song_moment This installment of 'on the walls at Ingram' has us working with new off site walls! The Toronto International Art Fair is here - taking place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from 3-6 October. Ingram Gallery has prepared throughout the past year for our very special walls at the Fair. Incredible new works await you from Yi Song, David Robinson, Alain Bonder, Shaun Downey and all of our terrifically talented artists. This year marks the 9th year for the Art Fair, the biggest to date, with a strong lecture series and many new participants.

The week surrounding the Toronto International Art Fair has come to be known this year as Art Toronto Week. Many art and culture related events will take place in our city. To learn more about the Fair, Nuit Blanche, our newly renovated public art spaces and more, please follow this link to the Art Toronto Week hub.

> You will find Ingram Gallery on site at the Toronto International Art Fair (Booth 109) in the first aisle on the East hand side as you enter the Fair. We look forward to seeing you there.

Ryan Price Banner
RYAN PRICE  '...draw while...'  October 18 - November 6

Many are familiar with Price's meticulous and technically skilled drypoint engravings. '...draw while...' takes us from the press to the wall as Price's characters break free of the constraints of the small and exacting to revel unconsciously in the roots of liberal mark making.

'... draw while ...' opens at 11am on Saturday, 18 October. Ryan Price and family will be at the gallery between 2-4pm to meet and greet with gallery friends. Please make a note in your calendar as this exhibition marks the first time Price's drywall works are available to collectors through a solo exhibition. Price exhibited '...draw while...' publicly in 2006 at the Macdonald Stewart Art Centre in Guelph, Ontario.

October's 'beyond the gallery walls' feature takes us to the Mood Disorders Association of Ontario (MDAO) and their annual fall event, Touched by Fire. Ingram Gallery's Jeff Duns, as a member of the Touched by Fire board, has been busy at work raising awareness for the association and their eve
nt taking place at the Gladstone Hotel November 13-15th, 2008. TBF
Please note that this is not a fund-raiser for MDAO. Rather, it is an opportunity to celebrate the creative works of individuals with mood disorders. This event is an extraordinary showcase for individuals to display their resilience, their passion, and above all, their creativity.


During a recent trip to an artist's studio, as we drove through the Ontario countryside rich and ripe with the fall harvest, we had the following thought:

From creation, to exhibition, to the pleasure of viewing works at home or in public spaces, great art feeds the mind, body and soul in ways not unlike that of a fresh, locally sourced home cooked meal.

From all of us at Ingram Gallery we wish you an art filled October and a very happy harvest.

See you at the Fair!
