Since 1974 Canada House Gallery has been a destination for Canadian art in Banff. Representing over 50 painters, 20 sculptors, 3 jewellery designers plus Inuit art there's always something new and exciting to see. You'll receive a warm welcome from friendly and informative gallerists. If you don't see what you're looking for, let us know - we have many works tucked away in the back room. Everyone is welcome... come on in after hiking, skiing, cycling, horseback riding.... our art friends enjoy our gallery in their jeans, gortex and spandex!

Visited Canada House Gallery, featuring art themed mainly on nature and local animals. Fairly pricey work, but interesting on the whole.

Good mix of Canadian artists and different styles of art. We have ordered several pieces, and the gallery approached one of their artists for a specific piece on our request. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Love their demo days, where they have several artists in.

Although we were determined not to purchase anything this time, but merely to look (which is okay), we did end up spotting an older Dorset print that spoke to us. At least it was a small purchase. They have excellent variety and... More

I was particularly amazed by the excellent fused art pieces by Leslie Rowe-Israelson with jeweled accents. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable and the selection of fine art in paintings, sculptures and jewelry make this a "must see and purchase" on every trip.
