Big News! The Inuit Gallery of Vancouver is excited to announce we are moving. But don’t worry, we’re not going far. In June 2021 we will be taking up residence just across the harbour in an exciting new neighbourhood in North Vancouver known as the Shipyards District. It is home to Lonsdale Quay Market, the Polygon Gallery for contemporary art and the new North Vancouver Museum and Archives.
We are moving into a new space just across the street from the harbourside Londsdale Quay Market with easy access to public transit. This beautiful new, high-ceiling space will showcase your favourite artists’ work in a light-filled setting. We remain committed to presenting exceptional Inuit, First Nations and Canadian art and we continue to offer exquisite collections of jewellery, sculpture and graphics. We look forward to welcoming you to our new space!
The area also boasts great restaurants (many with views of Vancouver Harbour) and cafes, the vibrant Shipyards area with its shops, restaurants, and on summer weekends the Night Market with local craftspeople and live music. There is also a burgeoning brewery district for the craft beer lover, the Lonsdale Quay Market with boutique food vendors and shops, the summer Saturday Farmers’ Market, and three hotels.
If you are planning a vacation to Vancouver make sure you put North Vancouver on your itinerary. It is easy to get to us from Vancouver by a scenic 12 minute Seabus harbour cruise, leaving Waterfront Station every 15 minutes, or by car via the Lions Gate Bridge. There is an underground parkade in our building with an entrance off Rogers Ave. The harbour is home to a working drydock and often hosts international yachts and the occasional tallship. North Vancouver is also the gateway to many stunning natural attractions such as the Capillano Suspension Bridge and Cliff Walk, Grouse Mountain, Lighthouse Park, and nature trails such as the Lynn Valley Trail, or the oceanside North Shore Spirit Trail, a nearby walking path where you may spot seals, dolphins, otters and other wildlife.
We gratefully acknowledge that the Inuit Gallery is located on the traditional, ancestral and unceded land of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
