Open daily, even Sunday and Monday. Featuring over 150 pieces of artwork from artists all over the Thompson Nicola Regional District, there are so many great pieces to see. All of our galleries are stuffed to the brim.
Art Exposed gives the public a chance to view local artwork of many different types, including paintings, drawings, sculpture, jewellery, pottery, photography and more. TNRD artists submit up to two works of art each. All submitted works are displayed at the Kamloops Old Courthouse for the duration of the exhibit.
Art Exposed’s non-curated approach ensures that everyone – from emerging artists to established, and from youth to senior – can participate. For some, it will be the first time they publicly display their work. The emphasis is not on competition; Art Exposed offers community artists a chance to share their work in a professional setting, gain exposure and receive valuable feedback, taking their careers to the next level.
For COVID-19 Safety, no more than 4 attendees at any time, mask wearing mandatory: find full safety measures link here. To avoid peak times, we recommend visiting during the week, the artwork will also be available to be viewed online.
Now over 10 years old, the Kamloops Arts Council’s Art Exposed Regional Exhibition is a community-centred visual arts exhibit. Art Exposed is open to all residents of the TNRD, emerging to established. Artists are invited to submit artwork in any medium – 2D and 3D.

About Kamloops Courthouse Gallery
The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery is a non-profit, co-operative art gallery which was founded in 2007 by a small group of dedicated artists from the Kamloops area. Today, the Gallery and Gift Shop are managed by a growing group of artists offering a wide range of talents and skills.
The purpose of the gallery is to provide a venue for member artists to sell their work while offering the community an opportunity to experience different forms of visual and functional art. Our objectives are to provide continuing support for the co-op and its membership through the gift shop and by organizing artisan fairs in the Old Courthouse.
Another objective is to provide education by offering demonstrations and workshops for those interested in learning a new art form.
We are dedicated to creating an enriching and cultural experience for both residents and visitors of Kamloops, as well as the people of British Columbia. Culture, Art, Community and Prosperity all become a reality as a result of this initiative. We are located in the historic “Old Kamloops Courthouse” which we share with the Kamloops Community Arts Council and Arnica.
The Kamloops Courthouse Gallery Gift Shop boasts an unmatched selection of media and styles including pottery, jewelry, glass art, paintings, scupture and fibre art to suit the tastes of casual shoppers as well as serious collectors.
