Arts Etobicoke Gallery
Contributed by Sameer Vasta
It may be a small place, but the Arts Etobicoke Gallery is the home to big things. Doubling as the home offices for Arts Etobicoke -- a member supported, volunteer organization in Etobicoke that aims to engage all people in West Toronto with the arts and artists in their own community -- the gallery also showcases work by local artists throughout the year.
Established in December 2005 and nestled in the Dundas West neighbourhood just outside Islington station, the gallery includes enough room for traditional and interactive art installations and a small performance space.
Prior exhibitions have included This Is My Neighbourhood, a joint program of Arts Etobicoke, Toronto District School Board and the Art Gallery of Ontario showcasing student art, and Exploring Creativity in Depth, a collaboration with the Milkweed Collective.
