Exhibitions Worth Seeing is offering...
...to the ONLINE EXHIBITION VERSION of the Exhibitions Worth Seeing Newsletter.
Exhibitions Worth Seeing is here to support the galleries and artists of Vancouver Island. So to keep in step with these changing times, we're following exhibitions ONLINE and making our email newsletter FREE for anyone to subscribe!
Exhibitions Worth Seeing is your in-the-know art buddy, your conduit to the conversation about what is happening in art on Vancouver Island. Who’s who. Where they’re showing. And when and where you need to show up to take in all the arty goodness.
Let us OPEN YOUR EYES to art and be in-the-know
about art on Vancouver Island, without any of the work!
A project made by artists for artists
and the people who love them.
Keeping up with what’s going on in the galleries takes a lot of work.
The team at Exhibitions Worth Seeing follows the galleries on Vancouver Island for you, from Alert Bay to Victoria. We currently follow 40+ galleries, artist collectives and more.
- We subscribe to all the gallery newsletters.
- Follow all the gallery facebook pages.
- Look at all the gallery instagram posts.
- And receive all the press releases galleries send out and actually take the time to read them all.
All so that you don’t have to.
Then, we compile all of this information into one easy-to-read email that we send directly to your inbox the last Sunday of every month.
Super easy, right?
We’re your one-stop in-the-know art buddy who knows where all the good stuff is, which will save you the guesswork of figuring out which exhibitions are worth your time and energy - your most precious commodity!

Exhibitions Worth Seeing is artist-run.
Just like the artist-run centres and volunteer-run galleries exhibiting on the island, Exhibitions Worth Seeing is lead by an artist’s eyes.
Exhibitions Worth Seeing is curated.
Most community arts events listings list anything and everything art-related all in one place; exhibitions right alongside theatre and music and dance.
We ONLY list visual art exhibitions and art events. And we curate everything we list so that we’re only recommending the exhibitions that are really worth seeing.
Exhibitions Worth Seeing comes straight to you.
You don’t have to stumble upon a print copy of the latest exhibition guide, or subscribe to a bunch of gallery email newsletters, or follow the social media accounts of every single gallery you’re even slightly interested in. We do that all for you and then curate it down into our monthly exhibition lists.
And unlike most other exhibition guides…
Exhibitions Worth Seeing is not bought and paid for by the galleries.
Exhibitions Worth Seeing is curated with the arts community in mind - making sure that all the galleries, regardless of their marketing budget, or lack of one, are listed, as long they offer interesting and relevant art exhibitions and events in our communities.
