Thematically inspired by our artists' works which have been recently featured on book covers, the exhibition will take place in both our north and south galleries.

We will also introduce new titles in Canadian Art. Two new favourites just in: The Nude in Modern Canadian Art 1920-1950 (Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, 2009) and The Automatiste Revolution: Montreal, 1941-1960 (Douglas & McIntyre, 2009).

We love artful and art-filled books!

Yorkville Art Walks

The Yorkville Art Walk was created in 2001 as an opportunity for all to enjoy the diversity, dynamism and history of the Yorkville Galleries and their historically significant neighbourhood. The unique architecture and the history of Toronto's very own counter culture movement make Yorkville where it's at! More than ten galleries host the Yorkville Art Walks by staying open until 8pm the first Thursday of every month. These free events, led by professional docents, have been well attended and enjoyed by art lovers from around the world for nearly a decade. Please look for our ongoing program in the Arts section of the 'Globe and Mail' the Saturday prior to the walk for more information.

Yorkville Art Galleries: Toronto's largest gallery district, all within walking distance. Enjoy contemporary and historical work by emerging and established Canadian, International and Indigenous artists.

We look forward to seeing you on the Yorkville Art Walk! Art Walks ahead in Winter/Spring 2010: are on February 4, March 4 and April 1.

A new year sees new works arriving daily. Whether fresh from Sharon Okun (above left) before returning to her studio in Italy or from Rachel Berman's (above right) studio in the heart of downtown Toronto -- frequent visits to the gallery in the weeks ahead are a must.
