Here are the top 10 art shows happening this fall in Toronto.
Last year, Ward 15 Councillor Josh Colle helped rename the oft-overlooked roadway, at Eglinton and Oakwoods, Reggae Lane. Together with the public arts organization The STEPS Initiative and The Laneway Project, Toronto-based artist Adrian Hayles and a group of young painters created a massive outdoor mural to makeover the space.
"I would say it's naïve of anybody to not see the relevance of art online, especially on Instagram," says Manifesto's visual art director Ashley McKenzie-Barnes, who curated the show along with 1LOVETO for the 6ix x 6 Instagram portion.
This juried show will feature more than 350 artists and will see close to 100,000 people perusing through its various booths. Along with paintings and drawings there will also be plenty of sculpture, multimedia, textile, ceramic, jewelry and printmaking work on display (and for sale).
