Gibsons Public Art Gallery

British Columbia

A delightful little gallery with a firm focus on showcasing Sunshine Coast works, from painting to sculpture and fiber art. The diverse roster of shows changes every month – opening nights are a good time to meet creative Gibsonites – and this is also a great spot to buy locally produced artworks at reasonable prices. If you're here in August, check out the town's Art Stroll event, which includes this and other galleries and stores.
