A Little History

The Kelowna Art Gallery, originally housed in the Kelowna Centennial Museum, was founded in 1976 and incorporated as a not-for-profit charitable organization the following year.

The current building on Water St. was built by the City of Kelowna in 1996 and leased to the gallery. The new facility is just under 16,000 square feet and meets national state of the art climate-controlled storage and exhibition standards for places of this type.
