Check out the mountain landscapes, various media, sculptures and the general great stuff of a very active mountain arts community. Prices are reasonable and prints are available. Location varies as the summer progresses, but it is always in prominent view on one of the main streets of Jasper.

A lively opening night for JAG's new location in the Clock Tower Mall at 620B Connaught Street set the stage for the gallery this summer.

Yes, I am an artist so I may be more likely to seek out art, but this Artists Guild is well worth a viewing. The artists have a diverse view of Jasper and offer a variety of artworks for sale from weavings, multimedia pieces, paintings to photographs and sculptures. The gallery is staffed by artists volunteering their time as per their agreement so everyone is knowledgeable about the work. This is a not for profit affair so consider a donation as they are currently working on moving into a new building (I took a look at the new site which is under construction at the library location) and it is modern and lovely but off the beaten path. This may make for more difficulty being found in the future and thus more difficulty fundraising for their cause. Please give generously..visit and enjoy. You won't be disappointed by the talent and array of art available.

My wife and I were wandering around Jasper on a really rainy day looking for things to do. We saw this old firehouse that is an art gallery. We were surprised and impressed with the overall quality and atmosphere of the artwork. Quite a range of styles in varying levels of expertise. There were many great pieces of landscapes and what have you, but what made this even more surprising was the more abstract art in this grouping. If you like art or it's really crappy weather, this is a good way to spend time.

The Brush Fire Gallery is located in the old fire hall, just behind the information centre.

Every time I've been there, the paintings and drawings are different, and as with any local artist-run space, some of it's not so good, and some of it's great! There must be a lot of people who moved to Jasper just to be inspired to paint, and others who've lived there for a while who took up painting to interpret their beautiful surroundings.

The prices range widely, from a couple of thousand dollars for major works, right down to postcard prints offered for a few dollars by the more astute artists. You might love some of the pieces and hate others, but you will have an opinion on every one.

Admission is free and accessable. In summer they open the main doors and you can just walk right in.
