Surprising gallery for the size of Kamloops. Great architure, located in the downtown, close to many hotels and resturants. The Gallery features a variety of art work, local, Canadian and international and has a great gift shop featuring made by hand products. The children's program looks fabulous, lucky for those who can take advantage! And it's free on Thursday through a sponsorship with BCLC. I highly recommend a visit, but check the website to see whats on as sometimes the main galleries are closed for re-installation. I loved the CUBE which exhibits the work of artists living and working in the region. Friendly staff and located in a multi-purpose building with the Kamloops Library, so took advantage and sent some email as well. Good for Kamloops!

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2012

Was really looking forward to seeing something unique and high end and just didn't meet those expectations. It was in some disarray as they were doing some changes which defiantly took away from it.

Very sorry to hear you were disappointed. Alas, we were between shows when you visited and in spite of our efforts to do as quick a turnaround as possible, we sadly missed the opportunity to showcase our finest to you. Hopefully you'll be out this way again and you can then enjoy all the Kamloops Art Gallery offers.
