about us

h squared gallery began as a back alley gallery formed in the studio of Canadian landscape painter Tara Higgins. In 2019, we made the move to this beautiful corner location in historic downtown Fernie, B.C.

h squared is not your typical gallery; we showcase unique emerging artists who offer something different and captivating. Every one of our exhibitors have been carefully curated by Tara Higgins and are considered for their talents in their chosen medium. At h squared gallery we're proud to represent printmakers, fibre artists, oil painters, sculptors, ceramic artists and so many more wonderful makers!

Fast forward to 2022 and we now represent over 20 artists, artisans & makers from all over Canada. As a team we collaborate year round hosting shows from our second ave home. Thanks for supporting us and Canadian emerging art!

We aim to evolve your interiors, taste, and experience of art. Our mission is to make your visitors heads turn and your heart sing. 

We’re in it to support our fellow artists and makers, deliver thoughtful works of art and challenge the atypical.
