Artwork by local artist Daniel Ellingsen will be introduced as the Commercial Alley Art Gallery’s fourth installation on Saturday, August 27, 2016 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Located on the west wall of the Youth Empowerment Society building on the 500 Block of Yates Street, the outdoor gallery showcases temporary installations by local artists to add colour and vitality to the area.

Ellingsen’s proposal was one of 24 submissions reviewed in a juried Call to Artists process. The annual initiative is funded by the City of Victoria in partnership with the Open Space Arts Society. Founded in 1972, Open Space is a Victoria-based, non-profit, artist-run centre that supports professional artists who utilize hybrid and experimental approaches to media, art, music and performance.

Complimentary tea will be provided by Silk Road Tea, and comfortable furniture provided by Used.ca.
