Day 5 of #TOAF59 Register for Engaging Art Talks!

July 6, 2020

Sold on Day 4: June Tenzin, 'Cloud effects', 2020, mineral paint pigments, watercolour paper, cold press

Dear Friend of TOAF, 

One of the most rewarding experiences onsite at the square for our team is seeing those red dot stickers and empty booth walls when artists sell their entire collections! No works left to sell is the best problem to have! Here is a preview of one of those moments in Alice Gong's virtual booth. We hope to see this happening for more of our artists! 

Our artists have sold over 250 works to date, and we have raised $35,500 for our Gifts of Heart campaign. Our frontline workers are receiving their gifts as we speak and we now have more nominations than gift cards available! There's still time to donate and express your gratitude with a work of art! Learn more about Gifts of Heart and how to give.

Watch our Gifts of Heart video

We are hearing great feedback from our visitors and artists about our curated collections. Our dynamic roster of curators and artists have made discovering of art simple and inviting. We are delighted to showcase a selection of works today by the zealous Danielle Krysa of The Jealous Curator.

Take your time to go through these collections carefully and wander (virtually) around!
