Dear Friend of TOAF, 

As you know, we open today with an exciting Art Talk on Zoom at 10:30am about How Art Collecting Works, featuring two incredible forces in the Canadian art world: Neil Brochu, curator of the City of Toronto Art Collection, and David Mirvish, Canadian art dealer/collector/theatre producer. If you haven't done so already, we encourage you to register now. You don't want to miss this insightful conversation!

Tune in our daily Studio Tours and impromptu Instagram Live Q&A's with TOAF staff and participating artists on our IGTV! If you missed yesterday's 2020 Juror's Picks, moderated by Lee Petrie, don't fret. You can watch it any time on our Youtube channel.

We are incredibly humbled by the success of this year's online adaptation, and we can't believe there are still 7 more days left! We love seeing our artists simulate their own virtual tours and interactions. We encourage you to continue spreading the love, and don't forget to use #TOAF59 on social media.
