Gage Gallery Arts Collective

The Gage Gallery is a beautiful gem of a gallery right in the heart of Oak Bay Avenue. We are a collective of 20 contemporary local artists dedicated to creating an inspiring venue to promote, exhibit and sell our diverse work. With ever-changing solo and group shows mounted every three weeks, there is always something new and exciting to discover in our main gallery.
Our group is eclectic with art styles ranging from vivid abstract and representational paintings to West coast landscape impressions, driftwood sculptures, whimsical drawings and more.
In the Small Works Gallery at the back of the venue you will find small paintings and sculptures, colourful birds, prints and art cards at very affordable prices. Special “Gage” bonus: There is always an artist present to chat with you about art, the weather or life – if you are so inclined. Come and visit! We look forward to seeing you at the Gage, 2031 Oak Bay Avenue!
