Hot Art: Approachable Project

Reinvention by Stev’nn Hall

MARCH 3 TO 6 Two hundred independent and emerging artists gather this month for The Artist Project Toronto. Accessibility is paramount at this annual exhibition, which encourages both novices and seasoned collectors to interact directly with creators. Ask Stev’nn Hall how he achieves the mystifying effect of his photo-based works, or find out how movement informs the paintings of Lysanne Pepin. Visitors can also walk down Installation Alley to see immersive large-scale works, experience the digital revolution at the Video ArtBox new-media display, and learn what inspires participants in a series of art chat seminars. Exhibition Place, Queen Elizabeth Building; call 416-960-3680 for more information.

MARCH 4 TO 7 Fix your winter-weary gaze on some fresh artwork this month as The Artist Project Toronto returns for its third year. The contemporary art fair showcases the talents of more than 175 carefully selected Canadian and international artists. Visitors are invited to take in the large-scale sculptures and site-specific pieces comprising Installation Alley, listen to experts as part of the Art Chat series, vote for the best “Queen”-themed work of art, and generally peruse an eclectic collection of paintings, prints, photographs, glass works, digital art and more. Proceeds from the expo’s opening night preview benefit Sketch, a charitable organization that creates art-making opportunities for at-risk youth. Exhibition Place, Queen Elizabeth Building, $8 to $12 ($25 for opening night preview); call 416-960-3680 or visit here for tickets and more information.
