  • A full gallery devoted to the works of Roy Henry Vickers right on Tofino's main street. Design is of a longhouse with original works in the front room and reproductions and lesser works in a backroom ...  more »
  • Great gallery of Roy Vickers work in downtown Tofino. Like a long house inside. The gallery is free. There is a gift shop in the back. Don't miss it! 
  • Local artist, amazing art. Available prints for purchase. No charge to visit. A must visit if you enjoy First Nations Art and if you haven't seen it before. Very beautiful
