Square Foot Show at AWOL Gallery

The Square Foot Show ends this Saturday September 6th. There's still plenty of time to get down to 100A Ossington and have a look. I entered 3 paintings above this year and you can pick them up for just $200. each. Here are some interesting facts about this very popular show in Toronto.

AWOL Gallery presents Square Foot 2009. The Square Foot show has become one of the foremost community art events in Toronto. With each artist creating work in a 12x12 inch format, the show is hung in a grid forming an installation of overwhelming proportions. Each year the Square Foot Exhibition has grown in scale and reached a larger audience. This year’s exhibition will be held at a larger off site venue. Located at 100a Ossington, just steps from AWOL Gallery. This 2,500 square foot room will be transformed into AWOL’s largest square foot show to date, showcasing over 700 artists from Canada, United States, United Kingdom, Japan and Australia.

Square Foot brings together artists from a variety of backgrounds, disciplines and career levels and offers their work at $200 per piece. It provides the established artist a distinctive group show opportunity and is also a venue for emerging artists to have their work discovered by galleries and collectors alike.

The AWOL Gallery Square Foot Show has spawned numerous imitation shows in Toronto and throughout North America. However it has been AWOL’S commitment to a non-juried, affordable, international community exhibition that has continually kept the show unique, fun, and versatile.

AWOL Gallery and Studios is celebrating its 10th Anniversary of showcasing Contemporary Art in Toronto.
