This year, The City of Victoria and Open Space are delighted to showcase Victoria-based artist Daniel Ellingsen as the fourth instalment for the Commercial Alley Art Gallery, located between the 500 block of Yates Street and Bastion Square.
Ellingsen's Coastal Reports will open as part of the Integrate Arts Festival on Saturday, August 27 from 6:00 p.m.- 9:00 p.m.
Coastal Reports combines sculptural cutouts, gold-leaf, and texture to comment on Victoria's landscape. Ellingsen's work is both playful, profound, and topical, asking viewers to reflect on the relationship between the coast and city. To celebrate Ellingsen's work, the opening will be a festive, outdoor event featuring drinks from Silk Road Tea and live music from local musician Chris Sartisohn.
