Ferry Building Gallery now open!

The newly restored Ferry Building Gallery welcomes the public back into its unique and historic space.

The Ferry Building Gallery is a public community art gallery operated by the District of West Vancouver and is in the heart of Ambleside at Ambleside Landing. Situated in one of West Vancouver’s original buildings, the gallery serves as a hub for arts and culture. The gallery presents up to 14 exhibitions annually and promotes art education and appreciation through a wide range of events and programs, including participating in the annual Harmony Arts Festival, which attracts local and international visitors and artists. 

The Ferry Building Gallery acknowledges that its arts programming and operations take place in the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səl̓ílwətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) nations.

Our mandate

The Ferry Building Gallery enlivens, enriches, engages, informs, and educates our community by presenting a mix of juried and invitational exhibitions. 

The gallery is open and accessible to all and is a place for the community to experience and celebrate the arts. It supports the development of emerging and established artists from the North Shore, the Sea-to-Sky Corridor, and the Sunshine Coast. The gallery provides valuable, enriching artist-led experiences for the community by presenting exhibitions, lectures, tours and programs which reflect the cultural diversity of the North Shore.


The Ferry Building has been at the centre of life in West Vancouver for more than 100 years. From its beginning as a bustling ferry terminal to its present use as an art gallery, this heritage building has always been important to our community. Read more
