I fell in love with Red when I first arrived from Calgary. Marion and Bob have been an immense help in starting me on my art collection. I fell in love with so many pieces of art from Red and appreciate their help in hanging my art with me. Bravo to a great team!

I found Bob really warm and friendly. I recommend any walking along Oak Bay Avenue needs to go in and see the work of his spouse Marion Evamy.

Thanks Wendy...we often sell art from our emails and Facebook posts, but so far, a bar in Bucharest has topped the list of unlikely places to do business! Enjoy your new painting and thank you again for staying in touch. More

For locals and out of town visitors, Red gallery offers a wide variety of quality contemporary art for both the adventurous and the discerning collector. Marion and Bobb, the owners, represent numerous artists and routinely shuffle the deck to make each visit a novel experience. Highly recommended!

Bobb and Marion, and their dedicated sales team of Magnus and Patita have created a unique gallery experience. The quality of the work and the ambience combined make a visit to Red Art Gallery a must see when visiting Victoria. Be prepared to leave with a painting, or possibly two.

Bought a little piece at Red Art Gallery when I was window shopping while waiting for my honey at the dentist two years ago - have professional experience in galleries but this visit was a real treat.

Hi Lori, Thanks for the great review! We remember your "window shopping" episode, and look forward to seeing you again this summer. We have indeed moved into a larger space further up Oak Bay Avenue. Lots of new art and artists for you to see on your next visit - still great selection, variety and affordable quality art! More

The artists are varied and vibrant. There is always someone new that I was unaware of and interested in. I love the different styles and the attitudes represented. The colour in the gallery as a whole is so vibrant and exciting it makes me want to take home most of what I see. ann
