RiverBrink Art Museum

RiverBrink Art Museum is located in the historic village of Queenston, Niagara-on-the-Lake. Open to the public since 1983, the museum is home to a unique collection of over 1,400 works by Canadian and international artists. 

Situated in a large Georgian-style country home on the banks of the scenic Niagara River, RiverBrink features exhibitions organized from the art collection of Samuel E. Weir, Q.C.  An Ontario-based lawyer and avid art collector throughout his lifetime, Weir acquired the majority of works in the museum, which continues to collect through donations and purchases.  Along with paintings, prints, works, on paper, and sculpture, the collection includes decorative art, archival material, and rare books.

Exhibitions are organized from the permanent collection as well as loans from both public institutions and private collectors.
