The Simmons Gallery building was completed in December 2015 after a three-year capital campaign that fundraised almost $100,000 for construction of a multi-functional gallery-office studio building. Ts is located in Saunders Park next to the Trinidad Museum and Library on property that Glenn and Janis Saunders donated to the Land Trust.
The Gallery's namesake, Ned Lee Simmons, was a Land Trust board member for nearly 20 years! His friends made significant donations in his memory that funded the construction of this beautiful office that also functions as an art gallery, highlighting local artists that highlight our beautiful coast.
Since our first gallery exhibit opening in 2016, the Simmons Gallery has hosted successful artist exhibits where nature, conservation and art are highlighted in our community culture. Check out some of our past exhibits in the slideshows below.
