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!

Best Art Gallery in Banff

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.

We have spent quite a bit at Canada House Art Gallery over the years and have some lovely large paintings by Canadian artists in our house. We have even been to the owners house to see other types of paintings by same artists on the wall - overflow of art. While Canada House is always on my list to visit... More

We were drawn to Canada House by the excellent reviews in Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The collection and offerings by Canadian artists were exceptional. The personal and attentive service was first rate. Although it was not our initial intent, we purchased a wonderful Massie watercolour. Will definitely go back every time we visit Banff!
