Current Exhibition


Young Visions 2016

It’s that time of year when the Kootenay Gallery opens its doors to the students and staff of School District 20. This show is a tribute to the creativity and ingenuity of our youth and the skill and expertise of their art teachers.

A full schedule of exhibitions for the year is available here. We hope to see you often this year.
