Lookout Gallery

Regent College places great value on the arts, and in 1990, The Lookout Gallery was established as a place to demonstrate the significance and centrality of the visual arts.

Since its inception, the Lookout Gallery has proudly displayed paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, calligraphy, and many other media from exhibitors around the world. The Lookout Gallery’s multitude of solo and group exhibitions have come from as close to home as Vancouver and as far away as Australia and Russia.
