The Green Door Society and the Cowichan Public Art Gallery Society have now amalgamated to pursue their common dream of a purpose-built public art gallery serving Cowichan Valley residents, the Island and all who visit here.

A portion of the historic Green Door building will serve as our first physical gallery, with exciting exhibitions already being considered. The new society expects the gallery to have a strong impact on the community through exhibitions of local, Canadian and international art, adding to the cultural richness of the valley and making a valuable economic contribution as it attracts visitors from around the world.

CPAG’s Jock and Carmen Hildebrand attended the Duncan Farmer’s Market on a glorious sunny day (Sat. Aug. 28/2021) and chatted with vendors and members of the public to raise awareness of our project.
