Pinawa Art Gallery
Discover another Secret of Pinawa as you explore this hidden gem.
The Pinawa Art Gallery is an initiative of Pinawa Art 211 Inc., a local not-for-profit art group founded in 1989 by artists of the town wishing to develop and share their talents.
The art group of today has expanded its reaches to include artists from numerous municipalities in and around the area. This active little group, consists of many award winning artists, promotes art education and always has a community project in the works. Between Art Shows, sales, demonstrations and classes, the artists find the time and talents to keep this gallery fresh, stimulating, and engaging.
Dropping by the Gallery, you may be fortunate enough to find an artist at work, like Iris carving, Metro sculpting, or Anita painting, but you will definitely discover all the exceptional talents and outstanding artwork on display. From pottery to photography, sculpture, paintings, jewellery, glass, and carvings, the gallery has something for everyone’s taste and pocketbook.
The Art Gallery is still located in the W.B.Lewis Business Centre, although as of February 1, 2018 we will have moved around the corner, into our new room in the centre. The Gallery and Art Exploration Centre, operates solely as a combined effort of the volunteer member’s time and efforts, and the W. B. Lewis Board, who have generously donated this room for a fixed gallery and work space. This co-operation allows Pinawa area residents and visitors the pleasurable opportunity of viewing and owning some of the latest works of regional artists, as well as excellent art instruction in many different forms of art expression, in one charming location.
The diversity and merit of the artwork displayed is a reflection of the commitment to art exploration, education and development that Pinawa Art 211 Inc. and its members endeavor to accomplish.
Today the Gallery flourishes in its new home reflecting the diversity and excellence of its members who strive to create wonder and amazement for their visitors. Drop by regularly and examine the works of the artists as they bend the rules in an attempt to capture the inner meaning of the subject for this month’s provocative “Theme Wall” and “Discover another Secret of Pinawa”.
