Seymour Art Gallery
Seymour Art Gallery, established 1985, is a non-profit public gallery in the heart of Deep Cove, North Vancouver. We are working to maintain an active art gallery that fosters excellence and promotes interest in the arts. We welcome more than 25,000 visitors annually to our gallery, Gallery Shop, and special events. Along with a busy exhibition schedule, we present performance events — including music, artist demonstrations, interactive art-making, and events for children. Seymour Art Gallery establishes a high standard in our balanced program of visual and performing arts. The gallery also plays an educational role, by organizing programs for schools and activities for the general public in conjunction with our exhibitions.
