Thursdays are free admission which is really nice! It's a small gallery, and so you can likely be in an out within an hour. Something I really liked was the posting area, where people can take a black card and with white pencil write or draw something about art. I enjoy these sorts of things, and I think it's a... More

The Kelowna Art gallery is a great place to visit! Always great exhibits displayed. :) I saw the famous group of 7 and it contained a lot of Canadian talent.

We went to the Group of Seven Exhibition on loan from Hart House. It was a hot day and the cool of the gallery was a welcome respite from the heat and the hustle and bustle of that area of town. The exhibit was exquisite and there were some other artists such as Emily Carr represented as well. The small... More

The Kelowna art gallery selected for... More

Kelowna’s down town area is relatively small but has, in addition to the spectacular lake side promenade, a number of interesting places to enjoy. It is easy to see most of them in an afternoon. The other day, I decided to do one more walking tour of the cultural district before it gets too cold. I usually start walking down... More

As I was concerned about the weather ( and being the lover of art that I am) I chose to start my day at this gem in the heart of downtown Kelowna. There is a $5 entrance fee for adults which is very reasonable. There is a free section of the gallery near the entrance area which was showcasing art... More
