The Art of Discovering Gabriola's Amazing Talent...

Gabriola enjoys a spectacularly high proportion of professional artists - ranking sixth per capita in Canada! Every day is a celebration of creativity in this community of more than 200 writers, actors, painters, dancers, musicians and potters. The Gabriola Arts Council - the biggest little arts council in BC - ensures visitors have plenty of opportunity to engage creatively, primarily through three annual events...the Isle of the Arts Festival, Gabriola Theatre Festival and the Thanksgiving Studio Tour.


Our Artists welcome visitors to their studios.

If the Yellow Flag is Flying, the artist's studio is open and welcoming visitors.
