Owner description: Wander through the gardens and galleries to enjoy this Dutch artist's bronze sculptures.
Reviewed 15 April 2014

I have never found this artist's work very interesting, frankly, but he is very good at what he does. That said, I can attest that major collections of sculpture in what I might call "second-tier" collections--places like the Politchnica Valenciana in Spain, which has an astounding collection of outdoor sculpture--have a lot of works of about the same nature and calibre. If you are a dedicated modern sculpture fan (by which I don't mean conceptually edgy installation art with, say, a political point to make), then you might find this interesting. It's somewhat reminiscent of, say, Henry Moore.

World-class art, friendly service and tour. We admired a great variaty in mediums. Sculptures, paintings, medals etc.

A must to visit.!!!

We were so impressed by this art studio and sculpture gardens! On arrival, we were welcomed inside by the wife of Geert Maas who gave us a personal tour and provided information on his widely varied artwork. The artist himself came out to talk to us and we were able to express how wonderful we found his paintings, sculptures and pieces both large and small......this charming fellow is very talented in so many mediums! We bought a couple of booklets, were happy to give a donation, and then strolled around the grounds enjoying the many large sculptures on the Maas property. We cannot recommend this attraction highly enough, it's just outstanding! Check it out, you'll thank us.

We are not ones who ‘do’ museums or galleries but this artists' exhibits are certainly worth a visit. They are exceptional and we even saw the one the beach exhibit actually in a park in Kelowna. The bronzes are beautiful and unusual and the setting is beautiful. We spoke to his wife who talked about their journey from the Netherlands to Canada and it was so interesting and brave. Wish we could afford to buy a piece! Definitely worth a visit.

Wherever we travel we always hit the art galleries and museums but w weren't expecting much on our trip through the Okanagan valley in British Columbia. The AAA guide mentioned the Geert Maas Gardens and Gallery was close to the highway, so we thought we'd drop by. It was a great decision: the art is world-class, and very affordable. We're from New York, where artists often charge much more from their studios. Go if you have at least a half hour to stroll around. We visited for an hour and will be back on our next trip. Leave a donation - or buy something (we did).
