    Good local gallery
    Artists cooperatives seem to be more scarce these days no doubt due to rent becoming unaffordable. So it's always great to see a large group like this flourishing in a sprawling, eclectic space with room for every member to have decent representation. Rather than buy a foreign-made souvenir this is great place to find a memento of your visit to the Okanagan Valley. The landscape and the light here are a painter's dream! BTW you need to look carefully for the entrance. It's not to be confused with The Art Gallery of Osoyoos up the hill which is currently displaying a stunning selection of quilts!
    Thank you very much Mark for this wonderful review. We are really proud of our collective members and we enjoy meeting the visitors from all around BC and elsewhere. Thanks again for your comments!

    Hidden little art gallery
    I happened upon this little gallery while waiting to enter the shoe store next door (as only 6 people were allowed at a time due to COVID restrictions). I wandered in to the long hallway to look at the art while I waited and was greeted by a local artist. He explained that the gallery was more than just the hallway, it contained several rooms showcasing art from many local artists. I spent quite a while taking in all of the different pieces and reading about the artists. I purchased a painting to add to my ever growing gallery wall in my living room. So happy to have found this so unexpectedly! Thank you!
    Wow, what a good story, who would have thought that such circumstances would have worked in our favor! We are very happy you found a piece to add to your collection! Art is good for the soul and we hope you are enjoying your new acquisition!

    What talent!
    I just happened upon this gallery on the main street in Osoyoos. The small entry leads to a large gallery, with tons of local talent. The artists who form part of this cooperative are so talented. There are some very good ones. I ended up buying a painting and I just might go back to get another. I definitely recommend this place!
    Thank you very much for your comment TravellinCalgary! We are striving to offer quality Fine Art from our local artists. Hope you return soon!

A beautiful gallery run by wonderful people. Dianne and Wendy could not have been more welcoming or informative. Their gentle, warm approach was so inviting. We loved the collection of art from different artists and the stories that came with many of the items exhibited. Affordable, varied artwork and a wonderful team. Thank you.

Small entrance, but surprisingly large space with welcoming artists running a coop, wonderful art on display, well worth a stop in Osoyoos!

Very nice gallery. Much larger than it appears from the street entrance. Definitely worth checking out. 25 artists’ work inside.

I am gobsmacked by the accessibility and beauty of the space itself, humbly beginning with a small hallway that betrays nothing of the immensity that lies ahead! Adorning this hallway, and indeed the entirety of the gallery's interior, are collected works of a collective of artists, each with their own unique voice, and brilliant commentary that is birthed in and deeply reflective of this local context that is the South Okanagan. It was truly a blessed experience to encounter Libby -- one of the artists of the collective and to have such an unhurried opportunity to drink in a veritable smorgasbord of beautiful and diverse artwork!

This is a much larger gallery than it looks from the outside. A representation of local art. Many pictures are available in card form if you cannot afford the original or have no wall space! Lovely gentlemen at the desk.
