We have such great bookstores on Salt Spring Island! Volume 2 is found next to the Coast Guard Dock, where the floatplanes arrive. Black Sheep Books (formerly Sabine's Bookstore) is at the entrance to Grace Point Square. Salt Spring Books and Watermark Books are on McPhillips Avenue, across from each other. All with a little different focus, they promote the works of our amazingly talented novelists and poets.
So many art galleries to feed our souls! In Grace Point Square, be inspired by Gallery 8, Steffich Fine Art Gallery, and Starfish Gallery. On Mouat's Boardwalk, discover the esteemed Pegasus Canadian Art Gallery. Wander a little farther up McPhillips Ave, past the two bookstores, and enjoy the Salt Spring Gallery of Fine Art. Also, ArtSpring's gallery and lobby showcase artistic presentations throughout the year.
Coffee houses also showcase local artists: Cafe Talia, TJ Beans, Salt Spring Roasting Co., Barb's Buns, Rendezvous Cafe (by Salt Spring Marina).
Restaurants, too, showcase artists "oeuvres": Bocados Bistro, Harbour House Hotel, Calvin's Bistro, Marketplace Cafe...an amazingly diverse and talented artistic flair is available on this Island!
Pick up a copy of the Studio Tour map at the Chamber, in Ganges Village. Enjoy the many studios open to you...discover the talent right under your nose!
Live music venues keep our vibrant musicians talents front and centre: Treehouse Cafe, Harbour House Hotel, Moby's...catch them when they play! A "wow"....
A very rich cultural life is enjoyed by Islanders: theatre, films, concerts...it's all here!
