Welcome to the first Art Walk of 2009!
Welcome to the first Art Walk preview for 2009. Since there was no walk scheduled for January, the Art Walk of February 5th will be the first walk for the year. If you saw the gallery ads in the Globe & Mail on Saturday, Jan. 31st or checked the Yorkville News web site on the weekend you would have seen the highlights for this month's walk.
If this is your first time attending, you will find the monthly Yorkville Art Walk an ideal opportunity to view and consider a wide range of quality originals from exceptional artists. Guests will see a broad range of styles and media with something for everyone.
Three exhibiting artists will be in attendance for the Feb./09 Art Walk: Ivan Papazov Vanche and Jesus Mora (Impressions Gallery) and Shaun Downey (Ingram Gallery).

A highly informative monthly tour takes place in the Yorkville Art Gallery district, giving newcomers and regular attendees a focused overview of the Yorkville art scene. This informal, free tour begins by gathering at the Rotunda (lower level) in the Hazelton Lanes Mall, opposite Browns’ Shoe Store. The attendees split into two or three smaller groups which visit selected area galleries during the evening. Each small group is led by a tour guide who is familiar with art appreciation and the local art scene. Some of the galleries may have featured artists present for the tour. A wide range of Contemporary or Historical Canadian and International works of art are available for viewing. At the end of the evening attendees may join the group for coffee at a local area café. The Artsgroup hopes you will consider this event for your calendar.
