Moss Street Paint-In 2010 is here again!

Once again I get to be in the annual Moss Street Paint-In. It's on Saturday, July 17, from 11am-4:30pm. There is a whole lot of art to see so come early and take it all in.
I'm going to be set up on the corner of Revercomb Place and Moss Street. I'll have some new work, some older work, as well as a few pieces in progress to show. I'll also have a Ltd Edition print just for the event which will only be $20! I'll post that shortly.

Here is all the info from the AGGV on the event.

Vancouver Island’s largest outdoor visual art event is celebrating its 23rd Anniversary! Once again TD is demonstrating its commitment to supporting the visual arts as the Paint-In's Title sponsor.

The Paint-In is a community outreach initiative featuring over 100 invited professional and emerging artists from Victoria and surrounding areas. Artists take their studios to the street to display and produce their work on Moss Street between Fort Street and Dallas Road. The Paint-In is a free and fun-filled community-based art awareness and education event that sees 35,000 visitors and receives support from the City of Victoria.

Visitors to the event have the opportunity to meet with an enormous variety of artists and learn about their work and techniques. Ultimately, the event allows local artists access to a receptive audience while encouraging an appreciation of the arts among the visitors. Over 200 volunteers and participating artists dedicate more than 3,800 hours to make this exceptional community event possible.
