The Kootenay Gallery continues to offer a surprising variety of shows, showcasing mature and emerging artists with free (!) openings, often supported with live music and lovely buffets, and interesting artist presentations. Their curator has an active and engaging mind!

Support the local artists and some wonderful art and practical items at the gift shop. Great for gifts for others and a 5 minute walk from the airport if your flight is delayed. Well worth dropping by.
