(Vancouver Art Gallery photo)
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.
