Delta Art Trail
1. South Delta Art Trail
Start your tour in any of Delta’s three communities: Ladner, Tsawwassen or North Delta.
In Ladner, begin at the intersection of Chisholm and Delta Streets, where you’ll find everything you need to craft your own creations at Ladner Village Arts and Crafts. Feel inspired but don’t know where to start? Check out their classes for adults and kids while you’re there.
Stroll one block up Delta Street to Camille’s Boutique and Gallery, which showcases work by local artists like Michael Abraham, Jan Rankin, and Kathy Swift. Further along, at Muddy River Landing, you’ll find jewelry, pottery, and works by local artists like Gary Nay and Linda Jones. It’s worth a stop to see Nay’s wall mural just up the road, opposite Stir Coffee House.
2. Catch the latest show at Gallery 1710
From Ladner, head out on Arthur Drive towards Tsawwassen. Turn right at 34B Avenue down a tree-lined country road to reach Country Lane Gallery and Frame Shop, which features the work of owner Kim Maree Scott. Kim is known for her miniature watercolours of Delta dikes and waterways, which often feature views of Mount Baker in the background.
Continue on to Gallery 1710 on 56th Street next to the South Delta Recreation Centre, where South Delta Artists’ Guild members host a series of shows throughout the year, and run workshops and weekly life-drawing sessions. As the gallery is volunteer-run, check their website for gallery opening hours and days.
3. Fuel up with lunch and some sublime inspiration
At this point, you’re probably ready to refuel. Just across the road, you can grab a coffee and one of the delicious soups, salads or sandwiches made in-house at The Roasted Bean, or travel a little further up 56th Avenue to Brown’s Social House.
Top off your visit with a trip to Sublime Art Materials in the Tsawwassen Town Centre mall. Inside the mall you’ll often find a display of work by local artists, and the knowledgeable staff at Sublime will help you find just the right tool, paper, or paint to inspire your own inner Picasso!
4. North Delta Watershed Gallery
The Watershed Art Gallery in the lobby of the North Delta Recreation Centre has been showcasing work by local artists and artisans for more than a decade. The gallery is a favourite with art lovers looking for an original piece to hang on their walls, or one-of-a kind gifts, jewelry, pottery, glasswork and more. Watch their website for news about events, art classes, and artisan markets. The gallery is
volunteer-run, so be sure to check their website for opening hours.
Looking for a snack or a meal after your visit? Within a roughly 10-minute walk from the gallery, you’ll find coffee and baked treats at Cravings Coffee, poutine, wings, and hot sandwiches at Delta Lion Pub, and takeout options at Manchu and Masala and Apollo Pizza.
5. Visit 120th Street to explore a world of flavour
Want to expand your gastronomic horizons a little further? On 120th Street, you can explore an entire world of flavour with dine-in and takeout options that range from locally sourced gastropub fare at One20 Public House to local favourites like Zaika House Pizza and Eatery, Akari Japanese Restaurant, Ari Ari Korean Chicken and the Greek Village Restaurant.
The choices for Indian cuisine are vast, ranging from the sophistication of Tasty Indian Bistro, to the more casual – but no less popular – atmosphere of Jagga Sweets, Mirch Masala, and Tandoori Flame. Whatever your mood, 120th has a restaurant to match!
