The seaside town of Sidney on Vancouver Island is renowned not only for its breathtaking beauty but also for the many parks, waterfront walkways, beaches, locals and business owners who call this gem home. In amongst unique shops, eateries, and other one-of-a-kind boutiques along the waterfront, you will find the Peninsula Gallery.
Not only does the Gallery showcase quality sculptures and paintings in a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere, it is also a retail gallery where visitors can purchase pieces they have fallen in love with. While guests will find a wide array of mediums used by the artists, a large number are original acrylic and oil paintings, wood and soapstone, as well as sculptures in bronze. Prices for works are in line with other galleries with the exception being works that have been, or requested to be, personally framed at the Peninsula Gallery.
The Gallery is also happy to create custom framing to enhance and protect your art piece. The Gallery’s framing specialist will help you choose from their extensive selection of frames and materials.
The Peninsula Gallery is very conveniently located via multiple means of transport. It is close to Victoria International Airport as well as B.C. Ferry’s Schwartz Bay and Sidney/Anacortes terminals.
