“Throughout the years, some of B.C.’s most prominent artists have joined us at Painters at Painter’s, creating a brain trust of art and creativity unparalleled in Canadian art today,” says Christine Fleming, general manager of Painter’s Lodge. “One of the largest artist gatherings to take place nationally each year, it’s an incredible opportunity for art enthusiasts to celebrate and learn from some of B.C.’s best, in one of the province’s most beautiful settings.”

More than 90 pieces of original art from the 33 artists will be displayed in a unique collection over the weekend. In addition, permanent exhibits at Painter’s feature prints and giclées of the artists’ original work in many of the guestrooms.

Various visitor packages are available, including Saturday and Sunday day passes, walk-in passes and a weekend package.
