    This building is connected to other attractions, particularly hockey hall of fame. In the winter, you may use this building as a temporary shelter from cold weather. This place is well accessible via public transportation or on foot from other attractions.

    Small jewel of an exhibit. As others said, this is in the TD Towers, which makes it near a lot of other things downtown (CN Tower, Rogers Centre, St. Lawerence Market) and so worth 30 minutes of popping in. There is no signage, so go into the building, see the few objects and paintings in the lobby of the Tower, and then go up the stairs to the mezzanine level. You will see statues depicting life and stories from 1950s to the 2020s. Worth the stop!

    Native Canadian art is certainly something o e would need to delve into in order to gain an understanding. While the galeries in Yorkville seem to specialize in high-priced canvas painting, the Bay of Spirits has prints, watercolours and originals. And, of course, soapstone carvings. The owners are very accomodating and friendly. It goes without saying that they are not pushy at all. I had a great time there and I am happy with what I chose.

    Cultural. Once a power plant, but now it offers various cultural activities. When I visited this place, there was a dj session with headphones. It was very unique experience. The view of the lake at night was great too.

    On a recent return trip I was as delighted as always by the quality of the show. Ryerson is the home of the Black Star Collection, with it's 292,000 images as well as other important archives so they have a wealth of material from which they can mount fascinating and historic shows. The current show in the main gallery features Gordon Parks, whose photo essay about poverty in Brazil was published in Life Magazine in 1961. The Centre is well worth a visit anytime.

    Before visiting the Durdy Bayramov Art Foundation I hardly knew anything about the Middle Asian art, culture and traditions. The visit to this foundation have opened the door to the whole new world of precious traditions and bright legacy. I want to share my sincere gratitude to the very welcoming staff of the Foundation that organised an amazing tour around the gallery introducing the art of Durdy Bayramov, one of the most prominent Turkmen artists! Definitely recommended!

    This was a happy surprise to find in the Distillery District. The building is so beautiful and the artwork is lit perfectly to enhance the viewers experience.

    I will be going in person to Canvas Gallery soon, but have had an experience with it through my sister who is one of the artists they feature. She is Linelle Lemoyne and is very well represented and they treat her extremely well and showcase a lot of her work. Can't wait to see what the gallery looks like in person.

    Some art galleries are stuffy. You feel like you have to tiptoe around and whisper. Abbozzo Gallery is the opposite. The Gallery feels very hospitable. The staff are young, friendly and very approachable.

    A real pleasure to spend an hour or so wandering around looking at amazing Contemporary art to add to my collection.

    This quiet, little-known Museum over the bustling St. Lawrence Market is either a Quinn quick in-and-out or a spot for serious contemplation, depending on what’s on. The current show on Toronto through the eyes of women artists is the best I’ve seen there. Although the 19th-century artists are of mostly historical interest, the works get increasingly powerful as the show’s arc bends toward the present. I’ll be returning for a longer look at pieces I particularly liked, most by artists new to me. Don’t miss the 27-minute doc on Russian-born Paraskeva Clark, who at 81 was colourful, quotable and subversively charming.

    Petroff Gallery is an easy review. The real test of customer trust is return business. Without gushing effusively about my online buying experience I would like to say that I would have no problem giving them my return business. I have only the highest praise for every element of their professional dealing and would highly recommend Petroff Gallery to anyone looking for world class art and exemplary customer service. I would like to thank Ivan, specifically, for his exceptional concern in preparing the international shipment and expediting the order in a timely manner. Much respect to all at Petroff Gallery. Congratulations on providing an ideal buying experience. Respectfully, Pep Noggle

    On my tour of the galleries in Yorkville Loch Gallery was a great surprise! Beautiful space to showcase some amazing Canadian artists. I was very impressed with the selection of current as well as historic artists. The staff were so friendly and took the time to show us some pieces from an artist we favoured. They were so enthusiastic about there family owned business and how they are represented in Winnipeg and Calgary. They have a guest book where you can sign up for up coming shows and info from the gallery. A few hours later I received an email with my own login to Loch gallery, a place to have information on who I am and which artists I am interested in.

    This is my second visit to the gallery and I am as impressed this time as I was the first visit. The paintings by Sylvia Tait are stunning-brilliant blues and their complementaries in blocky compositions. Really wonderful.
