About This Park

The Dawson Creek Art Gallery is housed in a renovated annex of a prairie elevator, situated in a municipal park (NAR Park) in the center of Dawson Creek. The Art Gallery was moved into the elevator in 1983 and in 1984 won the Heritage of Canada Foundation Award of Merit. The gallery is owned by the City of Dawson Creek and is operated by the South Peace Art Society. The Art Society has a membership of over 100 practicing artists in Dawson Creek and surrounding area.

The Gallery uses a ramp system along the walls of the annex which accommodates 200 linear feet of hanging space. The main elevator facility attached to the annex is accessed through outside doors and is open for self-guided tours during the summer and upon request. This part of the complex has information panels and didactic material relating to the operation of a prairie grain elevator.
