5 new art galleries in Toronto
Art galleries in Toronto are not confined to any one pocket of the city. Increasingly, gallery owners are leaving bustling (and expensive) areas like West Queen West and resettling northward near Dupont St., where's there now a burgeoning arts scene. But there are still newcomers who have settled into some of the spaces left behind.
Here's a round-up of notable new art galleries in Toronto.
Only One Gallery
Only One Gallery in Parkdale has taken over the space formerly occupied by Neubacher Shor. The space is vast with exposed-brick walls and high ceilings. Aside from its focus on contemporary art the gallery frequently hosts events and product launches.
At Ossington and Dupont, this gallery is housed in an unassuming building with rusted grates over the windows, reminiscent of a prison - so that's how you know it's legit. The gallery dedicates itself to showcasing contemporary art by emerging Toronto artists.
This gallery is found in a small and narrow storefront in the Junction. Their very first exhibition showcased a series called Small Monuments by Laura Moore. The artist created multiple generations of computer mice sculpted from soapstone.
Alison Milne Gallery
This former Niagara St. gallery has relocated north to the Junction Triangle. They continue to showcase exciting work from emerging local talent working in all mediums.
The former Parkdale gallery now calls Dupont and Lansdowne home. Their mandate hasn't changed, though; they remain dedicated to nurturing and exhibiting the talents of young Canadian artists.
