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!

Nice gallery to wander around

There is some lovely art in this gallery and some mediocre stuff too but galleries are always a pleasure to wander around.

If you're sick of looking at stuffed bears, t-shirts, keychains and shot glasses on Banff ave, take a stroll over here to Canada House. We bought a magnificent painting here in 2010 ( they ship ) and there's no sales pressure. On our most recent visit they seemed to have more Inuit art and carvings. Bring your wallet.

Whenever we are in Banff we stop in to see the new paintings and sculptures on display.

We always visit this gallery and just wish I could afford their prices! There are some inspiration pieces on display so its like going to an art gallery rather than a store.

Good mix of Canadian artists and different styles of art. We have ordered several pieces, and the gallery approached one of their artists for a specific piece on our request. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Love their demo days, where they have several artists in.
