Winner of Best of Exhibition at Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition 2015
On July 8-10, 2016, the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition celebrates 55 years. We have been an integral part of Toronto’s cultural landscape since 1961, when the Koffler family founded the fair and established a much-needed entrepreneurial platform for independent artists to showcase their work. Fifty-five years later the vision and legacy of the fair continues to endure.
Since its inception, the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition has partnered with the City of Toronto, private businesses and patrons of the arts to bring an engaging and exciting selection of visual art to our community.
We have established a very rich tradition of celebrating artistic excellence and providing a highly accessible venue for artists and the public to meet face-to-face. Every year, we distribute $20,000 cash and in-kind awards to participating artists. These awards are generously donated by a passionate circle of board members, patrons and community partners who truly believe in advancing the arts and artists’ careers. To honour our legacy, we are thrilled to announce a special award of $5,500 to the winner of Best of Exhibition for our 55th anniversary.
Artists who apply to exhibit at the 2016 Exhibition are automatically entered into our awards competition. Professional jurors, comprised of industry leaders, will select the participating artists for the upcoming 2016 Exhibition. Award winners will be selected by a panel of critically acclaimed judges, on site during the event. The winners are granted direct entry into 2017 Exhibition.
We will be announcing the rest of our awards shortly. Sign up for our newsletter to stay in the loop and receive all the exciting news and partnerships that we will be offering you.
Applications are open until Sunday, March 6.
