Linny D. Vine is one of six artists who will be painting in homes that are on the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria's
House Tour on Sunday.
What: Art Gallery of Greater Victoria House Tour
Where: Six spectacular Victoria homes
When: Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Tickets: $35 at the AGGV, Peninsula Gallery in Sidney, and all Garden Works locations.
What would the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria house tour be without some of this city's most famous painters and sculptors working on site at each of the homes?
A lot less colourful for one thing, and less interesting, too.
Six artists are taking part in the event this year and among them, Linny D. Vine. While most often painting in [her] home studio, [she is] looking forward to the event.
"I'm used to painting with lots of people around," said Vine, who has taken part in the [Art Gallery of Greater Victoria] Moss Street Paint-In for many years and enjoys meeting some of the 35,000 people who stroll up and down the outdoor gallery.
"It's fun when art is interactive," said the artist, who plans to paint one of her signature lighthouses in oils on Sunday, and will bring several completed paintings, too. "I can see the Race Rocks lighthouse from the balcony at home, and the Fisgard lighthouse, almost," said Vine, who had an exhibition at the Victoria art gallery [Art Gallery of Greater Victoria] in the spring.
This is the first time that [she] has painted for the house tour and happy to support the gallery because "it is the centre of the universe, artstically, in Victoria."
