Situated on a slight rise that overlooks Ganges village and the harbour beyond, ArtSpring is a surprising find for such a small community.

The stunning west coast architecture de- sign of post and beam construction holds the Gulf Islands’ only dedicated centre for the arts. Whether taking in world-class performers in the 260-seat theatre or cutting-edge art exhibitions in the 5,200-square-foot gallery space, island residents and visitors have access to an amazing offering of experiences.

Since ArtSpring first opened at 100 Jackson Avenue in Ganges in 1999, it’s also been an active community centre hosting island craft guilds, school displays and performances, and films and forums for non-profit organizations.

For ArtSpring’s current events calendar, visit www.artspring.ca or check local entertainment listings.

Tickets to performances can be purchased at the box office, by calling 250-537-2102, or through the website at www.artspring.ca. Gallery and lobby exhibits are free.
