South Granville has the highest concentration of fine art galleries in Vancouver, its legacy as gallery row is cemented as it continues to thrive a half-century since its founding.
Several new galleries have moved into the area since the first ArtWalk, adding to SGGA’s reputation as the only area in the city where one can tour the full breadth of artwork available in Vancouver.
You’ll find a diverse range of art including Canadian and International conceptual, European modernism and old masters, historical and emerging Canadian art including photography as well as two galleries devoted to First Nations and Inuit work.
The special events organized for this one-day-only affair draw art enthusiasts and collectors alike out to admire works by seasoned masters and to discover emerging young talents.
