The Campbell River Art Gallery is an accessible starting point when exploring the area's arts scene.
The gallery is located in the same building as the Visitor Centre on the eastside of the Tyee Plaza parking lot downtown. Talk to the friendly staff at either location for tips on private galleries, home studios and exhibition spaces.
Campbell River Art Gallery
The Campbell River Art Gallery presents 20 exhibitions annually in its two galleries, many of them dedicated to local and Vancouver Island visual artists. Summer programs for children, teens, and adults allow visiting creatives to satisfy their own passions while partners and/or other family members play in the outdoors. The small gift shop is packed with work by such Campbell River artists as painter Carol Seeley, sculptor Sylvia McGourlick and raku potter Ellen Statz.
The gallery sponsors an annual garden and art tour in early July. And during the six-week pre-Christmas period, the space becomes an arts and crafts market featuring giftwrappable creations from more than 80 plus local artisans.
