Copyright & Reproductions


The Judith & Norman Art Gallery's collection contains over 1000 works of art by Canadian artists. Reproductions, mostly in digital form, are available for reproduction and research purposes. The Collections Department handles all requests for the use of images of artworks in the Gallery's collection for individual, non-profit and commercial purposes. For information on placing a request, see below, or contact shelly.mallon@county-lambton.on.ca for details.


Copyright protects the creator of an artwork from unauthorized or inappropriate use of their work. The owner of copyright is usually the work's creator or heirs, unless the work is in the public domain. If you wish to use a reproduction of a work for purposes other than personal use, it is your responsibility to obtain copyright permission. 

A general guide to Canadian copyright:

• Living artist - copyright owned by the artist
• Deceased artist (less than 50 years) – copyright owned by the heirs
• Deceased artist (more than 50 years) – copyright expired, work in the public domain
