The Gallery has three major collecting and programming strengths as seen in its 8,500+ permanent collection: 19th-century European, Historical Canadian and Contemporary Canadian.

In October 2003, the AGH began a major renovation project, transforming an aging building into an international art destination and safeguarding art works from the leaks that plagued the building. Designed by Hamilton-born and raised architect Bruce Kuwabara, the $18 million recladding and revitalization project is funded by the Canada-Ontario Infrastructure Program (through the Governments of Canada and Ontario), the City of Hamilton, Dofasco, and the generous support of corporations, foundations and individuals.
