We are soooooo glad that, by luck, we visited the Kamloops Art Gallery on a Thursday, which meant "Free Admission". To have paid to endure this travelling art show of self-indulgent ridiculousness would have added insult to injury. There is no excuse for the city...More

Whatever your creative medium the current show (on until Sept. 9th) is very worth seeing. It explores the early landscapes - shocking at the time, to later abstract works. Everyone has to start somewhere. I found it very interesting from my photographic perspective to see...More

Unfortunately the main exhibit was closed for installation so we just saw the small exhibits. It shares a common entrance with the Kamloops public library so we hung out in the library to read some magazines to pass the time.

What a lovely gallery. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this smaller gallery. And only $5 entry fee! Definitely worth visiting.

From time to time I visit our art gallery and am quite impressed by some of the exhibitions. There have been some very good artists displayed here. Worth seeing and the gift shop is very interesting with many local artists wares for sale.

As an artist myself, this was right up my ally. Beautiful facility, great displays, beautiful artwork. Great way to spend an hour or more. My boyfriend loved it too!

This is a small gallery that I would guess has no more than fifty or so pieces, but that was not the source of my disappointment. I suppose what surprised me most was the lewd artwork that lacked any real artistic value. I'm not sure...More

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