There are many art galleries on Salt Spring including an artists’ co-operative. Between them these galleries feature everything from local Salt Spring and BC artists to historical art and works from The Group of Seven. Each gallery has its specialty and they are a joy to visit.

Artisan Studios

Salt Spring Island has studios of every kind imaginable - from wine, cheese, ale and bakeries to fine art, pottery, jewelry and a wide range of art and craft-forms. You can see many artisans at the Salt Spring Saturday Market, but taking a tour to see the artists in their studios is a whole different experience! Visit lush gardens, folksy barns, bohemian studios - and see art in motion.

We have fibre artists, weavers, potters and sculptors, metalworkers, wood turners and furniture makers, artists who paint in every medium from watercolour to encaustic, photographers, glass-workers, jewellers, leather-workers, wearable art (clothing - both new and upcycled), stonemasons, mixed media artists and of course musicians, writers and poets.
