Bau-Xi Gallery

Lonely Planet review

One of the long-established galleries responsible for the city's artistic renaissance in recent years, Bau-xi – pronounced 'bo-she' – showcases the best in local artists and generally has prices to match its exalted position. The main gallery selection changes monthly and the focus is usually on original paintings – although prints, drawings and sculpture are also added to the mix on occasion.

Look out for works by favored Vancouver contemporary painters like Jack Shadbolt, who is one of Canada's most collectible modern artists.
