Many of Vancouver’s best art galleries specialize in works by Canada’s First Nations artists. You’ll find fine pieces by these aboriginal sculptors, painters, and carvers at the Douglas Reynolds Gallery on South Granville Street, Hill’s Native Art in Gastown, and Coastal Peoples Fine Arts Gallery, which has locations in both Gastown and Yaletown.
For other contemporary works, check out South Granville’s “Gallery Row,” whose dozen or so denizens include the Bau-Xi Gallery, Marion Scott Gallery, and Elissa Cristall Gallery.
Vancouver’s newest gallery district is The Flats, around Great Northern Way, east of Main Street. This emerging arts neighborhood is home to the Equinox Gallery, the Monte Clark Gallery, and several more avant garde art spaces.
