) was established in 1968 to encourage development of public art galleries, art museums, community galleries and related visual arts organizations in Ontario, Canada. It was incorporated in Ontario in 1970, and registered as a charitable organization. The OAAG is a successor organization to the Southern Ontario Gallery Group founded in 1947, renamed the Art Institute of Ontario in 1952. The OAAG runs courses and workshops and provides assistance to art galleries in areas such as conservation and arranging exhibitions.[1] Most member galleries participate in a reciprocal admissions program, where membership of one gallery gives admission to the others.[2] The organization provides a liaison between galleries and the Ontario Arts Council.[3]
