The third largest art gallery collection in British Columbia, the Burnaby Art Gallery has a varied exhibition program, and a collection policy favouring works on paper.

Appropriately, it is currently a good place to see original prints by First Nations artists. The recent donation of a group of prints from the Salish Weave Collection is on view until May 31, 2017. The Salish Weave Collection is a private collection of contemporary Coast Salish art that “weaves together the distinctive forms and designs of established and emerging artists.” Among artists collected by the donors are Andy Everson, Maynard Johnny Jr., lessLIE, Luke and John Marston, Chris Paul, Susan Point and Dylan Thomas.
