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.

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!

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!

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!

On our visit to Osoyoos, we happened upon this little art gallery. You could easily miss it as the frontage is very small. However, a very interesting and friendly place to spend a leisurely hour whilst in town. Very talented local artists were on display each with their own uniquely characteristic style and the price, if you are wanting to buy, was reasonable for an original art piece. Recommended.

This is very much a community art gallery for local artists so do not expect a collection of Picassos or Monets. It is lovey to see so much talent with some of the artists around to talk about their works.

My wife, Brenda, and I have attended two of the "First Friday" events here. The first one to check the place out and the second time to support a guest artist friend of ours. The various artistic styles and mediums used are nothing short of amazing. The gallery itself is a number of rooms attached to a long, narrow hallway that you enter from the main street. It's deceiving from the outside but very much worth exploring. If you are a fan of any type of artwork, you must check this gallery out. It features pieces you would expect to see in much larger galleries in bigger cities, so this is truly a gem. We'll travel from Princeton again for more 'First Friday' events, and even invited friends of ours from Princeton who joined us at the March event. Don't walk by this location the next time it is open! Thanks.
