Limners-victoria canada


A group of 18 Victoria-area artists active in the late 1960s and formally organized in 1971 to socialize and discuss their mutual interest in art. Unlike most art associations, their "reason to be" was primarily social. Most had their own studios, which meant that being a part of the Limners countered studio isolation. As members aged, gatherings became increasingly casual. In November 2005, the Moore Gallery of Victoria held an exhibition of work by the members whose names included Maxwell Bates, Richard Ciccimarra, Walter Dexter, Herbert Siebner, Jack Wilkinson and Eliza Mayhew.
