Since 1974 Canada House Gallery has been a destination for Canadian art in Banff. Representing over 50 painters, 20 sculptors, 3 jewellery designers plus Inuit art there's always something new and exciting to see. You'll receive a warm welcome from friendly and informative gallerists. If you don't see what you're looking for, let us know - we have many works tucked away in the back room. Everyone is welcome... come on in after hiking, skiing, cycling, horseback riding.... our art friends enjoy our gallery in their jeans, gortex and spandex!

Just a wonderful place to source great Canadian art. The owner has expansive knowledge of the artists and their works. I made a small purchase, but was treated as if I were purchasing a large, expensive piece.

Wonderful paintings, sculptures and jewellery of Western Canadian artists. These are muesum type pieces. Reasonably priced and one of a kind. A great viewing place as well as for purchase. A good relief from the touristy shops on Banff Avenue.

I would say this is the place to go if you really want quality art in Banff. They only represent a high calibre of artist. The Canadian Rockies is well represented here.

Fabulous store! We always drop in and look around when we are in Banff - don't always buy but love to see what is there. We have purchased paintings by Peter Wyse, M. Zarb and Peter Shostak in the past and enjoy them very much in our home.

There is nothing better than browsing through an art store of this calibre. There were amazing pieces with a local flavour and it was very easy to find yourself tempted by a number of items. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly. I would revisit often if it was possible.

We bought a carved bear. Service was great. Value was what it is..expensive. The bear was really nice they brought out more for us to choose from because we were looking for something specific.
