The mission of The Reach Gallery Museum is to be the center of cultural and creative innovation in the Fraser Valley, committed to showcasing the best in the visual arts from both inside and outside our community. The Reach is a gathering place that fosters intercultural and intergenerational exchanges in an environment of mutual respect and understanding. The purpose-built, 20,000 square foot LEEDS certified facility opened in September 2008, serving a primary audience of 180,000 citizens residing in metropolitan Abbotsford and a larger secondary audience from across BC’s Lower Mainland. The Reach also welcomes visitors from across the country and around the world. As the only professionally operated public art gallery in the Fraser Valley, The Reach plays a central role in the development of regional arts practitioners and audiences. Now in its second decade, The Reach has become a thriving hub of cultural activity providing audiences with a robust range of programs and experiences. It has received a Governor General’s History Award for Excellence in Community Programming, and BC Museums Association Awards for Excellence in Exhibitions and Excellence in Community Engagement.
