Gifts by Artists

Multiples for the Holidays


Gifts by Artists at Art Metropole, offers unconventional and fantastic new multiples from over 50 artists, just in time for the holiday shopping season.

If you're like me with a list of people to buy for, who already have one of everything, Nikki Woolsey's Lint Pin and Max Dean's Thumb Chair wrapped in retro karmic "What did I do to deserve this" paper and a Sandy Plotnikoff campy Holidays Canceled card are going to be your shopping salvation. Coincidentally, Sandy's cards are also a good substitute gift if you're on a lean budget, which could be me if I treat myself to one of General Idea's Nine Lives flags.

Holidays Canceled Cards

If you're not into shopping for others and just want to spoil yourself, I recommend picking up one of Anne Fauteux's Remontant wind-up brooches, Peter Gazendam's canned Touch of Evil (Black Peter) and half a dozen of Shannon Partridge's adorable pipe cleaner Banana's.

And I would be remiss not to mention John Marriot's An Atheist's Festive Tree Topper, a silver star embedded into a meteorite, the pièce de rÊsistance of alternative holiday decorating.

Art Metropole also has T-shirts, buttons, books, flags, DVDs and other artists' products available for sale.

Gifts by Artists runs until January 5, 2008, @ Art Metropole, (788 King Street West)
Hours:: Tuesday to Friday 11- 6 and Saturdays 12 - 5pm
