Experience art and culture at the Pitt Meadows Art Gallery
The Pitt Meadows Art Gallery, located at 12492 Harris Road, first opened on November 18, 2017.
The creation of an art gallery within the City provides an opportunity for artists and the community to engage, connect, and network with each other. The new space brings attention to local art and creates new opportunities for art, artists, artist groups and residents in the community.
Members of the community are given the opportunity to showcase their work, including artists, art groups, youth, seniors and members of the Katzie First Nation through a series of rotating exhibitions.
Exhibits include work by both local and regional artists, and works may include drawings, paintings, multi-media, fibre, textile, jewelry, ceramic art and photography. Sculptural works and metal art are also showcased.
