Visit our gallery to see the work of hundreds of Vancouver Island artists
Our gallery co-ordinator perfectly places the art throughout the hallways, which is one of the most wonderful aspects when visiting Sooke Harbour House, home to the art of more than 150 local artists and crafts people.
Our unique art gallery 'lives' throughout our resort and gardens. Pathways along the beach as well as incredible works in the hallways and entrances highlight the talent and discipline of a multitude of media. Our artists' works are highlighted in every suite and change as works are circulated and sold.
This region has fostered an incredible number of talented artists, and we exhibit exclusively the work of artists from Sooke, Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, Victoria, and the Lower Mainland. We carefully select work that reflects the ocean, surrounding rainforest, gardens and food, and that tie into the Sooke Harbour House philosophy of local, eclectic and sustainable.
Sooke Harbour House Gallery is open daily from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.This is an invitation to all who appreciate art - everyone is welcome to walk through and ask questions with our staff.
A word from a past guest:
We traveled to galleries all over British Columbia looking for art for our new home, and yours was the most interesting, with the most diverse selection of art.” – Guest from Calgary, Alberta

Joshua James Miller
Artist's emerging passion and bold style catapults career
Josh Miller, like many people, studied at University, found a career (in carpentry), and is a self-proclaimed “simple kind of guy”. Until last year; fate dealt a serious accident, preventing him from working. During his recovery, his teenage impulse (un-pursued interest to attend Emily Carr) revealed painting as more than a hobby. It was totally fulfilling. Inspired by his fiancé’s appreciation of fine art, he creates with bold colour (straight from the tube, no solvents like artists of the 1930’s) and uses only a pallet knife, with aspirations to be the next D Kooning. He feels by rejecting the standard art community expectations, the response to his work is growing and continues to seep through appreciating channels. His goal: to eventually show in London.
Josh Miller's work will be on display at Sooke Harbour House from October 1, 2014 unit November 25th, 2014.
Sooke Harbour House Gallery & Gift Shop is open daily from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.
Everyone is welcome to view the art.
Sooke Harbour House is at 1528 Whiffen Spit Road, Sooke, BC,
