Hey Folks, we’re in a bit of a hurry today – darn long weekends. Anyway we thought we’d show you the newest model suite at Library District. It’s on the 10th floor, is 777 SQ. feet and hails from parts unknown, er Toronto.

Toronto’s art scene is thriving and we recently got a chance to see just how thriving it is at the Walnut Studios Spring Fever Art Show and Sale.

Tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood behind King and Niagara, Walnut Studios is an artist’s playground. The studio is housed in an old converted warehouse and is home to more than 40 talented established and up and coming artists. Members of the public got an opportunity to enter the artists world and experience the creative process when the studio opened it’s doors last weekend at it’s Spring Art Show and Sale.

What better way to welcome Spring than with 300 pieces of stunning art from Toronto’s established and up and coming independent artists?

This is definitely not your ordinary art show. The Walnut Studios Spring Fever Art Show and Sale will give you a chance to experience art in the “raw” by viewing original works of art in the artist’s creative space.

You’ll get to see the paint filled palettes, the preliminary sketches, the dusty work benches, and the splashes of colour on the floor!  You’ll also get to meet the artists themselves, hear their stories and discuss the creative process.

The festivities begin at noon with an open house followed by a reception at 7pm to 11pm with a cash bar and live Dj’s spinning tunes throughout the night.

On display will be an eclectic and diverse blend of art including painting, fashion, jewellery, photography, drawing, mixed media, sculpture, film and more.

To top it all off, you’ll able to purchase and walk away with the original works of art for yourself and your digs.

So if spending a day with Toronto’s local and independent talent in a beautifully renovated vintage building in the heart of the King West sounds like your thing, then mark your calendar for May 12th!


What do a condo developer and a chocolate maker have in common? At first glance, not very much. But on a recent visit to SOMA chocolate at King and Spadina, we discovered that we both share a love and appreciation for King West and its history and heritage.
