Art Display Program

Gallery display at Delbrook Community Recreation Centre

The NVRC's Art Display Program offers opportunities for local artists to showcase their work.  There are three main galleries:

The North Vancouver Recreation and Culture Art Display Program is designed to encourage emerging artists, solo and groups, to exhibit their artwork within public facilities.  Preference is given to North Shore based artists, yet all artists are encouraged to apply. Our goals are to:

  • Encourage the pursuit of lifelong learning
  • Create opportunity for artist to connect with their community
  • Promote cultural awareness and dialogue
  • Showcase the wealth of creative talent in North Vancouver

North Vancouver Recreation and Culture Facility Art Display Opportunities are located at four facilities throughout North Vancouver: Delbrook Community Recreation Centre, Parkgate Community Centre, Ron Andrews Recreation Centre and Centennial Theatre.  

NVRC will be overseeing the program which is free of charge.  The work will be adjudicated by the NVRC Cultural Services Staff and selected artists will be notified.  Selected displaying artists will be directly responsible for any purchasing inquiries and sales.  For more information, artists are welcome to email 

Artists are welcome to apply using the Application Form and/or email information to include your name, address, up to 5 images (max size 1 mb .jpg format) of your artwork, or link to an online portfolio and/or website that includes examples of your work. Please indicate where you have previously exhibited.

The next Intake deadline is August 5, 2022 for displaying artwork between September and January; those interested will need to apply. For more information email

art display at Delbrook by artist Gary Squire

Gary Squire

September 16, 2022 - February 13, 2023

Tranquility is the essence of Gary Squire’s art. He is renowned for his astonishingly beautiful mountain scenes.  

Gary Squire has lived in Vancouver for over 40 years, so not surprisingly many of his photos represent this amazing city and surrounding area. Gary uses his imagination and artistic skills to create stunning photo art, with the application of advanced editing processes. Perhaps because he is also a watercolour artist, his photo editing gives rise to an exquisite painterly finish.  His work is either printed on bamboo paper, or as canvas wraps.
