Day 2 of #TOAF59
July 3, 2020
Dear Friend of TOAF,
Thank you for making the first day of Toronto Online Art Fair a wild success. In less than 24 hours, our artists have sold over 150 artworks across Canada, USA, and even as far as Japan and Hong Kong! We are so thrilled for our artists; let’s keep the buzz going!
Don't forget to tune into our daily programming. Watch Studio Tours on our IG TV, Art Talks on Zoom and Youtube, as well as impromptu live chats on Instagram with TOAF staff and participating artists!

Be sure to register for tomorrow's exciting talk about How Art Collecting Works, featuring Neil Brochu, curator of the City of Toronto Art Collection, and David Mirvish, Canadian art dealer, collector, theatre producer, and son of the iconic "Honest Ed" Mirvish. Presented by The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery and supported by Designlines Magazine.
As always, thank you for your continued support. We love seeing your #TOAF59 posts all over social media. Let's keep the momentum going!
