Almost every Toronto resident has memories — fond or otherwise — of their interactions with and adventures in Kensington Market. *Hotshot, a new gallery and exhibition space in Kensington Market, is asking Torontonians to share their Kensington experiences as part of their opening exhibition, Reflecting Kensington.

The opening celebration takes place this Friday night, and will feature Kensington Market-themed photography, print and street art, sound design, and other art installations. The celebration will also feature a slideshow featuring photos of Kensington Market by Toronto Flickr users.

Ella Cooper, media contact for *Hotshot, stressed the importance of providing a space for artists that reflects the open and accessible aspect of the Market itself: "Our goal is to showcase new art works, unique events and provide a modular retail environment that is continually being adapted to match the changing concepts within the space."

The opening celebration will feature local artists like Carmine Scioscia, Posterchild, Amber Landgraff, Janina Piva, and Maike Murrary Maas, and promises to be an exciting way to party away a Friday night while also celebrating the cultural heritage of Kensington Market.

Before you go, take a quick browse through the blogTO Flickr pool to see if you can recognize some of the photographs during the slideshow.
