Art Galleries & Artists

Like the rest of the Sunshine Coast, Powell River is home to a thriving arts scene.
From the strip of galleries on Marine Avenue to the private studios around the area, visitors will find a wealth of paintings, pottery, sculpture, and First Nations carvings to satiate their artistic cravings.
Artique (4722 Marine Ave.) is a cooperative gallery that showcases the work of more than 20 local artists. In this elegantly laid-out space, view and purchase abstract landscapes by Megan Dulcie Dill or hand-carved First Nations yellow cedar boxes by Bob Brackenbury. Also worth visiting is the neighbouring Studio 3 (4710 Marine Ave.), which displays the colourful creations of Lee Mackenzie, Joyce Furness, and Alexene Silver.
