On May 28, 2018 I came down from Port Hardy and took the ferry over to Salt Spring Island where I was staying for a couple of nights. At around 4:00 pm I tried to grab an early dinner at Auntie Pesto's Cafe, but was told that it would be open for guests at around 4:45 pm. I looked around the plaza a bit and walked into Steffichfineart. What quickly caught my attention was the the rock music content in the gallery. I saw this very impressive hard-cover book by rock photographer, Dee Lippingwell. This book, entitled First Three Songs...No Flash contained countless concert photographs of both headlining and lesser known bands spanning several decades. My only regret was that I did not buy it at the time. When I return there, I intend on buying it.

While in the gallery I met the owner, Matt Steffich. He was very friendly and showed me a number of rock gig poster exhibits which included original ticket stubs from concerts from the past. Major performing artists performed live for less than $10.00 a ticket in the distant past. Matt's history as a musician and appreciation of music made for a great conversation. Matt also explained how some of the non-music artwork in the gallery came into being and the time taken by the artists to complete the work.

I was very impressed with this gallery and will definitely return either later this year or next year. There are a number of galleries on Salt Spring Island. Matt's gallery was the one that impressed me the most, given its content and the manner in which Matt treated people whom came into the gallery. I would highly recommend this gallery to anyone visiting the island.

We enjoyed browsing the art work of local artists with a variety of paintings, sculpture, and pottery. We met one of the artists who explained the background of her own work as well as the other artists pieces in the gallery.

We saw a breath taking array of high end art. Really fine pieces at very high prices. Famous artists represented as well as some who should be famous. Definitely worth a visit and if you have the resources worth a purchase. We could easily have spent more time and will be back.

Step into the gallery and you are caught by wind sculptures, amazing indigenous pieces and art from many regions - photographs that feel like paintings. A must-see when you are on Salt Spring.

Even if you can't afford anything, have a peek just to be inspired. In fact, you might just as easily persuade yourself to visit a second time!

So surprised to find an art gallery hidden away in downtown Ganges that has a large selection of west coast artisans & native original art. Many Norval Morriseau originals on view & a wealth of knowledge to be learned from gallery owner Matt Steffich. A rare treat to find someone who not only knew Norval, but began his collection with a Morriseau painting! So informative & knowledgeable. The gallery is full of unique & rare pieces. Well worth repeat visits!!!
