What is the Toronto Art Blast?
The Toronto Art Blast is the city of Toronto’s first-ever city-wide open studio event. The event kicks off with a festive Opening Celebration and Preview Exhibition and is follow by three weekends of self-guided tours of artist studios and exhibition spaces throughout the city of Toronto. The event is free for the public to enjoy and artists pay a registration fee to participate. Printed guidebooks and online artist directories guide visitors to the artist studios and exhibition spaces around the city where the participating artists show. During the event, there are street signs directing the public to artist locations. The event is a great opportunity for artists and art collectors to connect one-on-one with one another in interesting and inspiring environments. Artist venues can range from home studios, outdoor venues, gallery settings, co-op spaces, cafés, restaurants, garages, back yards and other alternative exhibition spaces. Many artists serve refreshments, some give live demonstrations and some may even have live music.
