ArtSpring is a community arts centre on Salt Spring Island, BC – one of the Southern Gulf Islands off of Canada’s west coast. The building is an 11,800 square-foot, two-level, heavy timber structure, boasting a 5,200-square-foot exhibition/multi-purpose area and a 6,600-square-foot, 259-seat theatre. Artists Birgit and Robert Bateman officially opened the building in April 1999.
ArtSpring has over 300 events each year. Our activities are primarily associated with rentals by local professionals, semi-professionals, amateurs, school groups, guilds, and visual artists. Our curated season – ArtSpring Presents – features events that are chosen to complement, enhance, and diversify what is already available through local arts organizations.
