• salt spring island's premier art gallery
    welcome to

Steffich Fine Art Steffich Fine Art, Salt Spring Island was established in 1992 by owner Matt Steffich. Over the last twenty-three years, the gallery has become an island institution. We have hosted shows for nationally noted artists Norval Morrisseau, Jack Shadbolt, Abraham Anghik Ruben and Robert Bateman.

Featuring an incredibly talented and diverse group of artists from Salt Spring Island and across Canada, Steffich Fine Art has carefully curated a unique cross section of world class talent. From photography to sculpture, painting to ceramics, we have something for every artistic taste.

Matt Steffich, who is also a professional musician, has a huge collection of art throughout music history. Here you will find the work of legendary rock artist Bob Masse, the father of the bold, colorful art nouveau style that is now synonymous with music legends like Jimi Hendrix, The Who and Salt Spring’s own, Valdy. Over the years, Matt has carefully collected gig posters and ticket stubs from the legendary Fillmore West. Mounted together, these pieces of rock and art history become a spectacular art piece with their own unique appeal. For more on the Steffich rock art collection head over to our Rock & Roll Site.

We are also proud to be the sole Canadian representative of kinetic wind sculptor Lyman Whitaker. For years, Lyman has developed an incredible array of wind driven sculptures that are as captivating as they are dynamic. These pieces influenced by nature, yet crafted from bronze are perfect companions for styles ranging from modern to rustic. They look as at home in front of an office building as they do in an intimate garden. For the full line of wind sculptures go to our Wind Sculpture web site.

Enjoy our site and drop us a line any time. We love art as much as you do.
