Community Art Galleries
Silk Purse Arts Centre
The West Vancouver Community Arts Council is behind the Silk Purse Arts Centre (1570 Argyle Ave), a simple waterfront gallery near Ambleside Park. Check out exhibits ranging from nature-focused watercolours by Lorenzo Leung or charcoal drawings by Fae Lukacs, and admire the window views of Burrard Inlet and passing cruise ships.
The Silk Purse Arts Centre hosts intimate concerts, including jazz, blues, and classical performers such as Jim Byrnes and Bramwell Tovey. The gift shop sells prints, pottery and CDs by local artists.
