Situated in downtown Revelstoke, Art First! showcases the creativity of artists in a large variety of media including paintings, photography, sculpture, textiles, jewellery and furniture. During the Culture Tour artists will be providing demonstrations in the Gallery. The Revelstoke Visual Arts Centre will be hosting its Midsummer Affordable Art Show with all works priced at under $300. All work will be available for immediate sale.

Come and visit Nicola McGarry’s working studio nestled in the woods where outside and inside. Refreshments will be available so you can sit on the deck and enjoy the view so you can experience the landscapes that inspire the paintings. Begbie Studios is a small studio/gallery space located in a heritage home in the Southside of Revelstoke. The newly opened studio was established to regularly exhibit the work of select artists including: Tracy Macfarlane, Krista Stovel, Janet Pearson, Suzanne Spisani, Carmen Segger, Tina Lindegaard, Jennifer Hedge, Riley Miljan and Lucie Bause. Keeping a focus on local art, owner/artist Tina Lindegaard invites you to drop in and enjoy an intimate and casual viewing experience.
