The Gallery Experience

A visit to Motoko’s Fine Art Gallery is more than viewing art; it’s also an experience to remember. It’s about experiencing a restful interlude in a busy day; it’s about sitting in the garden and absorbing the natural surroundings; it’s about peacefully contemplating Motoko’s art; and it’s about meeting and getting to know Motoko.

Set on a hillside overlooking Farrington Cove in Pender Harbour, Motoko’s gallery features a garden, tucked against a cliff, that visitors are invited to enjoy. That cliff forms a natural amphitheatre, which served as a site for music concerts in the past.

Upon entering the gallery, one is immediately subsumed by an atmosphere of calm and tranquility. In the Japanese tradition of hospitality, Motoko and her staff welcome every visitor with a cup of tea. Cup in hand and surrounded by sophisticated but warm spaces featuring Motoko’s art, visitors are encouraged to take their time to soak in the art and the ambience.

“It makes me very happy when I see people enjoying being here,” explains Motoko. “I really like to welcome them into our garden and gallery and provide them with a day to remember.”

“An oasis of peace and tranquility”

“Your art and your gallery exude a love and joy that is infectious!” “Nurturing, inspirational…”

“Calm and serene work!”
