The extraordinary collaboration between Stella Meades and hundreds of artists has resulted in an amazing collection of handcrafted shoes, which will be sold by donation with money raised to go towards children in countries affected by war. The Victoria show is the second of four shows where the shoes will be shown and sold.
The opening of the Victoria show will take place Friday, Feb. 15, 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. at the Community Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, G6-1001 Douglas St. The shoes will be sold by donation at the Gallery from Feb. 15 to 27, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday to Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
