5th annual “Artists with Disabilities” Showcase – a huge success!
THANK YOU to all who attended our 5 th annual “Artists with Disabilities Showcase”
December 1st and 2nd at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
VDRC Board Members Les Chan, Ami Gordon and our wonderful Volunteers greeted a
steady stream of visitors both days – including a terrific art class from Reynolds Secondary
School. The students were so impressed, they’ve already starting working on submissions
for next year!
With several other displays open to the public, Art Gallery staff commented ours was the
busiest exhibition of the day. We featured over 30 juried pieces, created by two dozen local
artists with disabilities. Organized by VDRC board members Ami Gordon and Les Chan,
Brian Adam of Rogers Communications and several VDRC volunteers – we gratefully
acknowledge I.O.N featuring Hemp & Company Essentials for their support and
This 5th annual endeavour held in conjunction with United Nations’ International
Day of Persons with Disabilities was a tremendous success because of you!
