Featured Events and Exhibits

Gabriola Tlak series-Hidden India poster

Come Join Us for “Telling Gabriolan Stories” Talk Series

The third talk of Gabriola Museum’s well attended “Telling Gabriolan Stories” series will feature Gabriola photographers and travelers Steve Struthers and Alison Douglas’ photo-journey through colourful and remote villages in India. Many islanders have enjoyed Steve and Alison’s travel talks about their treks to Antarctica, New Guinea, Burma and China’s Yunnan Province – always spiced with a liberal dose of humour.

The event is at 7pm, April 21 at the Rollo Center (a change of venue from previous talks). Admission is by donation.
