Event Description

Paint In The Square (Presented by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria)

Monday July-Friday July 20

11am – 4:00pm daily

Centennial Square, Victoria, British Columbia

It’s a big anniversary year: Vancouver Island’s largest outdoor visual art event, the TD Art Gallery Paint-In is celebrating its 25th Anniversary, and our beautiful city is marking its 150th. As part of the City of Victoria’s 150 Celebrations, the Art Gallery will storm the Downtown Core, with five days of Paint-In festivities in Centennial Square as we build towards our main event on Moss Street on the Saturday. Key features of this satellite event will be artists working in their studios, art-making activities for children and youth, a children’s art exhibition, and opportunities to access information about the Gallery and its upcoming programs. There will also be food vendors and the City of Victoria’s lunchtime concerts to make the event a great lunch break stop for downtown workers. So come on down and Paint In The Square! Generous support has been provided by the City of Victoria to bring you this *NEW* event, which is free and open to the public.

All activities will culminate in the main event, the TD Art Gallery Paint-In on Saturday July 21. Commonly known as the “Moss Street Paint-In”, this event is organized by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria as a community outreach initiative featuring 150 invited professional and emerging artists from Victoria and surrounding areas. Artists take their studios to the street to display and produce their work on Moss Street between Fort Street and Dallas Road. The Paint-In is a free and fun-filled community-based art awareness and education event that sees up to 35,000 visitors. Visitors to the event have the opportunity to meet with an enormous variety of artists and learn about their work and techniques.
