From February 21-24, 2013 at the Better Living Centre in Toronto, artists from all artistic and geographic backgrounds converge with art buyers, interior designers, gallerists, and art enthusiasts in this exciting four-day art fair. This is a rare opportunity for visitors to meet and purchase work directly from over 250 carefully juried, contemporary Canadian and International artists.
The opening night party takes place on Thursday, February 21 from 7:00 to 10:00pm. Enjoy an electric evening of art, music, delicious eats and cocktails! Be among the first to view and purchase original works of art from top contemporary artists. Tickets are $25 per person; a portion of ticket proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Art Foundation. This is a 19+ event.
In support of emerging artists, 14 of the country’s best up-and-coming artists were selected from hundreds of applications to showcase their work in this special exhibition. Support your favourite emerging artist and vote in the Canadian Art Untapped People’s Choice Award where the winner will be awarded a free booth at The Artist Project 2014.
This year, the artists have been challenged to create a piece of art based on their interpretation of the theme “faces.” Selected by a panel of judges, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners will receive cash prizes, and visitors can vote for their favourite entry in the People’s Choice Award.
Experience an intimate and relaxing day of art with an Art Outing Tour. Over a glass of wine and cheese plate, explore the show in an art-guided tour where you will engage in interesting discussions on hot contemporary art trends with top independent artists. The package includes admission, a glass of wine, cheese platter and tour. Tours last approximately 45 minutes. Spaces are limited.
The Better Living Centre is located at Exhibition Place in Toronto.
