It is with great sadness that I am announcing the permanent closure of ViewPoint art Gallery on January 29, 2022. It has been a really tough struggle to operate a business that relies so heavily on tourism during a pandemic, through forest fires and mudslides. We have been cut off for too long from tourism and it is unsustainable to continue operation. In addition to the lack of tourism dollars, people have changed their shopping habits with some afraid to go out and others shopping online direct.

I have enjoyed supporting and mentoring our local artists, raising money through the Gallery for local charities, hosting free events such as artist demonstrations, curating exhibitions (which featured several talented local artists) and creating newsletters to enlighten readers on new artists, artist’s techniques and events.

Just a few more shopping days left and one last Exhibition to enjoy: Kootenay Critters. A playful collection of paintings highlighting a few of the animals found in the Kootenays created by me – aimed to put a smile on your face! The Collection is paired with some whimsical sculptural pieces created by artist Rabia.

Take Care,
