Art Galleries & Artists
Glass artwork (Danielle Hayes photo)
Local art in the Kootenay Rockies region is found in more than just galleries.
Public art sculptures enhance the streetscape, coffee shops proudly display local artwork (and serve up regionally brewed coffee), and modest studios are hidden in backstreets.
There is a thriving arts scene in nearly all towns and communities across the region. Stroll through the heritage downtown of Nelson where galleries and stores brim with local art, or hop between working studios in Crawford Bay. Creston is home to colourful public murals.
Sometimes art is in the architecture. The Arts Station in Fernie is housed in an early 20th century Canadian Pacific Railway station, and Nelson’s Touchstones Nelson Museum of Art & History exists in a beautiful stone building circa the 1900s.
The Kootenay Rockies region is also home to some unique creative eneavours. In Kaslo, admire the fine-detail of the ancient Japanese art of fish rubbings (also known as Gyo-taku); or discover Doukhobor artwork and artists in Castlegar.
