What an incredible evening for the Arts in Victoria, BC! The LOOK Victoria Exhibition 2011 put on by the Community Arts Council, is exhibiting over 500 pieces of original art by local artists in both 2D and 3D formats. It was such an exciting Opening with an elbow to elbow enthusiastic crowd!
LOOK Victoria is an open entry show, allowing new emerging artists to get a taste for entering and showing their work. It's such a wonderfully supportive and community oriented show, with emerging and first time exhibiting artists works hanging with well known established artists. A great way to mentor. Many of Victoria's artists, myself included, exhibited their work for the first time at LOOK. One of our Oak Bay Art Society Artists, Martin Machacek, won a prize! His work is amazing and so unique! Check out his lively architectural paintings.
There was an outstanding variety and calibre of work including many beautiful 3D pieces.
Here's one of my pieces on the top left - Tutti Frutti. An original acrylic 24" x 24".
There was even wearable art! Three fun loving women donned fantastic glittering costumes which were true works of art. They added an exotic and exciting drama to the evening. The woman on the right with the elaborate head gear, is wearing an masterfully created candelabra which was actually lit, and glowing on her head! All in all it was truly a wonderful evening.
The Look Victoria Exhibition and Sale continues for an entire month, Feb 4 - Mar 4, in the Bay Center, Lower Level, opening at noon and continuing until regular mall closing hours each day. Check it out!
