ARTISTS: CONNECT WITH BUYERS, SUBMIT TO ARTBOMB!
ARTBOMB is a carefully curated daily auction featuring an artwork by a rising Canadian art star. It’s like Groupon for art!
Launched on December 10, 2011 in Toronto, ARTBOMB is a brand new way for artists to expose their work to thousands of potential art buyers. ARTBOMB is a fresh approach to art buying that allows busy professionals a daily peek into a carefully selected cross-section of Toronto’s most exciting art by delivering one work into their inboxes, 5 days a week. Bidding opens at 6 am and closes at 11 pm. Subscribers bid on the work and at the end of the day, the highest bid wins the piece, which is delivered to the buyer the following week.
The artwork – including painting, prints, photography, sculpture, drawing, mixed media and video art – is designed to reflect a broad cross-section of Toronto’s most exciting talent, and is selected by Andrea Carson Barker, an expert in contemporary art and the accomplished founder and publisher of one of Canada’s most widely read culture blogs, http://www.viewoncanadianart.com. Artworks are mostly priced at under $1000. All works are delivered ready to hang.
ARTBOMB is a project by Jim Shedden, Carrie Shibinsky and Andrea Carson Barker.

There are only so many ways to make chicken breast interesting, and pan searing it with a roasted red pepper puree and warm quinoa, spinach, sunchoke and pickled ramp salad ($13) is now at the top of my list.
Seared to a salty, juicy perfection, it’s the sweet combo of the roasted red pepper puree combined with the acidity of the pickled ramps that make today’s chicken breast special exceptional. The addition of the warm quinoa/spinach/sunchoke salad not only helped me feel healthily inspired by this meal, but also brightened up the plate in colour and texture.
The next time someone tells me chicken is boring, I will site this dish and prove that sometimes chicken breast can pass the test.
The amazing Hoi-An Tang of mehoi brings her brunch themed, enamel pins to the Gladstone shop. Perfectly sized, these graphic morsels would make the perfect gift for any foodie or bacon and/or pastry lover (which we are guessing just about covers anyone and everyone). mehoi will also be in the Art Bar in December for a month-long pop-up shop.
Renee Navarro’s photography will be part of the Gladstone’s exhibit 10×10: 100 Portraits opening reception on Thursday June 28 from 7 to 10 p.m. 10×10 is a photography project celebrating Canadian queers involved in the arts. The project features 10 LGBT photographers + 10 LGBT artists creating 100 portraits.
