Creative Ramblings #9: Love Art Toronto 2014

This past Thursday I traveled to Toronto to attend Love Art Toronto. Viva Vida Art Gallery exhibited my work at this first ever edition of the Affordable Art Fair in Canada, they also brought the works of Marie-Pierre Daigle, David Kelavey, Ok Hee Kim, Martine Legrand, Gordon Pym, SooZ (Susan Jillette) and Bev Wight. In this week's episode of Creative Ramblings I take you on a tour of this amazing art event.

Love Art is the Canadian edition of the globally successful Affordable Art Fair, which was launched in 1999 by Will Ramsay. The mission of the fair is to make the process of buying artwork welcoming, fun and engaging.

The show opened on Wednesday May 7th with a private viewing. After a full fair day on Thursday the Love, Life and Sketch Charity Gala opened at 6pm for a night in support of the transformative power of the arts! Sketch is a community arts development initiative in Toronto engaging young people who are homeless and living on the margins. A portion of the proceeds of the night were donated to this amazing cause. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday there were a host of different talks and tours as well as an ever changing display of amazing and beautiful artwork by 40 different galleries from all across the world.
