Aboriginal Arts and Culture event

We were walking around Mill Lake yesterday and for the first time thought we would check out the small art gallery there in the park. We were greeted warmly by two volunteers and the items on display at this time (they rotate) were explained. We did not realize just how small it is, but it features local artists. It is... More

This was a good event. I really enjoyed listening and looking at the Aboriginal artist's work. The only negative is the driveway and parking area. Parking is limited, so people had parked on both sides of the driveway making it difficult to pass them when entering and exiting.

I love the high quality and affordable art and there is a great gift shop inside to purchase beautiful and original items all year round.

you dont have to head out to the big city to view some wonderful works of art in several mediums. Take time to visit the low key Kariton Gallery right here in our own back yard of Abbotsford. Interesting all year round, but particularly at Christmas. If you are looking for that one-of-a-kind unique gift for a special person(s), then... More

An absolute pleasure! I come in as often as I can on the weekends to say hi to the lovely staff and take a browse around their gift shop. Everyone I have met is fun, friendly and helpful, It's almost UNREAL. The artwork is amazing, I have never seen a bad show here and it's always nice when I recognize... More

In Abbotsford they do a free concert series that has locations all over the city on different nights. I went to the one at the Kariton Art Gallery and was very impressed with the cute little gallery and the friendly staff. Very beautiful art, and it's right at Mill Lake so I'd suggest making an afternoon of it with walking... More
