Art Social March 11 – Guided AGGV Tour

Join us for a guided tour of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria’s current exhibits, from textiles to print-making and pottery. A great way to connect with other art lovers.

The tour will include lunch at the Fernwood Inn and a guided tour of the following exhibits:

Merimekko With Love: Explore the history of the iconic Finnish textile company and its effect on the designs and fashions of daily life. Bright colours and bold patterns from mid-century to modern day continue to inspire home and personal design.

A Study in Contrast: This exhibit compares the work of two very different and influential print-makers, Sybil Andrews and Gwenda Morgan, both of whom got their start at the Grosvenor School of Modern Art in London. Their linocuts and wood engravings were early examples of accessible and affordable art.

Conversations with Lucie Rie: The influence of this prolific Austrian-British potter extended beyond ceramic artists, shaping the sensibilities of non-ceramic artists, collectors and curators across seven decades. The exhibition includes work by a variety of artists, on which her modernist and functional aesthetic stamp can be seen.

Tour costs: $9 admission, $7 travel costs from Sooke ($5 for members) and lunch. Participants will meet at the SEAPARC parking lot at 11am to carpool; anyone willing to drive, please let us know! Please RSVP by March 6 with payment (cheque, cash & credit/debit card accepted): 250-642-7256 or sfas@sookefinearts.com.
