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.
We invite local artists to showcase art. Interested artists you can find more information here:
Our unconventional art gallery encompasses most of the inn- from the art filled garden room, the meandering hallways, to sculptures nestled amongst our edible gardens.
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.
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

“West Coast Ecoscapes”
Inspiring audiences, authors and ecology world leaders, Nancyanne Cowell’s latest collection of evocative abstract paintings, focuses on innocence with nature and suspending time. She has an endless fascination with the serene beauty of our vigorous living ecostystems on the West Coast. “I am painting at a time when technology, our culture and our physical world are changing at rapid speed. When I am creating, I am reflection on the interconnectedness of all life, at all levels. The vibrant whisper of our collective life.” This evocative exhibit is romantic and captures the spiritual quality of nature and love. Nancyanne’s work is now collected and she is more conmitted than ever to painting West Coast ecoscapes that have a strong Canadian cultural influence.
