Once housed in cramped quarters, this gallery has now come into its own. It is an opportunity to indulge away from extraneous noise in the creative artistry of notable British Columbians and other Canadian artists It is a gallery worthy of an afternoon--choose a rainy day when the contents will brighten you spirits..

Went there with my sister and her kid. We had a blast seeing all the arteries around the gallery. Unfortunately, the first floor section was closed for an exhibit other than that, it was a blast visit. I recommend it for art lovers.

It's beautiful place to visit and see what the artists have come up with in their work. Gorgeous hard work each piece exhibited here has its own story behind the paining itself.

Our former court house became our main art gallery and the old building is interesting to visit with its high rotunda, spiral staircase and large galleries. The collection is pretty broad and you should be able to find something that everyone will enjoy. Many special displayed are offered so check the website to find out what is featured....also sometimes there... More

This touring exhibition of 40 paintings, arranged by Glasgow museums and the American Federation of Arts, includes other donors as well. Many have biblical themes and some are done not only in oil but... More

I am sure that after it gets built and exhibitions put into place, it will be wonderful. We just missed a Cezanne blockbuster, but instead had only an architectural model of its future form, with text explaining what will be there and what else the architect had built. On the top floor was a minimalist video installation, with flickering images... More
