The Plaskett Gallery at Massey Theatre was named after Joseph Plaskett. Joseph (Joe) Plaskett, who was born in New Westminster, BC in 1918 and grew up in British Columbia. Plaskett is considered to be one of Canada’s most talented and established painters, and the Plaskett Gallery at the Massey Theatre is dedicated to honouring his name and legacy by featuring emerging and established artists from New Westminster and the region.
The gallery itself is an inspiring space to encounter art and the perfect complement to the historic Massey Theatre, one of the Lower Mainland’s most prestigious spaces. The 1260 proscenium arch theatre is home to musical theatre, dance and musical performances throughout the year, including shows from our resident companies Royal City Musical Theatre, Mushtari Begum Society, Savage Society, New Westminster Symphony Orchestra, Royal City Youth Ballet and Maple Leaf Singers
You are invited to explore, discover and be inspired by the Plaskett Gallery at the Massey Theatre.
