Moss Street Paint-In

Last Saturday Victoria's major art event of the year took place. Over 150 visual artists took part in the 23rd annual Moss Street Paint-In. The Victoria Art Gallery is located on Moss Street, which runs from Fort Street all the way downhill to Dallas Road on the beach. Artists display their art and work on current projects under under the shade of the great trees all down both sides of the street.
While it's mostly painters, there are a few sculptors such as above (top) and potters and artists of other types as well. Add food and music and kids' activities and it's no wonder that about 35,000 people (including the normally shy Vincent Van Gogh - right) turned out.
