Council Run Galleries

The Salt Spring Arts Council currently operates three annual exhibition/retail galleries, all housed in historic Mahon Hall, in downtown Ganges.

From June through September, the ArtCraft Gallery of Fine Art and Craft and the rotating Showcase Exhibits are on display. Outside the hall, ArtCraft is accompanied by a yearly exhibit of outdoor art installations, known as LandArt. In the three weeks leading up to Christmas each year, the hall is festively decorated for the WinterCraft Gallery. In the spring, the Salt Spring Arts Council organizes the Easter Art Show, a combination of gallery exhibitions, arts events, and special programming taking place at Mahon Hall.

Mahon Hall is often rented by local artists, artisans and Guilds in the spring, autumn and winter months for other exhibitions and craft fairs.
