Give the gift of art for the holidays at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (CONTEST)


If you’re looking for the perfect gift that anyone can enjoy this holiday season, look no further than the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria!

Visiting the art gallery this holiday season means 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.

You’ll also find that the AGGV’s annual Winter Small Works Show and Sale is underway in the Massey Sales Gallery—the show features a diverse range of original fine art, from 70 local artists, for your own home or for a special gift.

The Winter Small Works Show and Sale runs from now until January 27th, 2024.

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

Plus, we’ve partnered with AGGV to give one lucky winner some help with their holiday shopping—a $100 gift card to the Gallery Shop! You’ll find those contest details below.

Over the holiday season, visitors to the Gallery can enjoy the current exhibitions on display, including: Kali Spitzer: Bodies of, Bodies Within, Tender Touch, Unexpected: The Life and Art of Sophie Pemberton, Canadian Artist, and In The Flesh: The Nude in Art, Past and Present opening on December 9th.
