The Most Diverse Gallery of Canadian Talent

Open seven days a week

Monday – Saturday: 10 AM - 4 PM

Sundays: 10 AM - 3 PM  


On Granville Island, our gallery displays contemporary, living Canadian artists. All artwork is priced by the artists themselves. We cut out the commercial gallery mark-up, allowing you to discover national talent at a fraction of the price. Art doesn't need to be intimidating or unavailable! Let's work together to bring a little more beauty into the world. We've filled the gallery with original paintings, no giclees or prints.  Here you will find the spirit of Canadian painters with no factory-facsimiles. And, for the foreseeable future, parking on Granville Island is free. 

Since 1941: A History Worth Honouring


Our non-profit was established by members of the Group of Seven more than 75 years ago. Growing ever since, our gallery now represents 2,800 of the best Canadian artists.  Our founder, Lawren Harris, saw Canada as a huge nation missing a crucial piece of culture - we needed artists to unite!   It is no small undertaking to unify a nation of creatives. To this end, The Federation of Canadian Artists presents a new exhibition every two weeks. Each exhibition is juried by a panel of leading artists for technical and artistic excellence. With our network of incredible artists displayed in Vancouver, British Columbia, we are humbled to participate in this incredible legacy.
