Yes...Salt Spring is famous as an artists community!

Ganges, Salt Spring Island
Salt Spring is famed for its artists community.

Visiting for the day? Make sure to enjoy the gallery walk in Ganges Village: Gallery 8 and Steffich Fine Art in Grace Point Square; Pegasus Gallery of Canadian Art, in "Old Mouat's"; Jill Louise Campbell Gallery across from Treehouse Cafe, in "new Mouat's"; Salt Spring Gallery of Fine Art on McPhillips, near the Library; the galleries at ArtSpring, corner of McPhillips and Jackson; plus, ArtCraft in Mahon Hall from mid-June to end of September.

Here for longer? Pick up the Studio Tour Map at the Visitors Centre in Ganges Village. Discover the varied artists studios throughout the Island.

Pay attention to the walls of the places you dine or coffee in: Auntie Pesto's, Barb's Bakery, Cafe Talia, Roasting Company, Rock Salt Cafe, Fernwood Cafe...individual artists showcase in these venues.

It is often inspiring to live in a community energized by creative thought: the artistic gift. Every two years, there is the Salt Spring National Art Prize (SSNAP), and this October will showcase this amazing event.
