About Exhibit

Michael Collard Williams: Publican and Patron of the Arts

Written by Nicholas Tuele, Curator

Foreword: I first met Michael Williams in 1981 upon my arrival in Victoria to assume a curatorial position at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. Over the years, as his art collection grew, he would relish the opportunity to show off his latest treasure whenever I visited the Swans Pub. Michael enjoyed talking about art and the artists represented in his collection and he valued the repartee of a vigorous art discussion.
