You’ve just moved into your new condo in the Highlands district. You bought a Sealy mattress from Mattress Choice, picked up a dining room set and swapped couches with your brother-in-law. After hours and hours of unpacking and furniture arranging, you finally have your new home in order.
Lounging on the couch, you look around at your new digs. Sitting there, you realize, that with the increased wall space you suddenly have a vacuum of art to hang on your walls.
Not a problem.
The Avenue Gallery is hosting an up-and-coming art award show for local Victoria artists. Entiled, the “Victoria Emerging Arts Award,” the finalists’ work will be on display until Thursday, August 26th. A panel of local curators and art critics will judge them.
Prices start at $200, a steal, for a one-of-kind award nominated image.
By buying one of the art offerings, you are supporting a local artist who, up until now, has only had minimal exposure.
So forget the mass produced print of Monet’s ‘Water Lilies,’ and invest in a piece of art that will start a conversation at every viewing.
