Toronto galleries join forces for weekend art party

Nuit Blanche might be the biggest contemporary art event in Toronto, but the massive autumnal spectacle isn't for everyone. Luckily, for those who don't want to push through the all-night crowds, there's another art party happening just two weeks earlier.

Surface, an alternative art fair and party happening at 99 Sudbury on September 19 and 20, will bring together five independent Toronto galleries to showcase work by young and emerging artists. The show will hopefully give a larger, and more public, platform to those coming up in the city's visual arts scene.

The curated show bills itself as collaborative and it'll include The Black Cat, Project Gallery, Graven Feather, Hashtag Gallery and Creative Blueprint. All of the work exhibited will be on sale throughout the weekend.
