Art Toronto 2012

 

 

Yesterday evening we attended the opening night of Art Toronto 2012 held at the Metro Convention Centre in downtown Toronto.

Now in its 13th year, the Toronto International Art Fair provides the opportunity to view the work of some of Canada’s best contemporary artists as well as international representation from galleries based in the UK and the rest of Europe. This year the special focus was on Asia with thirteen galleries exhibiting work from China, Japan, and Korea.

The attendance was strong and energy levels high as collectors, gallery owners and artists shared opinions and ideas whilst ultimately selling and acquiring art.

Works which particularly appealed to us included:

Toronto based artist Angela Leach represented by Herringer Kiss Gallery.

The work of Los Angeles based artist Alex Couwenberg represented by The Jennifer Kostuik Gallery

The work of Tom Wesselmann exhibited by Galerie de Bellefeuille, Montreal,QC

The work of Denis Juneau exhibited by Galerie Simon Blais, Montreal, QC

A new series of sculpture by Toronto based artist Jiri Ladocha represented by Julie M Gallery, Toronto

Art Toronto runs from October 26th to October 29th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto. Tickets can be bought online here.
