Kootenay Gallery of Arts

The Kootenay Gallery invites visitors to explore their diverse collection of rotating contemporary art exhibitions of work by both local and national artists. The gift shop carries items created by Kootenay artists in every artistic medium, such as large-scale paintings, a variety of ceramics, woodwork, and hand-crafted jewellery. The gallery also hosts regular events including art programming, kids and adult workshops, and fundraisers.
Overlooking the Columbia River, the gallery is connected to a vast network of easy to moderate hiking trails. This gallery is a hidden treasure worth discovering. The Kootenay Gallery of Art, History and Science, located in Castlegar, is a public art gallery that serves the entire West Kootenay Region with a variety of exhibitions and public programming for all ages and is operated by a Board of Directors and staff who strive to accomplish the goals set in our mission statement.
It is one of the 28 original exhibition centers built in the 1970s so that rural people could enjoy the great works of art, sourced regionally, nationally and internationally as well as provide a professional venue for regional artists to show and sell their work.
