What a fabulous Opening Night for Never Dine Alone. The vision was achieved. Thanks to all the artists, sponsors, collectors, and the 300 partygoers who dressed the part. Show runs November 04th -13, 2011 from 11-3 daily except Remembrance Day 2-4 pm. For location details click here.

Neck of the Woods Winery is continuing it’s sales of the Nosey Neighbour with a portion of proceeds going to art charity.

Here are some of my favorite photos so far, with a link to Facebook PhotoGallery for more. Videos and full event coverage to follow!

Great testimonial from one event attendee.

“…also thank you so much for including us in such a fun event – we greatly enjoyed it all and thought that it was ahead of its time in Victoria, could have been in Greenwich Village New York it was all so IN – yes indeed would love to come to parties of this sophistication and allure….”
