The Comox Valley celebrates its many artists throughout the regional district at numerous venues and galleries. With abundant resources for inspiration, it is no wonder why so many artists make the Valley their home. Visit any of Comox Valley area galleries and artist studios and you may even find your own inspiration through taking one of the many artist workshops. There is an artist in everyone, come and discover yours.
I-Hos Gallery is proud to share First Nations culture with all who stop to visit online and in person. It sits near the K’omoks Big House, facing the estuary, to celebrate the legacy of Indigenous lives throughout the region. In Downtown Courtenay, Comox Valley Art Gallery is the contemporary public art gallery, linking the Comox Valley to the broader world of contemporary art practice. In Comox, the volunteer-run Pearl Ellis Gallery offers an ever-changing exhibit of local artists.
