YELLOWHOUSE ART CENTRE
We would like to acknowledge that we are on shared, unceded and asserted traditional territories of Penelakut, Lamalcha, Hwitslum and any other Hul’qumi’num speaking peoples as well as ceded territories of Tswsassen First Nations and any others who hold rights and responsibilities in and around what is now known as Galiano island. We are very thankful to be able to live, work, love and learn in their traditional territories.
Centrally located within a short walking distance from the Sturdies Bay Ferry Terminal, Yellowhouse Art Centre is a public venue for the island community and visitors. It is a platform for free artistic expression, a makery as well as a contemporary art gallery. Our goal is to help inspire and facilitate creativity in our community and beyond. The centre is currently offering programs like Artist in Residency Program, ongoing art classes for all ages (please see programs and calendar) as well as various workshops around art, environment and culture. We curate monthly themed group or solo exhibitions, events, retreats and private art therapy sessions. We also carry limited art supplies and a small selection of artwork by local artists and artisans.
The Yellowhouse was built in 1946 by a local resident Nick Nichols. Since then it has been a home studio for a number of locally and internationally known artists such as Claude Latour, Bara Fallows, Elisabeth Hopkins, John Wincup and more… Following in their footsteps, the Yellowhouse has become an art centre founded in July 2017 and registered as a not for profit society in February 2019. We continue to evolve... Be sure to check us out regularly and please support us by becoming a member and/or donating!
