In a nod to local Junction artists, neighbours as well as the customers of Baker's Dozen Donuts across the street, Telephone Booth Gallery will be hosting part-two to last years exhibition 'Local Call'.
Aptly titled 'By the Dozen', the exhibition includes the works of eight local Junction artists. As one of the first shows to open Junction Kick-Off Week, please come by and help get the festivities started!
On a ironic side-note, it appears as though Baker's Dozen may have just closed its doors for good, slated to become a new Tim Hortons?
By the Dozen - part II of Local Call
@ Telephone Booth Gallery
3148 Dundas St. West
Exhibition: Jan. 16th - Feb. 17th, 2013
Opening reception: Tonight! Friday, Jan 18th 6-9pm
By the Dozen is Part II of our 'Local Call' exhibition last year.
This diverse exhibition features established artists that live or work in The Junction or Junction Triangle neighbourhoods of Toronto. the idea for this neighbourly exhibition stemmed from a conversation with two local artists that happened to pop into the gallery one Saturday afternoon, David McClyment and Tim Whiten. The exhibition provides the opportunity to bring together the local arts community and exhibit some of the amazing talent in the area. By the Dozen also provides the opportunity to highlight the neighbourhood's 'small-town' community feel within the city, including a nod to the regulars at the Baker's Dozen coffee shop located directly across from the gallery.
Including works by:
Michael Antkowiak, Clint Griffin, Daniel Hutchinson, Linda Martinello, Anders Oinonen, Luke Painter, Orest Tataryn and Badanna Zack.
