Take a tour of Victoria’s downtown galleries

The annual Victoria Gallery Walk explores four downtown galleries Oct. 15 and 16

One of the region’s much-loved art events, the annual Victoria Gallery Walk, returns Oct. 15 and 16.

Delighting art lovers since 1998, the walk invites participants to take in the exhibits at Alcheringa Gallery, Madrona Gallery, University of Victoria Legacy Art Gallery and West End Gallery on Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Sunday, Oct. 16 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Legacy Gallery is open Saturday only.)

The four galleries will feature artists in residence or a hands-on art project with accompanying special exhibitions.

The popular passports are also back for the family-friendly, inclusive event. Pick up a passport at any of the galleries and have it stamped at each location to enter to win one of four prizes, each valued at up to $300.
