Art Galleries & Artists
Glass artwork (Danielle Hayes photo)
Artists on Vancouver Island have a nearly unlimited palette at their disposal.
Everything the island has to offer is used in various creations, such as furniture sculpted out of wave-tossed driftwood, or cedar, arbutus and willow trees carved into intricate patterns.
The Gulf Islands are home to artists of every stripe, including world famous naturalist and painter Robert Bateman. The islands have been called "one of the top 10 artist colonies in North America."
The renowned Chemainus murals are so popular they have spawned imitators in communities as far away as New Zealand and California.
Aboriginal art features prominently on Vancouver Island. The most impressive collections have been on display in galleries around the world, including the Smithsonian Institute in New York.
