What a wonderful surprise to walk around the gardens at the back of this jem. The coy pond can get a little hypnotic. Well worth a visit

I usually visit the Penticton art Gallery as much as I can because I like the quality of exhibitions that are, in my opinion, world class. I reported earlier this year on their exhibition of the contemporary Syrian art which was a powerful and high impact exhibition. A few months later, in November, I was there and was again pleasantly... More

By the time you read this review, the summer exhibition that really impressed me will be gone, but I wanted to honour the decision of the gallery to pull this show together and share this work with the world. Sadly, when I think of the Middle East what comes to mind is violence and destruction, oppression and uncertainly, militants and... More

The shows change regularly and with the numerous times we have visited, we have never been disappointed. They also have a very well stocked gift shop a ton of beautiful handmade items. Worth the trip!

Each year we come to Penticton and head straight for the public gallery on the waterfront. The exhibitions are first class and compare to any public or private galleries on the coast. The range artists and the feature exhibitons are so well presented this is a gem that Penticton would be advised to promote more and raise this important profile... More

I wasn't sure what to expect during my visit, and was rewarded with three thought provoking exhibits! While traveling I often also shop for affordable gifts for friends and family, and Penticton Art Gallery did not disappoint on that front either. Make time to stop in and see whatever they currently have on offer...it will definitely be rewarding!

I am an art gallery lover and I stop by this gallery whenever I find myself in town visiting friends. I'm consistently impressed by the quality of shows on offer in a small town like Penticton. When I last stopped, there was a powerful show by a group of young, gutsy Syrian artists in one room and a hauntingly beautiful... More

During the summer, my wife and I regularly go to Penticton BC, in the Okanagan valley to enjoy its great summer weather and its unique location between the Okanagan and Skaha lakes. Every time we visit, we make a point of going to the Penticton Art Gallery, a small but interesting place. This time, however, we did go to primarily... More
