May 23 – June 2, 2024

A celebrated annual event at the Kootenay Gallery of Art is the West Kootenay Camera Club Photo Salon, which will take place this year from May 23 to June 2, the latter date to coincide with Castlegar’s SunFest. Photographers from around the West Kootenays participate, with subject matter ranging from landscape to portrait, from super-realism to abstract—something for everyone to enjoy!

At the same time, visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the lovely gallery grounds, which includes a butterfly garden comprised of native shrubs and flowers. As well, recently installed are a polished concrete bench under the apple tree, and a gazebo behind the gallery for those who are looking for a quiet spot for reflection, to read, chat, or soak in the sun. Feel free to drop on by to see both the Photo Salon exhibit and spend some time in our garden!

Kootenay Gallery of Art Announces Exhibit Premiere of Grand National Delights Quilt and Fibre Arts Show

The Kootenay Gallery is pleased to announce that the gallery has been chosen to host the opening show for the tour of this year’s Grand National Delights Quilt and Fibre Arts Show. The exhibit will take place from June 8 to July 28, with an opening reception to take place on June 8 at 5 pm. All are welcome.

The Exhibition Statement from the Grand National website states: “ Every one of us has pleasures in our lives. What delights you? What makes you happy, joyous and cheerful? What lifts your heart? We asked the fibre artists of Canada to share their ‘Delights’ with us.

This juried exhibition will consist of the works of 35-40 Canadian professional fibre artists from across Canada, each expressing a particular delight that has great meaning to them, resulting in a diverse range of materials, techniques, ideas, concepts, and cheerful thoughts to get us all back on the path to living, having fun and enjoying the pleasures of life once again.”

The gallery is also planning on mounting two or more quilting / fibre arts workshops that will take place during the show dates. For more details regarding these workshops please visit here for more information. Dates and times to be announced.
