Galleries & Studios

This area is an art-lovers paradise.

In Qualicum Beach, discover art galleries including The Old School House Arts Centre, where local work is featured and interesting exhibitions occur often. In Parksville, the McMillan Arts Centre also showcases the work of local artists. The Salish Sea Market in Bowser offers artwork, jewelry, artisan food, and more - all sourced from artists located on the Salish Sea. You can even contribute a few brush strokes to a collaborative painting by a famous local artist who goes by the name of Monk.

Meet local artists like Larry Aguilar and watch them work in their studios

There's nothing quite like encountering an artist on his or her own home turf, cup of tea in one hand, paintbrush or chisel in the other. Self-guided studio tours of the region allow one to drop in unexpectedly on dozens of home-based studios and galleries. Check out each creator's latest work and maybe find that special piece and memory of your adventure.
