One Big Show


Saturday night, forget Richmond Street, Queen Street, Bloor West or whatever hip little corner of the city you always end up at. This Saturday, get your art on (did I just say that? ack.) at College & Dufferin.

That's when the Big Show is throwing their opening gala event. The name isn't exactly descriptive, I realize, so in a nutshell: it's a showcase of 20 painters and sculptors from Toronto as well as Corner Brook, Montreal, Grimsby, Apsley, and Chicago. The artists will converge on College St for an exhibition which promises to be huge.

As well as being able to see all the work on display, the artists will actually be in attendance so you'll have a chance for a little meet and greet as well.

Should you fall in love with any of the pieces, make note that there will be a silent auction as well. No idea what prices for the artwork will be like, but promoters are describing the event as a "great opportunity to start or add to your art collection at a very reasonable price." The gala itself is FREE/GRATIS so it won't cost a penny to find out what reasonable amounts to be.

Everything goes down at 1139 College St (at Dufferin) between 7pm-10:30pm (which means you can probably crawl on over to Queen Street later anyways).* Live music and refreshments shall be plentiful... don't miss out.

If you do (miss out), exhibition hours will be Tuesday to Sunday, May 8 to 29, 2005 - 12:00 to 6:00 p.m.
