Drawing inspiration from its magnificent landscape, British Columbia's artists use the province's natural beauty and raw materials to create remarkable treasures showcased in BC art galleries.
Towering totem poles, powerful sculptures and masks, bold prints and exquisitely designed jewellery tell the story of BC's first peoples. Dramatic paintings, evocative photographs and a cornucopia of craft arts capture the province's diverse geography and multi-faceted spirit.

BC claims artists of national and international renown. View their work at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Museum of Anthropology, Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Eagle Aerie Gallery and Bill Reid Gallery of Northwest Coast Art.
Aboriginal art is preserved in cultural centres such as the U’mista Cultural Centre, or weathered by the natural environment like the totem poles of Duncan and Gwaii Haanas National Park.

The Rufus Lin Gallery of Japanese Art is a fine art museum established by Rufus Lin. The gallery aims to introduce to North Americans some of the most talented artists presently working in Japan, who are generally unknown outside Japan. This includes both professionals and amateur artists.
All work is selected by a jury, based on a set of stringent criteria. Most of the collection consists of paintings based on Japanese themes and motifs. Our gallery refreshingly counteracts the ubiquity of popular Japanese culture and demonstrates that contemporary Japanese culture goes far deeper than manga and anime.
