ALEX COLVILLE at the AGO
Opening at the Art Gallery of Ontario at the end of this month is a fantastic exhibit featuring one of Canada’s visual art icons.
Born in Toronto in 1920, Colville was a painter, printmaker and veteran who drew his inspiration from the world around him, transforming the seemingly mundane figures and events of everyday life into archetypes of the modern condition. He was made a Companion of the Order of Canada in 1982 and won a Governor General’s Visual and Media Arts Award in 2003. Book your tickets now!

TORONTO ARTS FACTS
Toronto Arts Facts gathers together key information about the arts in Toronto, compiled from a wide variety of research studies and statistical resources. This information – which falls into the general areas of the arts’ role in the economy, its impact on communities, and its place in people’s lives – was intended, at first, to provide fact-based information to arts funders and policy makers.
Toronto Arts Facts is a publication of Toronto Arts Foundation, compiled and edited by Jini Stolk, Creative Trust Fellow, with Kathleen McLeod and Kasia Gladki.
