Going once, going twice… it’s Gladstone Monday’s at ARTBOMB.
Continually supporting local artists both at the Gladstone Hotel and online with ARTBOMB, our Director of Exhibitions, Noa Bronstein, is guest curating the first Monday of every month at ARTBOMB.
ARTBOMB is a daily art auction featuring a different artwork by a rising Canadian art star. Noa’s first auction item: Eugen Sakhnenko, Toronto Reference Library #2, 2010 launched today and you can bid right here on ARTBOMB.
Stay tuned for the first Monday of the month for more of Noa’s all-knowing auction picks.
Maybe it’s just because Reggae Or Not is opening tonight on the 2nd Floor…. Okay, it’s definitely because Reggae Or Not is opening tonight–but Super Cat definitely knows how to keep it Ca(t)sual.
You can keep the Ca(t)sual felines coming tonight 7-10pm at Beth Lesser’s photo Reggae Or Not exhibit documenting the history of modern reggae music and dancehall culture in Jamaica and Toronto during the 70’s and 80’s.
We usually just show you wedding day bliss in the I Do section, but what about the whole other side of weddings–the ever-stressful wedding planning phase?
Don’t worry, we’re not going to put you into panic attack mode by showing you bride-to-be’s melting down outside florists with crumbled cake samples stuck between their fingers. We just think that everyone planning on saying ‘I Do’ should visit Toronto’s Bridal Show first.
Happening April 19-21 at the Direct Energy Centre Hall D, the Bridal Show is the perfect one-stop way to tap into some of this season’s best bridal inspirations.
Best of all, we are located just up the street from the Bridal Show! And, as one of Toronto Life’s recommended wedding venues, we’d love to tour you around our extraordinary landmark building, offering two floors of multi-functional event space that can be rented individually or in combination to suit groups of up to 500 guests. We work together with wedding couples and planners to facilitate your individual wedding day vision. Just bring us your idea: have fun, relax and let us help you make it happen.
Before you turn yourself into Bridezilla, contact Penny Rose: firstname.lastname@example.org and find out what kind of Gladstone options are out there for you.
Do you feel like textile art is following you around? That’s probably because the Toronto digital advertising company, Pattison Onestop, recently launched its Art in Transit program across 42 shopping centres across Canada.
Curated by Pattison OneStop’s Sharon Switzer, the project features looped programming on the company’s digital mall screens. Best of all, for the first exhibition, (on until January 27), Switzer turned to Helena Frei and Chris Mitchell, curators of our annual textile exhibit, Hard Twist, to find a pair of artists whose work would best suit the medium.
In the end, Helena and Chris turned to current Hard Twist participants Andrea Vander Kooij and Keiley Stewart. Keep your eyes open for Art in Transit screens across the city, and make sure you check out Hard Twist on the 3rd and 4th floors of the hotel 12-5pm daily, before it ends this Sunday, January 27.
With the 10th annual alternative design event, CUTMR starting last night, and the epic Love Design Party and CUTMR opening reception tomorrow night, things around here are as hectic as a kitten with a full roll of toilet paper.
In light of the chaos, we thought it would be appropriate to get back to our ca(t)sual roots with this amazing slow-motion flying kitten video. Here’s to slowing down, taking cat naps and getting ca(t)sual for the cat-astrophic CUTMR design event Jan 24-27.
A FREE night of installations by Department of Unusual Certainties, DJs and dancing in the Gladstone Ballroom–what’s not to love?
Saturday Jan. 26, the Toronto Design Offsite Festival Closing Party: Come Up To My Room (CUTMR) Love Design Party will be celebrating 10 years of CUTMR and the end of another exciting and inspiring week of the TO DO Festival.
Don’t let all this love pass you by.
January is pretty much synonymous with va(cat)ion. Whether you’re taking a trip somewhere special or are just happy spending time on a warm lap, we hope you enjoy it as much as these cats:
And, for all you vacation-less grumpy cats in Toronto, don’t worry, it’s going to be 12 degrees this weekend!
