This gallery has it all!
Oct. 2020
Avenue Gallery is my favourite gallery in Victoria, so when we renovated our house I looked there for the perfect piece of art for a feature wall in our home. I found the perfect painting, which the gallery owner, Heather, personally came and hung for us. Having Heather come in person to our home means a lot to us, so that this special painting by Shinah Lee is perfectly placed in its feature location. The pieces that Heather chooses for her gallery are unique and inviting. there is no pressure to buy - just super welcoming people and exceptional art in paint, glass, pottery, sculpture and jewellery. This gallery has it all!

Superior Customer Service
Dec. 2019 • Solo
We have purchased several Lisa Samphire pieces to add to our collection of her work. All contact has been by phone as we are located in Florida, USA. Avenue Gallery staff have been very easy to work with. Our orders are shipped promptly. They are very well packaged and have arrived in perfect condition. We look forward to continuing to work with these fine folks in the future.

Fantastic Online Experience

I stumbled upon the gallery while I was searching online for a particular style of painting. I am so glad I did. Heather and her team are wonderful and so easy to work with. They were willing to work with me on a layaway plan and even shipped the painting to me. The Avenue Gallery is top notch.

A wonderful experience
Oct. 2018 • Friends
My friend and I were fortunate to visit The Avenue Gallery today. What a pleasurable experience. The gallery owner/ manager(?) Heather Wheeler provided a very heartfelt welcome up entering the gallery and introduced us to the current exhibition, providing some meaningful information on the artist. At various times she checked in with us and provided additional gems of information on the other artists work on display. Being on holidays we were not dressed that smartly and we were not dismissed because of that. Oddly enough that is actually a novel experience as many gallerists these days prejudge the worth of a person on first impressions.
Well done The Avenue Gallery. I highly recommend this gallery based on the quality of the work and customer experience.

Best West Coast Gallery in Victoria
Oct. 2016 • Solo
This is an amazing gallery, particularly for West Coast art. Reasonable but not cheap prices with a selection of established and rising artists. A nice stop when visiting Oak Bay Village.

Excellent Art Gallery - way more than just paintings...
Jul. 2016 • Couples
I visit Victoria every 2-3 years and I recently found this Gallery on FB. Just from their website, I knew I wanted to visit. I had in my mind I wanted to buy a ring. I was so happy I found this gallery. I wish it was in my hometown so I could visit more often. The art was displayed beautifully and the selection and quality of art was quite amazing. I also liked how the gallery had a bio of each artist with their work. I loved many paintings, but I wanted to buy a ring. The owner (Heather) made it so much fun and she was very helpful. Once we knew my ring size, we went around the gallery trying on rings from multiple different artists. She was definitely not a pushy salesperson. I ended up walking out of the gallery with a beautiful ring on my finger. When we paid for it, she printed out a bio of the artist and the ring I selected. I will be sure to visit this gallery every time I am in Victoria. The prices were reasonable. There were some expensive pieces, but overall fair for what they were. Perhaps next time a painting.

Exceptional and almost affordable paintings
Jun. 2016 • Couples
Stopped in on our daughter's recommendation, and loved it. My wife is an aspiring artist, and she was very impressed with Kiel's bold yet very tasteful paintings. There must have been 20, from $700 to $3,000. Modern and impressionistic, hang able in our house, if there were room on our walls. The gallery owner clearly knows good paintings that are affordable. The Winchester gallery down the street has more museum quality art, at justifiably higher prices, but affordable by a very few.
