We always enjoy the shows they bring in. Beautifully and thoughtfully curated. They also have a well-selected range of items in their little gift shop.

A great way to spend an afternoon - rain or shine! The Art Gallery is located a bit off the beaten path but when you get there, you have the opportunity of viewing some great, local and national artists including some of Emily Carr's original...More
