Hot Art: Fresh Viewing

The city’s art scene is ever evolving, with new venues cropping up in districts both established and up-and-coming. Check out the visual possibilities at these recent additions.

Dennis Lin's large-scale sculpture No. 1-60 was recently displayed at 47

1 Named simply for its civic address, 47 is a gallery for the display of mixed-media installation and sculptural art that interacts with its large, converted woodshop space in unconventional ways.

2 Just steps from two of Toronto’s major art institutions (the AGO and OCAD) sits 52 McCaul. The colourful murals adorning its north and south facades reflect the gallery’s interests—street and pop art prevail, but the oft-changing exhibit schedule also allows for photos, installations and other pieces by emerging artists.

3 Inviting Alison Smith Gallery exudes sophistication along a modest strip of Dundas Street West. Within this polished space hang works of contemporary fine art that demonstrate their makers’ thoughtful approach and technical mastery.
