Get your holiday shopping finished (or started) this week at the Art Connections Fine Art Exhibition and Sale. This event will return to Metro Hall Rotunda on Friday, December 14, 10:00 am-3:00 pm. For some of the participants, this will be their first time to showcase their work in Canada.
The Art Connections program helps foreign-trained professional artists pursue their careers in Toronto. Participants are placed in a customized Toronto School of Art professional studio program where they learn how to market their art practice and apply to galleries, exhibitions and competitions. City staff help participants create job search tools such as biographies and portfolios, and connect them to art organizations and employment supports.
The City works in collaboration with the Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council, Neighbourhood Arts Network, Toronto School of Art and various community art organizations to provide participants with direct access to professional networks and career opportunities.
