Art Toronto Pop-Up @ SBG

Art Toronto 2020 – October 28 – November 7, 2020

Noon – 6pm
Pop Up @Stephen Bulger Gallery, 1356 Dundas Street West, Toronto, ON

From October 28 – November 7, in celebration of Art Toronto 2020, five galleries from across Canada, including Michael Gibson Gallery will come together in a collaborative effort to showcase some of Canada’s best artists.  The guest galleries are designing a small-scaled art fair inside of the Stephen Bulger Gallery.  Visitors can look forward to curated collections highlighting work by represented artists and rare artworks from the secondary market.

As a special feature, the animatronic figures from Ontario Place’s decommissioned Wilderness Adventure Ride who, since meeting Max Dean, have embarked on an odyssey in search of a new home. As part of that search, these lads have rethought the photo studio in light of the covid situation. They have become aware of how vulnerable we all are yet acutely aware of our need to interact. Also our need to record and remember these challenging times and how we managed to navigate the restraints imposed on ourselves both external and internal.

Spontaneous visits are welcome, but appointments are encouraged.  Entry will be timed to every 30 minutes for groups of 1-5 persons to allow for social distancing.  We have a limit of 10 visitors in the gallery at any one time. Please call Stephen Bulger Gallery 416-504-0575 to book an appointment.  Once inside, we are able to circulate people through multiple times without the need to reverse course.

The Stephen Bulger Gallery will be adhering to the City of Toronto health guidelines and is restricting occupancy. Masks are mandatory, and the gallery will provide hand sanitizer upon entry. Prospective guests should also note that a non-contact infrared forehead thermometer scan will also be mandatory upon entry.

Please take a minute to watch THIS video demonstrating the new protocols we have put in place to ensure you have a safe visit.

We look forward to social distancing with you!
