This time last year I went to the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition for the first time, and I found myself there again for this year. There were a couple of sporadic down pours through out the day but lots of tents to jump under if you were with out an umbrella! Here are tents that I spent the most amount of time in….. nothing to do with the weather just on account of how much loved their work! Click on the photos for the direct link to the artists and their work.
I love these muted abstract cityscapes of Toronto by artist Man-Wai Wu.
I came across these beautiful ceramic jars with different etched patterns in them by Talia Silva. Simple and stunning. She also has gorgeous ceramics pendant lights in her portfolio.
Becky Lauzon, a glass artist. And these amazing vessels hosting avocado plants are hers. The featured image for the blog post of etched ink glass vases are hers too. Smaller items like glasses and glass sculptures are available too.
Beautifully crafted wooden utensils hand turned by Belgian native Bram D’Hoest essential for any kitchen that is always in use.
There’s something about a large portrait hanging in a room. A statement piece for sure. I love these portraits by Anthony Vandertuin he also does commissions too.
Crafted from single wood logs, these pieces are all hand turned by Wyatt Walkem. Amazing, when you consider the slim profile of majority of the objects (I thought the logs were cut and then steam bent).
An array of beautiful popsicle coloured glass bowls and urns in multiple sizes and colours by Courtney Downman.
Spectacular vivid vinyl graphics by newbie Emily Carriere to the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition.
These urban landscape canvases were definitely my favourite from the show by artist Jon Shaw. Lots of layers and detail. Love it!
Josee Savaria work combines a printed textile like work into an imaginative landscape.
So there is my round up of this year’s Outdoor Art Show! Comment below and let me know which are your favourite’s and if you went to the show.
