We are the Isle of the Arts

Gabriola Island is a thriving artistic community, drawing artists, art lovers, and art supporters from all around the world. As the Isle of the Arts, we live in a world where cloudy paint strokes, glass stars, wooden creatures, and silver linings are with us in our day-to-day lives. We attract more artists to move here every year, and that’s resulted in Gabriola Island having the sixth highest concentration of artists in the workforce in Canada (Hills Strategies Report, 2011). Gabriola Island is also a gorgeous place, full of inspiring natural and artistic wonders. The people and businesses on this island work together to make it a satisfying and culturally rich place to live or visit.
