The Art Gallery of Sudbury is an art gallery in Sudbury, Ontario.

Established in 1967 by the city's chamber of commerce under the Canadian Centennial projects, the gallery is located in the historic turn of the century arts and crafts movement Belrock Mansion of William J. Bell, an early lumber baron in the city and philanthropist.[1] It was originally known as the Laurentian University Museum and Art Centre, or LUMAC, and adopted its current name in 1997.

On October 27, 2010, the gallery announced that it will begin fundraising for and building a new 14,000-square-foot (1,300 m2) gallery building, to be named the Franklin Carmichael Gallery, with an initial target date of 2014.[2][3]
