You can't get it much better. A lovely old home, converted to an art gallery and gift shop, with a stunning water view where all the halls are filled with original art. Each of the old bedrooms is filled with a cornucopia of treasures, including almost every form of art or craft. And then, when you are too tired to look any more, there is the tea. Don't miss it!

Coast Collective Art Gallery is a gallery and gift shop located in a historic house in a beautiful setting adjacent to Esquimalt Lagoon and the ocean. For art lovers and those who would like to buy art or gifts featuring local talent, and local themes at a reasonable price, this should not be missed. The gallery changes exhibits about once a month, so there is always something new to see. They also offer weekend workshops in a wide variety for artists of all kinds.
The setting is in a park like area with spots to enjoy the natural gardens, and it is only a minutes walk to the waters edge of Esquimalt Lagoon. Tea and cookies are available by donation in the conservatory and you have a great view of the bird life of the lagoon and the ocean.
As a local, I go here about once a month and sometimes have enjoyed a painting workshop.
There is no admission fee and the gallery will take you 1-1 1/2 hours. Plan on more time in the area if you fancy spending time bird watching or sitting on the beach of the lagoon.
One of my absolute favorites in the Victoria area.

Located on gorgeous Esquimalt Lagoon, the Coast Collective Art Centre is the perfect place to spend an afternoon. Housed in stately Pendray House, the estate is an art gallery, gift shop and art school, all in one. The main art gallery space has frequently changing collections. There are four rooms that comprise the gift shop, which are filled with the work of local artisans. If you are looking for a unique, handcrafted and high quality gifts or the perfect piece of art for your home, this is where to shop!
