Parkside Paints the Summer
In the wake of the incredible success of our very first art event held in November 2009, Parkside Victoria Resort & Spa will be having a follow-up art showing!
Parkside Paints the Summer is an evening of local art, wine and cheese. The exhibition features paintings by Erica Messing, Craig Bauer and mixed media representations by Coral Clay that explore their own observations and encounters with Victoria, the West Coast and the world around them.
Both Erica and Craig will be showing their art at one of Victoria's premiere art events, the Moss Street Paint-In earlier in the day.
Hosted by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and sponsored by TD Canada Trust, the Paint-In is an impressive outdoor art show that spans the length of Moss Street from Fort Street to Dallas Road and attracts crowds of up to 40,000 people over the course of the event.
Once art lovers have taken in the festivities on Moss Street, they are invited to attend an evening of delicious locally-sourced appetizers and wine while enjoying stunning creations by Erica, Craig and Coral and having the opportunity to meet these talented artists.
Says Erica Messing of the day's events, “The Moss Street Paint-In is always so much fun that I never want it to end. I wanted a way to extend the day, and a way to say thank you to everyone who came out to see the art work in a more personal setting.
Having a show at Parkside seemed like the perfect solution; it's such an incredibly beautiful space for showcasing art and it's within walking distance of Victoria's greatest attractions and activities, including the Paint-In. I'm very excited to be showing there again.”
The three local artists will be hosting an evening exhibit and sale of over 50 of their original works at Parkside Victoria Resort & Spa in the garden atrium and in the penthouse City Club lounge with on Saturday July 17, 2010 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. Enjoy regional, organic food and wine and meet the artists at this truly local event.
