About Black and Gold

The Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery (KWAG) is Waterloo Region’s oldest and largest public art gallery. Our mission is connecting people and ideas through art; we achieve this through first-rate exhibitions by national and international artists and by making art accessible for all ages and all segments of society. Thanks to generous corporate support, admission to the Gallery is free.

Each year, KWAG hosts one major fundraiser – the Black & Gold Gala; in 2017, the event takes place on Thursday, October 19 at Bingemans. The Gala is a key source of funding for the Gallery’s exhibitions and public programs. Last year, contributions from community members helped us to raise over $55,000!

KWAG is a registered charity (#107579674RR0001) and not-for-profit organization that has been serving the community for sixty years.  For more information on KWAG, click here.
