A BIG VISION FOR COWICHAN VALLEY

Our Mission is to promote and establish a public art gallery in the Cowichan Valley.


Our non-profit “Friends of the Cowichan Valley Public Art Gallery Society” intends to bring a purpose-built art gallery building to the Cowichan Valley to host ongoing international, national (85% of planned content) and local art exhibitions (15% of planned content) and associated programming currently not available.

The building will be built to “A” level standards that have the correct environmental controls required to bring to the valley world class historical and contemporary art exhibitions this area is currently unable to host.

With cultural tourism a proven economic driver, this gallery is expected to bring to the Cowichan Valley the standard 7 to 1 cultural tourism spin off.   In other words, for each dollar spent on the gallery, seven dollars is expected to return to the community.

We are a team of very dedicated volunteers, intent on raising awareness and funding in order to realize this project.
