Eptek Art & Culture Centre

Due to COVID-19, we have decided to close all of our provincial museums until further notice, effective immediately. Thank you for your understanding.

Eptek Art & Culture Centre is an exhibition facility that offers frequently-changing exhibits, a variety of programming, and a gift shop featuring a wide selection of Island-made fine art and craft, and books on Island themes. Exhibits and programming highlihgt visual art, craft, history, culture, and science. Make sure to visit the permanent exhibit on Summerside's early history and architecture.

Open year-round, Eptek offers weekday art and craft demonstrations in the summer months. In the winter months, Eptek Centre becomes a community hub with many events: exhibit openings, a weekly film series, monthly book club meetings, lectures, book launches, demonstrations, and other special events.

Plan a visit to the Eptek Art & Culture Centre to sample the rich Island culture. All are welcome.
