Sharan Nyander 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 craftspeople.
Sharan welcomes local artists to showcase their art at Sooke Harbour Harbour House. Interested artists 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.
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
