Arts & Culture

Immerse yourself in the region that continues to inspire hundreds of artists along the west coast of Vancouver Island. Spend time in one of the many art galleries and shops in Ucluelet showcasing local photography, paintings, drawings, carvings, glass art, weaving, tapestries, pottery, and jewellery.

The west coast is home to the Nuu-chah-nulth people. Their vibrant culture and traditional art is embodied in the work of legendary carvers, weavers, and painters. First Nations artworks can be viewed at numerous locations throughout Ucluelet and the neighbouring area.

Many informative books and stories explore the Pacific Rim and surrounding areas. Several established authors also originate from the area. You can find most of these books at our local galleries and book stores.

Here are some examples:
