All Islands’ Art Show


The All Islands' Art Show is an annual event held to showcase the visual artists of Haida Gwaii. The adjudicated show is held at the Haida Gwaii Museum and welcomes artists working in a variety of media. A Youth All Islands' Art Show is also held on a bi-annual basis. The next youth show will be held in 2018. Contact allislandartshow@gmail.com for more information.


The exhibit is on from March 2nd to March 31st 2018  and is open during the same opening hours as the Haida Gwaii Museum (click here for more info on opening hours).  It is located in the Temporary Exhibit room and admission to this exhibit is free (Please note that Museum entrance fees still apply for visiting the rest of the Museum). Check out the 2018 catalogue.
