Calling all art enthusiasts! Artist Project celebrates its 10th year with a four-day art fair hosted from February 23–26, 2017 at the Better Living Centre, Exhibition Place, Toronto. The overarching theme of this year’s fair is Birthday Party, connecting attendees with collectors, curators, gallerists and designers to revel in shoppable artwork from more than 250 contemporary Canadian and international artists.

Tickets still available for Opening Night Party Tonight!

This is a great art party! Come meet and buy directly from 250+ artists. Celebrate a night of art, installations, cocktails, small bites and live music at the Early Access Preview (5–10PM) and Opening Night Party (7–10PM).

Music provided by DJ Lissa Monet and DEEJAY_LING, an art performance by OCAD U’s Kevin Holliday, and a vocal performance by singer/songwriter Alexandria.

The Opening Night Party is one of Canada’s most popular art world soirées. Guests will be greeted by a brilliant watercolour mural, The Tenth Tide, an impressive 100-foot-long front entrance installation by L.A.based artist Tracy Hiner (see teaser at left). Bold in color and texture, the feature installation explores how paint interacts with itself and the swirling beauty it creates. The scale of the artwork allows the viewer to intimately experience the work’s depth. Tracy has created an exceptional welcome to the creativity which beckons beyond. Additional new and electrifying artists include printmaker Shogo Okada, painter Mel Gausden, photographer Simon Willms, painter Benny Bing, and textile artist Sam Pedicelli.

The Artist Project continues this weekend until Feb 26th. For tickets and information on this Art Fair, check out the website:
