Art Galleries & Artists

Art tours of the Alberni Valley invariably begin at the first-rate Rollin Art Centre in the heart of town.
From there, aficionados can chart their own course in touring the area’s 20 plus workshops, studio galleries, and home studios.
Rollin Art Centre
Home base for the Community Arts Council of the Alberni Valley, the Rollin Art Centre space features a rotating series of seasonal exhibits. The gift shop is packed with locally made arts and crafts – paintings, glasswork, First Nations carvings, painted rocks, jewellery, pottery, sculptures, and hand-made teddy bears. The surrounding gardens make for a peaceful stroll following a spot of tea on the centre’s terrace. (3061 Eighth Avenue at Argyle Street.)
Harbour Quay Galleries
A 10-block hike downhill from the Rollin to the waterfront Alberni Harbour Quay leads to several more fine professional galleries.

Owned & operated by Nuu-chah-nulth artist Gordon Dick. When you come into the gallery, you will immediately smell the cedar & see many fresh cedar chips on the floor as Gordon & other artists are often working on wood carvings in the gallery.
Through Ahtsik Native Art Gallery, Gordon wants to be a role model to show that First Nations individuals can be successful. He aims to share with the world the talents of Nuu-chah-nulth & other First Nations' artists. Ahtsik Native Art Gallery appreciates the hand-crafted work that Canadian Aboriginal artists put into their art pieces & houses original art from many First Nations.
