ART TORONTO 2013 Opening Night Preview
As Canada’s premier fair for modern and contemporary art, Art Toronto is a celebration of some of the world’s best contemporary artists and an opportunity for new artists to be discovered. Art Toronto is one of the most successful art fairs in North America and the Opening Night Preview is a not-to-be-missed event on Toronto’s cultural calendar.
This year’s Opening Night Preview takes place on Thursday, October 24th, 2013 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and offers guests exclusive access to view and purchase works at the Fair before it opens to the general public. Guests of the Opening Night Preview will also have the opportunity to socialize with artists, gallerists, collectors and art enthusiasts over cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
The Fair is now entering its 14th year and the Opening Night Preview is a unique and important benefit for the Art Gallery of Ontario. Last year’s preview raised over $275,000 (net); funds raised at the event help support the AGO’s compelling exhibition and education programs, with a portion of the proceeds going to purchase works of art at the Fair.
