A new artist space will fill a small void on Oak Bay Avenue. In the pocket between Kharma Design Studio and Gold, Silver and Coin Shoppe, 17 artists launch Gage Gallery today.
“Some of us are from the art collective that was in Fernwood and folded a couple years ago and we have been missing it a lot,” said Diana Durrand, one of five board members. “We miss having that whole group support. We looked for a space that we could afford and that took a couple of months.”
The non-profit collective decided on 2031 Oak Bay Ave. because of its attractive appeal at an affordable price, the close proximity to other galleries, and because Oak Bay seems like a community supportive of contemporary arts and appreciative of exhibits.
