Once again dropped into this interesting little space during a recent sunday walk and found it full of handmade Christmas gifts and ornaments for sale. Several docents on hand ready to tell you about the artists and their objects. A pleasant seasonal interlude.

I walk along the West Vancouver Seawall each Wednesday morning with friends, and usually park near the Ferry Building. Frequently, I visit the gallery because they're always featuring local artists.

This rathe ancient one room art gallery holds regularly changing shows that feature mainly local artists, often displaying local landscapes that may appeal to visitors. Admission is free so you are risking nothing by taking a look as part of a waterfront stroll

The place is not very large - it takes less than 15 minutes to see everything, but they feature exhibits from local artists- usually painting but some sculpture. Charming building right on the waters edge and fun for a quick look through every few months....More
