Much of Victoria's art can be enjoyed by taking a leisurely stroll through the downtown core.
Galleries display emerging and established Canadian artists in a variety of mediums, including original paintings, sculptures, glassworks, carvings and First Nations art.
Victoria is also home to BC’s largest public art gallery, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. Smaller art galleries in Victoria provide the opportunity to interact directly with the artist.
