Weekend Bonus: The City’s Biggest Art Show

OCTOBER 22 to 26 Whatever the weather, you’ll want to head indoors this weekend to join thousands of art lovers—both amateurs and aficionados—at the annual Toronto International Art Fair. This highly anticipated event brings together artists and galleries from around the world for an outstanding exhibition and sale of contemporary visual imagery. Visitors have the opportunity to view and purchase pieces from one hundred galleries representing twelve different countries. Take in (and, if your cheque book can bear it, take home) original sculptures, limited-edition prints and photographs, and fine paintings from such Toronto hot spots as Christopher Cutts Gallery, Clark and Faria and Nicholas Metivier Gallery.  This special ten-year anniversary edition of the expo also features a variety of installations and curatorial projects celebrating the evolution of Canadian artwork—the flagship “Heartland” display reflects the growing strength and diversity of Canadian art, while the fair’s Next Lounge showcases works from cutting-edge emerging artists. Metro Toronto Convention Centre, $18; call 1 800-663-4173 or navigate here for more information.
