There is a little gem that shares the same name as my favorite mountain, The Bluerock Gallery in Black Diamond, AB. The gallery is a fantastic spot that represents more than 100 regional artists. They carry everything from paintings to sculpture and jewelry to books. The attention to detail is amazing. The selection and diversity will have you coming back for more.
Owners, Karen Gimbel & Chris Weingarth have recently renovated the space on main street and they did a great job! When my husband was a child, the space was inhabited by Charlie Woo’s store. Apparently it was part shoe repair, part thrift store, but mostly fun; it was a favorite stop for some pre-Mother’s Day shopping for kids with their saved pennies. It has come a long way from those days!
Karen & her staff work hard to provide a little bit of everything to look at and the selection is always changing. If you’re ever in the neighbourhood, I encourage you to take the time to have a look! There are plenty of lovely little shops on the street like Stirr: Adventures in Food that you’ll love. Take a trip over to Turner Valley to the famous Chuckwagon for the best burger or breakfast in the country!
I’m proud to be represented by a great gallery & proud to be a member of this community. My husband’s family has been in the area for over 100 years and I’m just starting to find my way in it all. When I’m driving west back home from Calgary and I come over the hill, my eyes are drawn to find my favorite mountain, Bluerock. It is a comforting sight and so is the atmosphere at its namesake, the Bluerock Gallery.
