The always popular TD Art Gallery Paint-In (also more commonly known as the Moss Street Paint-In) happens on July 21, 2012. There are a number of events and activities happening through out the day to keep you and your family busy.
The Paint-In features over 150 (up from just over 100 last year) professionals and includes emerging artists from Victoria and our surrounding areas. The street turns into one big art studio as artists display their work on Moss Street between Fort Street and Dallas Road.
If you are planning to attend, you will have the opportunity to meet with a large number of artists and maybe even learn a thing or two about their work and techniques. From 5.00pm to 9.00pm, a local Victoria Latin band, Kumbia, will be performing.
New for this year is the totally FREE Paint In The Square, to celebrate the Paint-In’s 25th anniversary, and also the City of Victoria’s 150 Celebrations. The Art Gallery will invade the downtown core for five days leading up to the Paint-In on Moss Street, with festivities in Centennial Square. There will be artists doing live paintings, art activities for children and youth, as well as food vendors and the City of Victoria’s lunchtime concerts – a great break for downtown office workers.
Over 200 volunteers and artists make this free community event possible by spending more than 3,800 hours in the lead up to the event. Be sure to get out to Moss Street and show your support for our amazingly talented local artists.
