Peace Gallery NorthWelcome to Peace Gallery North. We are honoured to represent many of the Peace Region’s finest artists and artisans, both established and emerging. Peace Gallery North’s collection of art, in a broad range of media, showcases the dynamic and innovative. The artists we represent continually offer the highest quality of work while exploring fresh ideas and ways of expressing themselves. Join us every month for a new exhibition, with both group and solo shows.

 

In addition to paintings in oil, acrylic, mixed media and pastel work, we carry watercolours by a number of local artists and a large selection of hand-pulled prints. This region has a great number of printmakers specializing in linocuts, etchings and monoprints as well as collographs and solar prints.

 

You can discover a wide selection of pottery by artisans from across British Columbia, along with work in wood, metal and glass, and our wide range of art cards featuring photographs of our beautiful Peace Region, and wonderful antler carvings by an accomplished local artist.
