Overview

Since 1974 Canada House Gallery has been a destination for Canadian art in Banff. Representing over 50 painters, 20 sculptors, 3 jewellery designers plus Inuit art there's always something new and exciting to see. You'll receive a warm welcome from friendly and informative gallerists. If you don't see what you're looking for, let us know - we have many works tucked away in the back room. Everyone is welcome... come on in after hiking, skiing, cycling, horseback riding.... our art friends enjoy our gallery in their jeans, gortex and spandex!

I always stop here when I am in Banff. The art is very diverse and interesting. They have enlarged the shop since my last visit. I missed buying a painting by minutes. I should have acted on my impulse when I entered the gallery.More
