I am always in awe when visiting Henry Roy Vickers Art Gallery in Tofino, and in fact consider it a main reason to visit here! The structure is stunning, the interior is quiet and reflective, the art is amazing, and the gift shop is well-stocked with knowledgeable staff. During this visit I was able to meet the Gallery Director, Dale Morrow, a lovely young lady who was a real pleasure to speak with. I recommend 100% that you visit here, and best of all the admission is free!

This is a must see Gallery when in Tofino. The setting of all the art in the Gallery evokes the feeling of a traditional Longhouse. The artwork is very interesting and beautiful. The pieces range in size, but all are fantastic. There is a gift shop where you can buy a variety of different sized and priced prints of much of the the galleries art and other items. I picked up a small laminate print titled “Chief’s Dream” which captured my imagination instantly and was a great price range and exactly what I was looking for. Definitely a must see when in Tofino.

My wife and I have the privilege of owning a number of Mr. Vickers' prints. His gallery is always worth a visit when in Tofino. Styled in a First Nations construction, the gallery is a quiet place of reflection while taking in the artwork. I appreciate the stories told with each piece of art that reveals the man behind the works.

When browsing the streets of Tofino we popped into the gallery and were blown away by the beautiful works of art by Roy Henry Vickers that were displayed in the sympathetically built wooden gallery. We could only afford some greeting cards showing some of the displayed paintings but they will go back to England and provide happy memories.

We really enjoyed touring the gallery. We had never seen his work in person. We wound up buying three prints and it took us quite a while to decide which ones to buy because they were all so lovely.

I'd heard of Roy Henry Vickers before my visit to Tofino but had never seen so much of his work in one place before. And it's beautiful. One of the finest examples of First Nations artists and there are many of his works to be seen here. Along with a well stocked shop so that you take away a piece of him with you. But it wasn't just the artwork that impressed - I was really moved by the words that he had written that accompanied each painting. There's a lovely book titled "Storyteller" that has many of his works with the words - it was too heavy for me to buy and take back. But, as soon as I got home I ordered a copy. It arrives today!! And I can't wait to open it up.
The Gallery, by the way, is free to enter. A must see place to go to.
