Summer at Dales Gallery is OPEN!
Visit Dales Gallery in the heart of Victoria's Chinatown this summer and explore the work of over 40 members of The Island Artisans Association.
The Gallery is housed in a Old Victorian space that dates back to the early days of the city. If you ask we'll show you the mysterious circa 1800s revolver that was found tucked in the walls during a renovation.
With those rambunctious times far behind, the local artisans participating in the Summer at Dales Gallery present gleaming glass, funky metal sculptures, sparkling silver jewelry, luscious feltworks, richly coloured and beautifully crafted pottery, vivid and innovative polymer clay creations, and many more items to delight the eye in a celebration of form and function. The gallery is staffed by local artisans who are always happy to describe their techniques and processes.

Summer at Dales Gallery was very busy yesterday as 49 Island Artisans took time out from their Canada Day celebrations to drop their work off at the gallery. Here's the "before picture" of a very empty Gallery which rumbled with the sound of handcarts as boxes full of beautiful creations were delivered. If all goes well the gallery will open on the 3rd of July!
