‘Tis the season for giving, and the gift of art is something everyone can enjoy!

When you visit the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria this holiday season, you’re not only supporting local artists, but you’ll also have the chance to find the perfect gift in the Gallery Shop or give the gift of membership.

If you’re on the hunt for a one-of-a kind gift, look no further!

The AGGV’s annual Winter Small Works Show & Sale is on now until January 29th, 2022 at the Massey Sales Gallery. 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!

Aside from hangable art, the Gallery Shop has a great selection of gifts for everyone on your ‘nice’ list. With everything from local handmade pottery, jewelry, woodcraft, glass art, textiles, books, exhibition catalogues, magazines, posters, art cards, home goods, stationery to puzzles, children’s games and toys and a beautiful selection of holiday ornaments and decorations, there’s a little something for everyone.

The Shop is located at the AGGV entrance, with no entrance fee required!
