Very impressed with not only the layout but the content as well. Especially the focus on Indigenous art in their gallery. Highly recommend taking the time to visit this Gallery if you are in town. Well worth the visit.

I was highly impressed with the variety of Indigenous art in their new gallery. They even have a place where one can get an Indigenous tattoo. The four black hoods were a little out there.

WE stopped by here for less than an hour. It had some great Inuit art, a small but worthwhile collection of sculptures, and a couple of good short videos.

Fun collection and an eclectic building. We were traveling Highway 1 and needed a break. Art museums feel a lot about a city plus are super relaxing. Nice break from the highway.

The Art Gallery does not do that. You could call them to see if they know if anyone who would be interested in looking at your work
