Thousands of Visitors enjoy the art on Moss Street
25th Annual Artists Paint-in on Moss Street in Pictures.
If you visit Victoria in July this is an event worth taking time to visit.
Victoria is fortunate to be the chosen destination for many artists. The styles, ages and offerings cross a broad spectrum and there is literally something for everyone.
Moss Street has been the home of the annual artists paint-in for the past 25 years. On July 21st 2012, sponsored by TD and in association with the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria http://aggv.ca/, the paint-in celebrated a quarter century of artists displaying their work, working on new creations and engaging with the public.
Packed with locals and tourists the people who live on Moss Street are trapped in their homes and gardens as an abundance of art and artists set up stations - 155 of them in total.
Famous, professional and emerging artisans line the sidewalks on both sides as the crowds of young and old enjoy the spectacle. This is a definite "must do" and is Vancouver Island's larget outdoor art event.
Art enriches peoples lives in so many ways. This event encourages and provides opportunty for engagement and stimulation of creativity for all.
