Vic West Art Quest

Vic West is the Victoria neighborhood on the western side of the Gorge. It's an eclectic mix of upmarket condos, heritage homes and older working class single family houses. It's a vibrant community with lots of artists and musicians, roughly centered around the "Y" community center in Banfield Park and the Spiral Cafe across the street.

Last night the Spiral Cafe and the neighboring Hemp & Co. hosted the opening reception of the Vic West Art Quest, showing a selection of art work from 19 local artists, one of whom, I'm proud to say, is my daughter. The art will be on display in both these locations until next weekend (May 9 and 10) when the artists will open their homes and studios to anyone interested in looking at their work. A map of locations and other information is available at the Vic West Art Quest web site:

If you're in the neighborhood, stop in at the Spiral and sample some of their tasty food, drink some of their excellent coffee or a "Molly" (named after one of my granddaughters), and look at some of the art on the walls.

Delightful shot through a window, right? Would love to wander through, look at the art, have a "Molly." But it's a long way north of here.

Congrats to your daughter, also!
