The Campbell River Art Gallery’s permanent collection tells the story of collecting practices and donations received since our beginnings in 1994.

This three part group exhibition aims to explore the ethics of taking care. Taking care within and outside the field of art professions, prioritizing care for the self and others, and the fatigue that results from enduring and educating under difficult circumstances. The aim of the exhibition is to create a space of safety and knowledge, where people feel welcome to share their experiences and connect with others around issues pertinent to mental and physical well being.
Protocols have been put in place to ensure the safety of our visitors and staff. These include:
Mandatory masks in all shared, public spaces
Occupancy limits to support physical distancing
Staff and visitor self-screening prior to entering
Hand sanitizing stations
Floor markers and signage
