Nice architecture, the top floor (courtroom) is awesome, gotta go there. It's nice they use the building for art.

This is a small gallery and interesting if you are interested in modern art. I am afraid I have seen many art galleries so this one to me was merely a glimpse of what is around. Enjoyed the photos more.

Current Exhibit was Re Present: Photography from South Asia. Interesting combo of historical photos combined with art by modern Indian artists. Well curated with minimal opinion in the text, allowing one to form one's own opinion on what is being presented. The historical photos help...More

We are soooooo glad that, by luck, we visited the Kamloops Art Gallery on a Thursday, which meant "Free Admission". To have paid to endure this travelling art show of self-indulgent ridiculousness would have added insult to injury. There is no excuse for the city...More

Unfortunately the main exhibit was closed for installation so we just saw the small exhibits. It shares a common entrance with the Kamloops public library so we hung out in the library to read some magazines to pass the time.

What a lovely gallery. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this smaller gallery. And only $5 entry fee! Definitely worth visiting.
