Canada’s leading contemporary outdoor and online art fair

July 12 – 14, 2024.

Your New Encounters

An impressive roster of artists and organizations are participating in this year’s Art Encounters program – TOAF’s dedicated access and outreach program.

We are delighted to introduce you to Art Encounters artists and curated showcases of Tangled Art + Disability and Canadian Cultural Society of the Deaf (CCSD)

Today we are also spotlighting community booths that will join us at the Square and online. These growing partnerships bring new dimensions to the Fair and allow us to introduce you to new artists and organizations. We invite you to take the time to explore and learn more about our wonderful community.  


Thank you

Art Encounters – TOAF’s access and accessibility program continues to grow and deepen its impact in beautiful ways.  

A three-year commitment from TD Bank Group and solid support from The Lindy Green Family Foundation一The Lead Supporter of Art Encounters一has allowed us to expand the program and connect with exceptional artists and communities for the Fair and year-long. 

The expansion includes professional development, mentorship, and the highly popular Demystifying the Art World workshops. Stay tuned for a new series of workshops in the coming months. 

Thank you to Higgins Event Rental and our donors for continued support of this program.
