Welcome 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.

We invite you to come into the gallery which is located in the North Peace Cultural Centre, Fort St John at the intersection of 100th Street and 100th Avenue to view unique, one-of-a-kind art pieces.

In addition to works by Gallery artists, January will see some engaging artwork by local students. In November gallery manager Lisa MacLean did two workshops on Modern Art with grade 4-9 students at Freedom Thinkers Education, a local independent school in Baldonnel. The students worked together very hard and enjoyed their experience of doing so with a different perspective and appreciation. On January 18, School District #60 gifted students will be building their versions of the very humorous Rube Goldberg Machines in the gallery and adjoining Multipurpose Room. These devices are named after the Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Rube Goldberg who depicted wacky, convoluted inventions to perform simple and mundane tasks in his cartoons.
