A Gallery to Visit in Victoria- Dales Gallery Presents Island Artisans

Twenty members of The Island Artisans Association have their work displayed for sale at Dales Gallery at 537 Fisgard Street in the heart of Victoria's Chinatown. It's a wonderful location right across the Street from the venerable Don Mee's restaurant and next door to Fan Tan Gallery. What an outing for anyone in town!
The Steering Committee has done a fantastic job setting up the huge display of work in a lovely space that dates back to the early days of the city. There's even a mysterious circa 1800s revolver that was found tucked in the walls during a renovation. With more rambunctious times far behind, the gallery showcases gleaming glass, funky metal sculptures, luscious feltworks, richly coloured and beautifully crafted pottery, jewelry and yes... polymer clay creations!
We had an Opening Celebration last night and happily sipped wine and delighted in each others creativity.  We welcomed passers-by including one lady who strolled in, filled a big plastic cup with beer and wandered back to the street to continue her sojourn in the city... perhaps she prefers 2D work.

The Gallery has a Facebook Page.
The Gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday.
We'll be here for a good time but not a long time,
 the show closes on August 31st.
