Kootenay Gallery of Art
Exhibitions; Giftshop; Education; Community
The Kootenay Gallery is a public art gallery serving the West Kootenay region where national and regional artists showcase their work. There will be two exhibitions featured during the Culture Tour. Stephen Foster, a Metis professor at UBCO, offers work critical of the historical and inaccurate presentation of First Nation culture by non-aboriginals such as American photographer Edward Curtis.
Also showing will be the work of students from the Digital Arts & New Media program at Selkirk College who create using a medium that complements Foster's photography. Workshops are offered for all ages to complement the calendar of exhibitions. The Gallery gift shop carries items created by local artists from every artistic medium from large-scale paintings to beautiful handcrafted jewellery.
