Take a seasonal stroll

Art on the Avenue offers art, activities for all

Art and activities abound in the Oak Bay Village tomorrow (Dec. 5).

The village comes alive for the 10th annual Art on the Avenue Gallery Walk and Ottavio Tasting Evening.

Not just limited to art galleries, the event has grown to include music and activities while shops and galleries throughout Oak Bay Village open their doors between 6 and 8 p.m. to feature artists in attendance, special receptions, activities and seasonal treats.

Among the activities you can find a kids origami and paper crane making event at Just Matcha. The goal is to have participants create more than 100 origami cranes which will be sold (by donation) at the Just Matcha store for $5 a crane. The proceeds from the sale of the cranes will be given to C-FAX Santa’s Anonymous. A nightly door prize, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and treats can be found at A La Mode, bring a non-perishable item to receive a discount.

Visitors to the Gallery Walk will also be able to enter to win a watercolour of their house painted by renowned painter Victor Lotto. Entries are available at participating shops and galleries.
