Legacy Small Gallery
The Legacy Art Gallery and Café presents Inside Chinatown: Paintings by Robert Amos. The exhibition showcases 20 original paintings of the fascinating interiors of Victoria’s Chinatown.
Victoria’s Chinatown is Canada’s oldest Chinese neighbourhood, second only to San Francisco in North America, and has a lineage unbroken since 1858. Original artwork from Robert Amos will take you behind the doors of the 29 private clubs that make up the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association. You’ll see the gilded altars, antique art and ornate furniture that grace these meeting halls.
Amos’ new book Inside Chinatown (co-authored by Kileasa Wong, TouchWood Editions) will be available for sale at the Legacy’s gift shop.
