For The Social Butterfly: A Space's 35th, Bata Shoe Museum's Riches and DMG's Post Object

A Space Gallery celebrates its 35th year this Thursday, January 18 at 8:30 pm @ Suite 110 - 401 Richmond St. W. Lisa Steele and Sandra Brewster will be there speaking about the history of A Space being "A Space for Art -- A Space for Activism".

Now that the Bata Shoe Museum has recovered its stolen golden mojari, its throwing its storage vault doors open to the public for Chronicles of Riches: Treasures from the Bata Shoe Museum, opening this Thursday, January 18 and running for the year. Don't miss this chance to get a glimpse of Napoleon's socks (they didn't call him Nappy for nothing!). And try not to steal on your way out. Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors/ students and $4 for youths ages 5-17, but after 5 pm on Thursday admission is free. @ 327 Bloor Street West at St. George.

The opening reception for Post Object is this Thursday from 5-9 pm @ the Doris McCarthy Gallery, the University of Toronto Scarborough. A free shuttle bus taking you there departs from 401 Richmond at 6 pm. With post-objects by artists Michael Joo, Kimsooja, Samina Mansuri, Pushpamala N. and Ravinder Reddy and curated by Deepali Dewan, this event's bus is the one I'm planning to get on. Runs until March 11, Tuesdays to Fridays 10 -4pm & Sundays 12-5pm @ DMG, 1265 Military Trail (South of Hwy 401 at Morningside).
