What We Do


To become a critical space for thinking, producing and sharing knowledge about contemporary art and the issues it addresses within society.


  • To present contemporary art exhibitions by professional artists;
  • To encourage those engaged in the practice of contemporary art;
  • To interpret and promote an interest in contemporary art by providing an educational space designed to advance the public’s knowledge of, and participation in artistic endeavours and art appreciation;
  • And to acquire, maintain and exhibit a permanent collection of art for the public.


The Campbell River Art Gallery exhibits the work of professional visual and media artists from across Canada in our Main Gallery and Satellite Gallery. Our specific focus is on supporting artistic projects from under-represented positions within contemporary art practice.

The Gallery’s commitment to education is enacted through our public programming and outreach activities: workshops for adults and youth; school and community gallery tours (followed by an art activity); artist in the school programs, Super Saturday free art-making sessions, and other special events.
