Welcome to the February Art Walk!
The next Yorkville Art Walk, scheduled for February 4th, is the first Art Walk in 2010 and it is promising to be an interesting event, with core galleries participating in a "highlights" walk, and new exhibitions in place. There will be a total of six galleries on this month's walk. The participating galleries are:
- Hollander York Gallery
- Ingram Gallery
- Kinsman Robinson Galleries
- Leonardo Galleries
- Liss Gallery
- Odon Wagner Gallery
Exhibiting artists, or their representatives, will be on-site and available for a "meet and greet" at Hollander York Gallery, Ingram Gallery and Leonardo Gallery. You are welcome to check this web page up to February 4th for any last minute changes.
Note that the February issue of "Where Toronto", the visitor magazine, includes an article on the galleries of Yorkville. A "Where" representative will be in attendance at 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. If you want to get some fresh air and meet the artists join us for the walk.

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.
Location: Start at Hazelton Lanes Mall, 55 Avenue Rd., Toronto, Ontario
Meet on the lower level, opposite Brown’s Shoe Store in the open seating area, at the bottom of the staircase to the 2nd floor.
Free parking in Hazelton Lanes underground parking lot. Enter from the 'Whole Foods' parking entrance at 87 Avenue Rd.
Ask your Art Walk guide for a "free parking" pass when you arrive for the tour. Use the free pass in place of the original one, when you exit the parking lot. Do NOT use your credit card when you enter the lot.
