This artist-run co-operative gallery has brought some of the best Yukon art to the world since it was founded ten years ago. All-original and all-Yukon, Yukon Artists at Work’s goal is to provide a venue for emerging and established artists. Artists get the chance to develop in a supportive community, and to grow their business skills to enter markets outside of the territory. From an original dozen members, YA@W now features the work of about 35 painters, potters, sculptors, photographers and fibre artists (and many other disciplines as well). All artists are juried into the co-op, ensuring the best Yukon art is represented. As part of the co-op, member artists take turns running the gallery... so you’ll always have a chance to meet a Yukon artist ‘in the flesh’ when you visit! The gallery is located just off Two-Mile Hill, easily accessible by car, public transit, or on foot.
Come down to Arts Underground to shop and browse through the galleries featuring artwork and crafts from Yukon Art Society members. Arts Underground has three gallery spaces, the Focus Gallery and Edge Gallery feature artwork from Yukon artists and the exhibits change monthly. The third gallery is the Hougen Heritage Gallery featuring historical exhibits displayed in partnership with Friends of Yukon Archives and MacBride Museum. Be sure to check out our Gallery Shop filled with Yukon art and crafts. Arts Underground also has fully stocked art supply store, if you feel an urge to create!
The Yukon Arts Centre Public Art Gallery is open year round and hosts ten to fourteen exhibitions a year. Concurrently, in the Community Gallery and Yukon Electrical Youth Gallery we have exhibitions featuring local and youth artists. We are committed to excellence in the visual arts and to bringing innovative exhibitions that explore the rich diversity of contemporary art from local, regional, national and international perspectives. Everyone is welcome to attend opening night receptions. Artists are often in attendance.
We are also happy to offer various types of Gallery Tours, Art Talks at the Old Fire Hall, a monthly Kids Kreate during the fall/winter and an Art Library at Arts Underground.
North End Gallery, in Whitehorse, Yukon, specializes in original paintings and prints by traditional and contemporary Yukon artists.

We also carry etchings, Inuit sculpture, pottery and ceramics, metal art, blown and fused glass, and wood creations. Many of our artisans work in mammoth ivory, moose antler, caribou antler, and sheep horn, creating everything from sculptures and carvings to pendants and earrings.
