Creating spaces with rich texture, & culture.

Our goal is to provide a world class venue for emerging and established artists to showcase their talents. Our focus is on local artists from British Columbia and we are proud to share their work with an audience of worldwide guests.

We have partnered with Peninsula Gallery, who keeps our lobby updated with fresh artwork from some of the island’s best artists. Founded in 1986, Peninsula gallery has provided Brentwood Bay Resort with their guidance and expertise and without them our lobby would not be the way it is today.

Peninsula gallery is located just 15 minutes north of the resort in beautiful waterfront town of Sidney, and we recommend check them out on your trip to the Saanich Peninsula .

Art By Di

Canadian artist Di was born in Vancouver in 1984 and graduated from Simon Fraser University with a Major in Archaeology. As a self-taught artist her style evolved through the exploration of using bright solid colours and flowing lines to reduce the endless detail of life into calming, simplistic beauty.

Di’s body of work includes acrylic paintings and digital illustration. Her art has been shown in galleries on Bowen Island, Vancouver, Victoria and in private collections across North America. Recently she created three murals for the BC Children’s Hospital and her 2021 solo exhibition ‘Art for Sea to Sky’ raised funds and awareness for conservation initiatives in Howe Sound. Di works from her home studio on Bowen Island where she is often found exploring land and sea with her husband, daughter and two dogs. Current works can be found at the Brentwood Bay Resort, Van Dop Gallery, Catching Stars Gallery or online at www.artbydi.ca

Kathryn Amisson

Kathryn Amisson has spent much of her over 40 years career portraying the beauty of our Canadian west coast. Well known for her pastels depicting the stunning beaches and rolling surf along the Pacific Rim National Park near Tofino, BC, she today works in acrylic on canvas. Expanding her boundaries she has since taken aim at the prairie landscape. Both her love of the west coast and her praire roots have instilled in her a passion for wide open spaces.

From waves to clouds Kathryn skillfully captures the allure and movement found in these wondrous and mysterious elements. Using brush, palette knife, tissue paper and acrylic mediums the resulting texture provides a unique interpretation of a constantly changing scene.

Kathryn devotes her full time to the accomplishment of her much loved profession. Her work has been purchased by individuals and collectors worldwide and her efforts in aiding and contributing to her chosen group of charities is well acknowledged and recognized. Kathryn and her husband, Graeme Roberts, reside in Brentwood Bay.

Randy Wachtin

Randy Wachtin is an emerging landscape photographic artist who lives near the ocean on Vancouver Island, a settler on the unceded territory of the ləḱwəŋən peoples. 

His unique, monochromatic infrared photographic style incorporating long exposures, reveals an ethereal beauty of his muse; the Cascadia biodiverse region of the Pacific Northwest.

Wachtin is a fourth generation graphic arts professional with roots in letterpress printing. He is a self-taught photographer and printmaker. His infrared long exposure photography is an art form that utilises light from the infrared spectrum to create beautiful, surreal images. It captures more than the ordinary human eye can see, allowing the photographer to create unique, dreamlike images of the land and sky.  

He continues to self develop his craft as he processes each image and  personally prints archival carbon pigment prints on museum grade cotton rag papers in his home studio.  In addition, he outsources specialised printing on sheer matte ChromaLuxe aluminium panels that amplifies the ethereal properties of infrared photography.  

Results are truly stunning, with an otherworldly atmosphere and an unmistakable, captivating beauty.
