The Sunshine Coast is home to one of the highest per-capita populations of artists in Canada. Visiting the galleries and studios in Sechelt and neighbouring communities is a pleasure for connoisseurs and casual art fans alike.
Sechelt Art Scene
Sechelt is home to the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre (5714 Medusa St.), which features exhibitions by Sunshine Coast artists such as ceramics-maker Katie Janyk, photographer John Davis, and mixed media artist Les Niepo. Literary readings, live music, and art courses also grace the centre.
For a taste of First Nations artwork, check out the museum gift shop at the House of Héwhíwus, or House of Chiefs (5555 Sunshine Coast Hwy.). The museum is dedicated to celebrating the culture of the Sechelt Nation, and visitors can buy handmade moccasins, jewelry, blankets, and more here.
