Legacy Art Gallery Downtown

630 Yates Street

The 1960s marked a growing cultural awareness and pride in the contemporary visual arts of Victoria. Events such as the B.C. centennial celebrations in 1958 and Expo ‘67 created a widespread impetus for experimental cultural production. The opening of the University of Victoria’s Gordon Head campus expanded local arts education, which coincided with the opening of new commercial and public galleries. Both developments drew professional artists, often with international roots, to Victoria. At the same time a cultural resurgence was taking place in Indigenous art partly supported by the Provincial Museum’s Thunderbird Park carving program as well as new Indigenous owned and operated galleries and commercial ventures.

This exhibition features a selection of work by resident artists including Maxwell Bates, Henry Hunt, Eric Metcalfe, Margaret Peterson, Herbert Siebner, Robin Skelton, and Ina D.D. Uhthoff to demonstrate the spontaneous activity and networks that brought contemporary art to the forefront of B.C.’s capital city.
