Art Gallery of Greater Victoria hosts TD Art Gallery Paint-In
In 2010, more than 35,000 people attended the family-friendly event. Activities include painting, pottery, sculpting, soapstone carving, papier-mache making and performance games. There's a tinge of green during the Paint-In this year, too. Reusable, foldable water bottles will be sold for a donation of $10. The AGGV bottle reads: GREEN is the new black -- Thanks for making ART sustainable in Victoria. Water bottle fill-up stations will be located along Moss Street, and bottled H20 will not be sold. Other green initiatives include composting and recycling bins. A food and beverage garden, located in the gallery parking lot, will be open from 11-9 during the TD Art Gallery Paint-In. Latin band KUMBIA will play dance favorites from 5-9 PM.
Indoors, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria will be open from 10-6 (by donation). Exhibitions currently showing include A Brush with War: Military Art from Korea to Afghanistan; War and Disaster in Japanese Prints, The Further Adventures of GIRL and the ongoing Emily Carr: On The Edge of Nowhere.
