Huge display of Canadian artists. Now that we have found this shop, we can decorate our home with unique art. This is a must see for Calgarians and visitors to Calgary. You will not be disappointed! We can’t wait to go back

Canadian Craft, but not so easy to find
Jul. 2019 • Couples
My suggestion is to take a cab as the building is near a bridge under renovation and the building isn't well marked. The entrance is around the side. It is well worth the trip as the gallery holds a wide variety of affordable Canadian Art and fine craft. The people working in the gallery are very friendly and helpful.

Great Art, Great Souvenirs
Sep. 2018 • Family
The best place to spend a couple of hours enjoying local craftsmanship and looking for that perfect souvenir of gift without the tackiness of the normal tourist traps. Inglewood is a great little community with great shops and eating places. A must visit place while in Calgary, if you don't go you'll miss out!

Best Place for Calgary Souvenirs (and great art)
Aug. 2018 • Family
The Galleria should be an absolute MUST stop for souvenirs if you have visitors from out of town - as it is stocked with art and collectibles from local artists. As someone else pointed out, there is a wide variety of prices so will suit any budget.

I have bought quite a few items here over the years and we make it a point of visiting anytime we are taking a stroll through Inglewood. Even if you don't buy anything, this little art gallery has such great items to look at, it's worth a visit.

And, on a last note, I recently placed a special order. They were great to deal with and my items were in within a week!

Lovely store with brilliant Canadian art and craft
Sep. 2017 • Couples
I remember this store when it was on Kensington. The manager there was the reason it was so amazing.
The current location in Inglewood is fantastic. The art and craft is displayed beautifully, and so well curated. Simply beautiful!!!
I HIGHLY recommend a visit, and the opportunity to support local Calgary small business that supports Canadian Arts.
Super grateful there are places like this to visit instead of the box store made in China crap that is taking over the world. Please people, refrain from decorating your homes with "live, laugh, love" and other cliches, get some proper art and feel good about supporting Canadians.
BRILLIANT STORE!

Thank you Michael F. for your well thought out review of the Galleria. It is means a great deal to me that you have taken the time and spoken so kindly of Galleria. Supporting local and Canadian artisans has been the main thrust of the store, especially since our move to Inglewood. It is gratifying to know we are appreciated.

DON'T EXPECT ANY COMPASSION FROM THE OWNER
Apr. 2016 • Solo
I have shopped several times at the Galleria but the last time I was there I had a very bad experience.
I had purchased a mug, left the store, went down the stairs towards the parking lot. I fell off a 1/2 step. The 1/2 step is very dangerous and it needs to be marked. However, not sure that will ever happen.
Anyway, I went back into the shop and was given a bandage by the employees.
I asked for the owner to call me so I could talk to her about the step.
She phoned me 2 days later. Right from the beginning, I felt the owner really did not care that I had hurt myself. I was going to the doctor 4 days later and I asked her specifically if she was going to call me after the appointment and she said yes.
That never happened.
A week and a half later, I phoned the owner. I was very disappointed that she could not bother to phone me to see how I was doing. I hurt myself on the store's property. She said that her employees said I had only hurt my leg. I couldn't believe she was going on what they said. I had twisted my ankle and hurt my leg and arm. She was not compassionate at all and it did not appear that she cared one bit. Some customer service!
To make matters worse, she was very rude on the phone and hung up on me. HUNG UP on a customer - she was in a fighting mode rather than trying to resolve the issue. Wow, that is how you treat your customers?? I was shocked and very disappointed. I have never been treated by a business owner like that before.
I will not be supporting that business. Poor, poor customer relations.

Customers beware!!

Hello Sue, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am very sorry that you feel I was not compassionate in my dealing with your incident. As you may recall from our phone conversations I was dealing with the death of my mother and father at the time of your visit to the store and for several weeks afterwards. Customer service is of the utmost importance to myself and my staff. One of the things that we do, is offer to package breakable items properly, before they leave the store, so that they arrive home safe and sound. As you declined our offer to package your mug before leaving, we cannot accept responsibility for it breaking. Unfortunately, my staff do not have first aid training, therefore, they offered to drive you to a clinic or hospital for professional assessment, you also declined that offer and said that the one bandaid they gave you, was sufficient to cover the scratch on your knee. It is indeed very important to address all safety issues with regard to the store and so, as per our initial conversation, we have notified the owner of the property about your experience. Again, I am sorry that you have had this experience, we believe we have been as reasonable with our response as possible. Thank you, Susan Copley

Highly recommended!
Sep. 2013 • Couples
I always like to take something home from my travels that is made in the country I'm visiting and a bit unique but not ridiculously expensive. After three weeks of looking I was starting to feel I wasn't going to find anything as most shops sell mass produced stuff, often made overseas. Then I found this cornucopia of delights. I could have spent far more than I did but unfortunately the bag allowance wouldn't let me. I left with a beautiful picture by a local artist, a couple of bowls and a handmade scarf all at a very reasonable price. If you are looking for something different then DO visit Galleria - you won't be disappointed.

Thank you for taking the time to rate Galleria as highly as you did. It is reviews like yours that really make the difference. Our advertising budget is somewhat restricted due to the fact that the greater part of each sale goes back to the artisan. Word of mouth is truly something that money can't buy and I appreciate the fact that wrote such a great review about Galleria, Kind regards, Susan Copley

THE place for genuine, original Canadian art and craft
Sep. 2013 • Couples
The Galleria is a welcome breath of fresh air after visiting dozens of shops selling mass-produced tourist tat (half of it made overseas). They sell a huge range of artwork including paintings, drawings, sculpture, pottery, glassware, textiles and woodwork, all of it made by Canadian artists and crafts-people. Styles range from traditional to contemporary, but it is all high quality.

Prices range from a few dollars to a lot of dollars (!) but whatever you can afford, the wares on sale are worth every cent. Just make sure to leave a few kilos spare in your baggage allowance!
