The historic Royal Hotel in Chilliwack has started a new art exhibition titled “Art on Main Street” at the Royal Hotel.

Occupying the ground level windows of the hotel, the art will be accessible and visible for all to see as they wander down Main Street.

The series opened this month with images from local photographer, Garth White filling the windows.

The artists and window displays will change monthly and will feature the work of local artists in a wide variety of styles and materials.

It’s an alternative and opportune space for emerging artists to display their work, with the simultaneous goals of making art more accessible to the general public, and to promote artistic creativity and vibrancy in downtown Chilliwack.

“We love local art and are happy to provide a unique venue for artists of all ages. It’s also a great opportunity for both hotel guests and locals to take in the art at their leisure while walking down Main Street,” said Royal Hotel GM Leonard Wiens.
