“So refreshing: world-class art in the Okanagan valley”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Wherever we travel we always hit the art galleries and museums but w weren't expecting much on our trip through the Okanagan valley in British Columbia. The AAA guide mentioned the Geert Maas Gardens and Gallery was close to the highway, so we thought we'd drop by. It was a great decision: the art is world-class, and very affordable. We're from New York, where artists often charge much more from their studios. Go if you have at least a half hour to stroll around. We visited for an hour and will be back on our next trip. Leave a donation - or buy something (we did).

“Unique, beautiful setting, informal, for all art lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

Having spent a lot of time in Kelowna throughout my life, I was looking for something different and unique on my recent trip there - something other than wineries and the lake. Geert Maas Sculpture Gardens was exactly what I was looking for. It's located just east of the Glenmore valley, about 10-15 minutes drive from downtown Kelowna. It's in open farmland area, on a rolling hilltop with striking views. You can spend time roaming around looking at the outdoor sculpture, or inside looking at sculpture and mixed media arts. The art work is in modern/abstract style; however, I believe any art lover would find the art and the grounds interesting. I didn't meet Geert, but his wife was very friendly and informative and showed me and my Grandparents around the gallery. Make sure you leave a donation.

“Would buy if I had the money...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2009

I really enjoyed walking around the property and viewing all the amazing pieces of artwork. Very quiet and no other visitors were there at the time. Definitely out of my price range but would buy and place around my property if it was possible. There are smaller pieces available inside for purchase which is what I ended up doing. Go and you won't regret it!

“worth going out of your way for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2007

Geert Maas is a master sculptor in bronze of both works on an immense scale for a public garden or corporate office park and works on a more intimate scale to put on a table or shelf at home. Just take a peek at his website [--]
To see a large collection of his work in a lovely setting and perhaps meet the artist himself is a treat and well worth making a trip to Kelowna for. When we planned our vacation in BC and the Canadian Rockies, we debated going through Kamloops or Kelowna and are so glad we chose the Kelowna route. Although we generally treat galleries like museums and don't expect to actually purchase anything, we were so taken with his work that we actually bought both a small bronze sculpture and a print.
