Art Galleries & Artists

The distinct and remarkable landscape of the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast has served as an inspiration for many talented artists who call this region home.
Be sure to explore the charming town of Wells, a vibrant hub of arts and culture. In a town whose winter population is 240, there are six galleries located in brightly painted heritage buildings, which are all accessible by foot.
A "must-see" gallery is the Chris Harris Studio Gallery in 108 Mile Ranch. Housed in the straw-bale built gallery are stunning photographic stills of the Cariboo and Chilcotin landscape and wildlife, which are dramatically lit to bring out their full beauty.
Aboriginal art is well represented on the coast (though it can be found throughout the entire region). In Bella Coola, explore the Petroglyph Gallery for authentic Nuxalk (the local First Nations) masks and jewellery, and a large selection of art by the prominent Nuxalk artist Silyas Saunders.
