This is an interesting old building architecturally and the back garden is well worth a visit. New exhibits are constantly changing, and an older section of the building stays the same. Lovely, small gift shop. The area it is located gives you a different feel for residential Victoria.

In a historic home. I missed it last trip. They have Rembrant etchings. I'm truly amazed at some of the shows they have. Saw the French impressionist paintings there.

This time it was a Carole Sabiston exhibition (very interesting and attractive large textile pieces), a quick look around the Emily Carr exhibition, and the Rembrandt etchings. We didn't have time for the permanent display today, but there is always something worth looking at in the Oriental gallery. Parking a bit difficult, but well worth a visit--or a membership if you live in Victoria (a membership here gives you reciprocal rights in a lot of other galleries in the province and possibly beyond, so if you have a membership in another art gallery, check whether your card will work here as well).

This is worth a visit. Nice gallery, well laid out. A little off the beaten path but worth the trip.
