Interesting display but a very small gallery. Seems to showcase one artist only at a time. Nice small museum store with some nice things.

I went here with a group of people this summer, and while we were baffled by the exhibits, we did enjoy them. The gallery store was almost as entertaining as the exhibits, containing hundreds of extremely cool (and expensive) odds and ends, stocking stuffers, and fancy ties.

It isn't a huge space, but the gallery is really nice. It's free on thursdays to enter, and there were three small exhibits. One in particular was called back to the future, and showed old pictures of Kamloops with current pictures of the same spaces. It was really interesting to see how many buildings have been repurposed and have stood... More

I enjoy regular trips to the Kamloops Art Gallery. I have been privileged to visit many of the best art museums around the world and while the KAG is relatively small, they consistently bring in excellent shows. Gallery staff are knowledgeable and friendly. They also have excellent events such as the artist talks they organized this past spring. It is... More

We just arrived to Kamloops and browsing around downtown when we saw the sign for Free Admission Thursday and stopped by the gallery. It is a cute multi-purpose building with the public library on the other side. The current exhibit was really interesting as I am into mixed media art. The cool part is also the photo gallery displayed which... More

I love the fact they offer a free gallery showing on Thursdays. I wouldn't be able to attend during university without that deal!! Amazing staff and such a beautiful building.... it's truly a dream to have this place in Kamloops!

friendly welcoming and interesting,We participated in drawing our favorite paintings, learned that you can be an arts supporter by collecting what really interests you. You dont have to own a million dollar painting to invest in a creative atmosphere.

Has an excellent library in the same building with WiFi. Clean and quiet, just the way I like it when studying, two levels with desks and ample space.

I had one free hour in Kamloops and decided to visit the local art gallery. There are not many rooms to visit, but the paintings are very nice and diverse. Very unusual is that it is possible to take pictures of the items in the exhibition. Also, the ladies at the entrance are excellent: very welcoming and helpful. The little... More

The KAG is one of the finest contemporary Art Galleries that you will find outside of the large urban areas. The exhibitions are extraordinary and the staff, knowledgeable. The Gift Store is also a little piece of goodness!!
