Gabriola Arts Council (GAC) respectfully acknowledges that the land on which we live and create is the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation whose presence here reaches back to time immemorial. GAC respects and affirms the inherent rights and title of Snuneymuxw First Nation.
We endeavour to honour Coast Salish land and its treaties by strengthening our relationship and responsibilities to them. We are grateful to Snuneymuxw First Nation, who continue to share their knowledge about the history of the lands and water and their relations to them. We believe that the Arts can contribute to the healing and decolonizing journey we all share together and commit to honouring Indigenous self-determination, sovereignty and resurgence.
You’ve found a place to immerse yourself in the arts of Gabriola, DeCourcy, and Mudge Islands. You can search the website by artist name, studio number (from Gabriola’s Studio Tour), or categories such as painting, sculpture, glass, etc.
Some of the work is available for sale through this website, and other work can only be obtained through direct contact with the artist. Each artist page will allow you to contact them, ask questions, make an appointment to visit their studio, book their band for your event, or simply tell them you enjoyed their page. You will also discover other online sites where you can find their work.
Relax, grab a tea, or a glass of wine, and enjoy the arts on Gabriola.
Keep coming back to discover more, as artists will be refreshing their work on a regular basis.
