From time to time I visit our art gallery and am quite impressed by some of the exhibitions. There have been some very good artists displayed here. Worth seeing and the gift shop is very interesting with many local artists wares for sale.

As an artist myself, this was right up my ally. Beautiful facility, great displays, beautiful artwork. Great way to spend an hour or more. My boyfriend loved it too!

This is a small gallery that I would guess has no more than fifty or so pieces, but that was not the source of my disappointment. I suppose what surprised me most was the lewd artwork that lacked any real artistic value. I'm not sure if it was there for shock value or if it was because they were large... More

Interesting display but a very small gallery. Seems to showcase one artist only at a time. Nice small museum store with some nice things.

I went here with a group of people this summer, and while we were baffled by the exhibits, we did enjoy them. The gallery store was almost as entertaining as the exhibits, containing hundreds of extremely cool (and expensive) odds and ends, stocking stuffers, and fancy ties.

It isn't a huge space, but the gallery is really nice. It's free on thursdays to enter, and there were three small exhibits. One in particular was called back to the future, and showed old pictures of Kamloops with current pictures of the same spaces. It was really interesting to see how many buildings have been repurposed and have stood... More

I enjoy regular trips to the Kamloops Art Gallery. I have been privileged to visit many of the best art museums around the world and while the KAG is relatively small, they consistently bring in excellent shows. Gallery staff are knowledgeable and friendly. They also have excellent events such as the artist talks they organized this past spring. It is... More

We just arrived to Kamloops and browsing around downtown when we saw the sign for Free Admission Thursday and stopped by the gallery. It is a cute multi-purpose building with the public library on the other side. The current exhibit was really interesting as I am into mixed media art. The cool part is also the photo gallery displayed which... More

I love the fact they offer a free gallery showing on Thursdays. I wouldn't be able to attend during university without that deal!! Amazing staff and such a beautiful building.... it's truly a dream to have this place in Kamloops!
