When visiting downtown Vancouver, be sure to experience this art gallery. Even if you aren't interested in seeing the exhibits, they have a wonderful gift shop in the lobby. Merchandise from current and past exhibits, local art, books, etc can be found here.

We just happened to be in Vancouver during this exhibit’s opening weekend (Feb 3, 2018). The exhibit was amazing! Don’t skip the smaller rooms off to the sides of the exhibit for videos on the artist’s process (summed up with “wow”!) and other background that...More

Had half an hour between appointments, thought I'd drop by for a quick look-see. At $24, this is clearly not that kind of place. So, check the website, see what's on, and plan to spend a while. For people in a hurry, like me, enjoy...More

I must admit I don’t know a lot about art, but it’s made easy with the information offered by the gallery with their app and tours. I learned a lot and my significant other truly enjoyed herself.
