Local Colour 2009 Event

I will be participating in a spontaneous celebration of the arts in Downtown Victoria this Saturday, September 26th!

Organized by the Downtown Victoria Business Association, the Local Colour event will have numerous artists stationed around the downtown core, creating artwork based on their surroundings. Some artists will be painting landscapes or drawing portraits of people. Not surprisingly, I will be focusing more on the Victoria's urban/architectural landscape, but instead of painting an historical or charismatic building this weekend, I will be working on a piece of the much-discussed Johnson Street Bridge (aka the Blue Bridge).

I will be stationed on the east side of the Johnson Street Bridge (corner of Wharf and Johnson Street) from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm on Saturday. A full list of the participating artists, as well as their approximate locations and time frames, will be posted at the Legacy Art Gallery & Cafe, located at 630 Yates Street. Please feel free to stop by and say hello!

The DVBA plans to host an exhibition and sale of the artwork created during this event at some point in mid-October. More details about this exhibit will be posted when they become available.
