Olio Takes Stock

27 09 2010

The outdoor stages have been taken down, the bands have loaded up their tour vans and local music fans are sitting at their desks nursing hangovers—Rifflandia 3 is officially over. But if you want to relive some of the magic that happened over the last four days in Victoria—as well as take in some fantastic local art—swing by the Olio Cooperative at 614 1/2 Fisgard to check out the Live!Stock poster exhibition.

This is the third year that local artists have been tapped to create original posters for some of Rifflandia’s major acts, with this year’s 13-artist roster including the likes of Shawn O’Keefe, Luke Ramsey and Evan Pine. The show is up until October 16, so if you missed it this weekend, there’s still time to check it out—and, if something really strikes you, prints of the posters are available for sale.

Other Artlandia events, such as the Lee Renaldo exhibition, are still on display for a few more days…so be sure to check them out, too. Full details are here.
