July 2, 2020

Welcome to the first day of Toronto Online Art Fair! Watch our welcome videos from the TOAF team, our chair, Alex Ciappara, and members of our founding family Tiana Koffler Boyman and Marc Boyman. We will be kicking off on Instagram Live today at 12pm with artist, designer, and all-around creative Tiffany Pratt!

Watch Our Welcome Video!

                                            TOAF Team welcomes you to this year's online edition!

We miss hosting you under the sea of white tents during this time of year at Nathan Phillips Square. Our artists have brought along a world of creativity to the online version.  Our website is brimming with spectacular new artworks and artists, and as always, there is something for everyone. With just a click of a button, you can take a piece of original artwork from the comfort of your couch!

For the next 10 days, we will be sending you daily newsletters with programming updates as well as thematic collections of artworks put together by our expert curators to pique your curiosity.

We invite you to take the time to scroll and click through roster of artists in the same way you would leisurely stroll around the tents. Email artists directly to start conversations and ask questions as you would in person. Most artists are prepared to jump on a video call with you to talk and show you the work on camera. It is going to be worthwhile! 

Together, let’s make our digital gathering as successful and exciting for our artists as our outdoor fair.
