YELLOWHOUSE ART CENTRE
We would like to acknowledge that we make art on the shared, unceded and asserted traditional lands of Penelakut, Lamalcha, Hwitslum and any other Hul’qumi’num speaking peoples as well as the ceded territories of Tswsassen First Nation.
Located on Shxixnetun/Sturdies Bay, Yellowhouse Art Centre Society is a not-for-profit organization serving primarily Galiano Island and surrounding communities by offering year-round multidisciplinary arts programming. It facilitates ongoing art classes and various creative workshops for people of all ages and backgrounds, holds exhibitions, performances, events and an artist in residency program.
The Yellowhouse was built in 1946 by a local resident Nick Nichols on Coast Salish territories. Since then it has been a home studio for a number of local artists such as Claude Latour, Bara Fallows, Elisabeth Hopkins, John Wincup and more… Following their footsteps, the Yellowhouse has become an art centre founded in 2017 and it was registered as a BC Society in 2019.
*Yellowhouse is very grateful for the generous support of CRD Arts Commission.
