Open Doors To Art

“Open Doors to Art” is a new recurring program that I am running at your Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (AGGV). The intention of the series is to clear away inhibitions and help expand the public’s experiences with the art on display by offering everyone a memorable and engaging experience with the works.

Students Say Something at New Extreme

Every year, the AGGV’s New Extreme Program pairs local artists with groups of youths at schools in a unique art mentoring program. This year, with invaluable support from the RBC Emerging Artists Project, Lydia Beauregard, Raphael Divi, Kerri Flanagan and Cameron Kidd took on the challenge with amazing results that inspired both themselves and the groups of teens with whom they collaborated.
