As one of the oldest historic properties in the city the Dominion building — pre-dates Confederation and has hosted the Gallery since 1988. It has been in need of funding for a while now to maintain its architectural integrity and upkeep. Preyra says the investment will go towards replacing the sandstone on the exterior walls.
