Dropped by here in the afternoon and was not let down. Works by Diyan Achjadi were on display and a fantastic stop motion art video called HUSH - very moving indeed. Would recommend this place highly. It isn't a large gallery but the work is fascinating. Entry by donation.

This place is a real gem. The shows can be challenging but that is what makes it so good. The local engagement is amazing, you can see the public programs going on from the street.

I have had the pleasure of viewing the different art at the gallery and it is always a wonderful experience. I also have taken a few different workshops through the gallery and they have been very fulfilling and informative. I highly suggest everyone to take a look at what they are hosting through their Art Lab. It’s fun for kids and adults.

There is a show at the Nanaimo Gallery currently entitled "Trusses" and it is excellent. Featuring the work of Berlin based Canadian tapestry and carpet artist, Shannon Bool and other Canadian notables it is well-curated and housed in a well-designed space in the heart of downtown on Commercial Street - not Fifth.

Have been a few times and enjoyed it, they have changing shows and offer various courses you can take ( adult and children). They have a small shop area with local art products.

Not often a gallery has fibre arts of any kind so it was great to see some spectacular pieces of work.
