September is an excellent time to consider visiting, or re-visiting, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.
Activities and events being staged include the ever-popular House Tour, a tour of unique and architecturally stunning Victoria homes, on Sept. 24.
Tickets for the event go on sale on Friday.
The first Tuesday of the month is always Admission by Donation Day, your excuse to spend a morning (or afternoon) exploring the galleries.
The gallery’s new Water Work Space is part-exhibition and part- workshop. It opens with a public open house and admission by donation on Sept. 16.
The space explores issues related to water — as a resource, a site of trade and exchange, and in relation to climate change.
The Party for our People, a celebration with local and regional artists featured in current exhibitions, features music, refreshments and interactive activities. It takes place on Sept. 21, from 6 to 9 p.m.
ART + FARE 3 is a celebration of all things local (and an annual fundraiser). It is held at and organized by the Union Club of British Columbia. The event takes place on Sept. 23, from 7 to 11 p.m. Tickets are available at artandfare.com.

• Moving Forward by Looking Back, Sept. 2 at 2 p.m.
• Close to Home, Sept. 3 at 2 p.m.
• Close to Home Curator’s Tour, Sept. 5 at 2 p.m.
