Yorkville Art Walk
Thursday, October 2, 2008
Panel of 8 images selected from the past 12 months. See current images below.
You are invited to join us on the Yorkville Art Walk and enjoy many excellent works of art in Canada's premiere art scene, Yorkville. The walks are scheduled for the first Thursday of each month, except for January.
If this is your first time attending, you will find the monthly Yorkville Art Walk is 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. The exhibiting artist for Scolllard Street Gallery, Ritchie Sinclair, will be in attendance for the October walk. Ingram Gallery will not be participating this month but have donated a pair of tickets to the Toronto International Art Fair. The tickets will be awarded to a lucky Art Walk attendee by way of a draw to be conducted at the Coffee Mill at the conclusion of the walk.
(See "Itinerary" below for details.)
NOTE: Eight galleries will be participating this month. Four galleries will be continuting the exhibitions that were in place for last month's walk. These are: Beckett Fine Art Ltd., Liss Gallery, Scollard Street Gallery (plus new artists) and San Base Studio. To see images from these four galleries just review the September Art Walk.
A number of new exhibitions will be in place for October. The associated galleries are: Hollander York Gallery, Impressions Art Gallery, Kinsman Robinson Galleries and Leonardo Gallery. To see images from these four galleries please visit their individual web sites as noted in the itinerary below.
Two galleries will not be participating in the October walk but will resume for the November walk. These are: Ingram Gallery, who will be at the Toronto International Art Fair, and Old Master Gallery, who will be engaged in an installation.
Only ONE image is included in this month's email reminder in order to simplify this month's communication. The plan is to resume the practice of displaying an image from each gallery for the November 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 volunteer 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.
