Riverway Gallery

The Riverway Gallery can be reached by car, however to fully capture the true experience we suggest that you park your car on Mansfield Drive off of Cliffe Avenue, and enjoy a short leisurely stroll south along the Courtenay Riverway.

Riverway Gallery - Comox Valley Artisans - Courtenay, BC

Against a backdrop of breathtaking views, an ever- changing scene of tide lines, ocean vistas, and warm summer breezes evolve throughout the year into scenes of rolling snow capped mountains and cool winter gales. The water and sky host a vast array of bird life that includes soaring eagles, seasonal trumpeter swans, herons, sandpipers, mallards, and gulls as well as curious otters and marine life. Once you’ve experienced some of the beauty and inspiration that the Comox Valley has to offer, you’ll have even more appreciation for the inspirations of the artists, featured in the Riverway Gallery.

On your walk, the gallery is hard to miss. You’ll be captivated by the sandblasted glass deck panels which have been customized and perfectly detailed to compliment the surrounding landscape. 

Once inside the Riverway Gallery you’ll be surrounded by the soothing sounds of local music and the exceptional art work of over 30 Vancouver Island artists. These works of art are perfectly displayed amongst driftwood, river rock and other coastal features, which combine to create a warm and colorful west coast atmosphere.

Attention to detail and quality workmanship are evident throughout the Riverway Gallery. The highly detailed water colours of wildlife painter Judi Wild are perfectly enshrined in old growth fir frames. Custom sandblasted glass designs are meticulously handcrafted by Crawford Studios. Whether you’re looking for a small gift from the west coast, an addition to your personal collection,  or a large scale art commission or installation, the Riverway Gallery has something for everyone.

To make your trip to the Riverway Gallery complete, be sure to visit the adjacent studio of glass artist Paul Crawford. There you can view current commissions in sandblasted glass, his works in progress, or perhaps commission your own piece of custom designed sandblasted art. Whatever your reason for visiting the Riverway Gallery you will take with you a true West Coast experience as well as the thrill of discovering one of the Comox Valley’s hidden treasures.
