Camila Wong’s The Evolution of Self-Identity at the Bluffs Gallery @ The Bluffs Gallery
May 3 – Jun 28 all-day

The Evolution of Self-Identity presents art works created by Peruvian born artist, Camila Wong. Wong’s exhibit explores self-identity through the combination of themes relating to art therapy, everyday life, humour, reflection, environment and social issues. Wong’s works can be seen to depict her bold artistic style of applying heavy paint and using repetitive, expressive energetic lines and brushstrokes to create optical illusion, lively movement, harmony and unity.

The Evolution of Self-Identity was curated by María Alejandra Olórtegui Ibáñez.

Gallery City presents the Crosstown Art Crawl! @ From Mount Dennis to Kennedy Road
Jun 30 – Sep 3 all-day

Gallery City is a joint initiative of Metrolinx, Crosslinx Transit Solutions – Constructors (CTSC), the seven Eglinton Business improvement areas, and Eglinton businesses between Weston Road and Laird. To secure the art for the initiative, Gallery City has partnered with all the local non-profit arts organizations along Eglinton Avenue, including Urban Arts, NIA Centre for the Arts, Art Starts and the Artbarn School.

The original Gallery City concept was conceived in partnership between the York-Eglinton BIA and Hogtown Mascots, under the artistic direction of John Kernaghan, in 2013. It ran for approximately three months in the Oakwood and Eglinton community.

This year, Gallery City will bring together local businesses, property owners and local artists from across Eglinton. The six designated art crawls will help create Eglinton as a destination for Torontonians and tourists and invite new foot traffic along the corridor.
