Love Art Fair

Toronto welcomes its very first Love Art Fair, a showing that offers high quality contemporary art in an upbeat and friendly atmosphere for first-time buyers and seasoned collectors alike.

Enjoy pieces from over 50 local, national, and international galleries, as well as a variety of workshops and panels discussions. Give yourself at least 40-minutes to an hour to peruse the thousands of original paintings, prints, sculptures, and photographs all under one roof ranging in price from $100 to $10,000 (more than half are priced under $5,000). The event also includes a bar and cafe so that patrons can make a day out of getting their culture on.

In 1999, Will Ramsay founded the Affordable Art Fair in London in the hopes of making the traditional art fair more accessible to the general public. By introducing a price ceiling and the mandatory labeling of artwork, customers were able to see exactly what they could afford. The great response inspired Ramsay to explore other markets and there are now fairs taking place in 12 locations worldwide.

The Toronto event is running now until Sunday, May 11 at the Direct Energy Centre’s Heritage Court (100 Princes’ Boulevard; Exhibition Place). For more info visit: loveartfair.com/Toronto
