With a colourfully painted floral exterior and a large birch tree mural on the front of the building, the Kootenay Gallery invites you in to explore the diverse collection of rotating exhibits and the carefully selected gift shop items.
The gift shop carries items created by local artists from every artistic medium from large- scale paintings to beautiful hand-crafted jewelry. With a newly-adopted admission by donation policy, this gallery is a perfect place to bring your summer visitors.
The Kootenay Gallery is located adjacent to the Doukhobor Discovery Centre across from the Castlegar Airport. It is surrounded by a beautiful butterfly and xeriscape sculpture garden complete with picnic table and is the start of a series of trails that wind along the bluffs overlooking the Columbia River. This hidden gem is definitely worth a visit!
