In the Galleries

Our Art Galleries

Welcome to the Rotary Centre for the Arts' captivating world of galleries, where creativity knows no bounds. Step into a realm where imagination flourishes, and artistic expressions from across the Okanagan, British Columbia, Canada, and beyond converge to create a tapestry of inspiration. 

Discover a Mosaic of Artistry 

Embark on a journey through our diverse range of gallery spaces, carefully curated to ignite your senses. With both indoor and outdoor exhibits, you'll find yourself immersed in a symphony of colors, forms, and stories that breathe life into each brushstroke and sculpture. 

A Tapestry of Local and Global Talent 

At the heart of our galleries is a celebration of artistic voices from the Okanagan and British Columbia. We take pride in providing a platform for artists to share their visions, dreams, and perspectives. From serene landscapes that capture the essence of the region to thought-provoking installations that challenge the boundaries of tradition, our galleries showcase the vibrant tapestry of talent that thrives in our community. 

Nurturing Every Artistic Journey 

Diversity is the cornerstone of our collection. Our galleries are a reflection of the continuum of creativity, where artists at every stage of their journey find their rightful place. Whether it's the raw passion of an amateur's brushstrokes, the emerging brilliance of up-and-coming talent, the refined expressions of the semi-professional, or the masterful strokes of seasoned professionals, our galleries provide a canvas for all to shine. 

A Collaborative Tapestry 

Our exhibitions are not only a celebration of individual artistry but also a testament to the power of collaboration. We join hands with esteemed artist collectives and renowned institutions like the University of British Columbia – Okanagan, Studio 9 School for the Arts, the Ponderosa Spinners Guild, and the Thursday Group. Together, we weave a rich narrative that transcends boundaries and unites the artistic community. 
 
The RCA is also the home of multiple studios where individuals and groups of artists create, curate, and display work. Visit the Alternator Centre, ARTSCO, Ponderosa Fibre Arts Guild, Potter’s Addict, Brandy Masch, and Cool Arts. 

Unveiling New Horizons 

Prepare to be captivated by the unexpected. While rooted in our local and national identity, we also set our sights on the global stage. Our galleries occasionally feature international artists whose works transport you to new horizons, bridging cultures and fostering cross-cultural dialogues through the universal language of art. 

Join Us in Celebration 

The Rotary Centre for the Arts is more than a venue; it's a canvas where stories come alive, where colours dance, and where creativity reigns supreme. Join us in celebrating the ever-evolving world of art, where every stroke and sculpture is a testament to the boundless human spirit.
