(Art Gallery of Greater Victoria)

If you’re looking for a safe, bubble-friendly experience while still getting the chance to enjoy some beautiful and local works of art, look no further!

In light of recent times, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria is now offering private engagement tours.

On Thursday mornings from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., small groups of all ages are now welcome to safely engage in guided tours of the newest exhibitions.

The Gallery will be all yours as you and your group explore the connection that art has to ourselves, our environment, and our cultures, and will be closed to the public during these times to make the tours possible.

Tours will be limited to 10 people and are $20, which includes admission for each visitor. 

Even better, we’ve partnered with the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria to give away a private engagement tour to one lucky winner – plus two adult admission passes! Contest details are below.

The AGGV’s annual Winter Small Works Show & Sale is now on display at Massey Sales Gallery, as well as online, and runs until January 31st, 2021.

The show features a diverse range of local original fine art for your own home – or for a special gift, just in time for the holidays!

All works are available for browsing on the AGGV website, and are available for online purchase as well as in-person purchase (appointments recommended).

Speaking of holidays, in case you have some shopping left to do, the AGGV Gallery Shop has an amazing selection of gifts!

Local handmade pottery, jewelry, woodcraft, glass art, textiles, books, exhibition catalogues, magazines, posters, art cards, home goods, stationery, puzzles, children’s games and toys, and a beautiful selection of holiday ornaments and decorations – basically something for everyone on your list.

This is the year to shop locally and safely while supporting local artists and the AGGV.

The Gallery Shop works with local artists and artisans to source many of the products available, and there is no admission fee to access the shop.

Our Victoria Buzz hosts will also be stopping by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria on Tuesday, November 17th to give you a sneak peek of what you can expect there this holiday season!

Art Gallery of Greater Victoria has extensive COVID-19 safety protocols in place to protect employees and visitors of the gallery, and you can take a look at their full safety plan here.
