CHRISTOPHER PRATT GALLERY
In keeping with the original intent, an art gallery was established on the second floor of the
refurbished building. Prior to the opening of The Rooms, it was the only gallery in
Newfoundland and Labrador with automatic temperature and humidity control.
Christopher Pratt donated a permanent collection of his work to the Gallery to honor his late
mother Christine Dawe, a native of Bay Roberts. Working with the Society, he has been
instrumental in developing an agreement with the Art Gallery of Newfoundland and Labrador
(now the Rooms) whereby the Gallery will receive art exhibits on a regular seasonal basis.
The success of the Gallery has resulted in works of art by artists Helen Parsons Shepherd,
Reginald Shepherd, Jennifer Morgan, Scott Goudie, Jean Claude Roy, Gary Kennedy, Cliff
George, Florence Pinhorn, and Ian Sparkes being donated to the Society.
