2011 Dream Home Tour

Take advantage of a rare opportunity to visit custom-built homes in Victoria at the 2011 House Tour, hosted by the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. This year, six dream homes, all built to the specifications of their owners, will be open to tour. Included are: a family-friendly live/work home, two homes planned for future retirement needs, and a Belgian-inspired Uplands estate. Remarkable custom design features include a one-of-a-kind underground showcase for collector cars, complete with auto elevator. The tour also features live demonstrations by eight local artists, including painters Adelle Andrew, Robert Amos, Nixie Barton and Grant Leier, Manon Elder, Joan Pattee and Blu Smith, as well as ceramic artist Sam Dickie. The House Tour is one of the largest fundraisers for the Gallery Associates, with proceeds going to support the AGGV’s exhibitions and programming. Tickets are $40 and are available at the AGGV on Moss Street, Peninsula Gallery in Sidney and all three Garden Works locations. As an added bonus this year, each ticket purchased can be used for two-for-one admission at the AGGV. M
