Edward Day Gallery
Instead of sifting through unfamiliar galleries for that one special visual, consider seeking art consulting assistance from Exclusive Concierge Services. Private concierge Rosemary Muir gauges her clients’ specific artistic interests and then creates a custom itinerary. Visitors who desire a look at hip new artists might be taken for a tour of the commercial spaces along Queen Street West, such as Edward Day Gallery. Intrigued by Aboriginal works? Muir can help organize trips to the Museum of Inuit Art, McMichael Canadian Art Collection and more. With Toronto’s abundant and diverse set of galleries and museums, advice from a local expert can go a long way to alleviating stress and maximizing your art-viewing visit.
