Looking Back at The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition


This weekend I stopped by the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. It was a lot bigger and more interesting than expected. Reminded me how many talented artists - of all disciplines - we have in the city.

As I walked around the grounds outside City Hall, I snapped a bunch of photos of some of my faves like Milk Sugar Bacon (above) by Louis Cohen. There was definitely more than painting and photography here. I guess it just so happened that's what stood out for me.

I'm pretty sure I've seen Mike Parsons doing his thing on Queen West. He was attracting a bit of a crowd at the TOAE. His work is really intricate and involved.

Not sure if this one was from Krista Bursey or Jason Watterman but it picked up a top prize for something.

I really liked Paul C's work. These look like paintings but they're actually high res photos taken against a white background, printed on canvas.

Oleh Sirant won an award for Best Portraits at the show. He too prints his photos on canvas.

I really liked these still life's from Dorion Scott. Or maybe I was just hungry.
