  • 這個藝術畫廊是加拿大第五大藝術畫廊。它靠近英國哥倫比亞大學市中心校園。它收集了大約11,000件藝術品。然而,畫廊的一些部分可能關閉以用於重新裝配工作。建築本身是一個老法院房子建於1905年。建築是值得仔細看看。所以,如果你看不到所有的藝術作品,你仍然可以在法院周圍漫步,欣賞建築。 
  • Only interesting is the animation of Japan on the second floor. I am a lonely grave. Sing with lyrics and dancing girl's grave is beautiful, interesting, heh.

  • I visited it twice (in October, when there was the Picasso exhibition too, and in December) and I always found it really interesting, with different types of exhibitions of modern art paintings, photo...  more »

  • Probably wasnt a great day for the gallery when me and my partner went there. they had just two floors with 2 artists being exposed. very simple. the other floors were closed. The money wasnt worth it.
  • Great accessible gallery for Modern Art. The gallery is nice and features multiple mediums. Exhibits change often. They also have fantastic after hours events called Fuse which feature DJs, performances in the gallery space. Well worth a visit. They also have a great assortment of kids and family programming too.
  • When all four floors are filled with exhibits, it is an inspiring place to visit for aspiring or even practicing artists. Also lots of good events - FUSE evening is great for the young adults (and young at heart seniors) and classical music fans can enjoy free for members noon hour concerts on selected Fridays. Talks on exhibits. Art rental. A useful arts venue for Metro Vancouver.
  • What a huge disappointment and let down. I had no idea the art gallery is basically empty and they are charging $18 per person This collection doesn't compare at all to the UBC Museum of Anthropology or the Royal BC Museum in Victoria. I'm sad to say I will never set foot in this gallery or be a supporter again. $18 is a huge rip off to see a handful of pieces. So regret going. I wish i could give Zero stars.
  • When I visited this small gem of a museum, each floor was dedicated to a particular artist. Picasso on the ground level, a photographer on the second, and the innovative Bharti Kher. Because each artist gets space, there's room to see a wide variety of their work. And the stairway features a huge graphic work by Barbara Kruger. With a good gift shop and great location near many restaurants, VAG is a good place to spend a day.
