Bau-Xi Gallery opened in 1965 in Vancouver, BC to create a showcase for the many emerging and established Canadian artists in need of a gallery on the West Coast. BAU-XI (boe she) translates to “great gift”. Bau-Xi Gallery remains the oldest contemporary gallery in Vancouver.
The Gallery has been a member of the Art Dealers Association of Canada since the early 1970s, and in Vancouver, a founding member of the South Granville Gallery Association. Over the years, the iconic Vancouver gallery has expanded to include Foster/White Gallery in Seattle, Bau-Xi Gallery in Toronto, and Bau-Xi Photo, which is one of the few strictly photography galleries in Toronto.
Since its inception, Bau-Xi Gallery has been recognized as one of Canada’s most highly regarded art galleries, with a reputation founded on adherence to the highest standards in quality of art and service to clients.
