A nod to quality design

July 5, 2021

We are embarking on one more week of TOAF60! Hosting a 10-day in-person Fair is new to all of us, and it has allowed us to get to know the participating artists better with the time and space to have deeper conversations. If you have missed connecting with artists directly, make time to visit us at stackt market this week. The artists have made the effort to be on-site, and they are excited to be showing their wares in person. Make sure to show them some love! 

Today and tomorrow, we give a nod to everything craft and design. Our friends at Harbourfront Centre will take you on a tour of their Artists-in-Residence program on Instagram TV. Get to know more about the artists through the Carefully Crafted curated collection by Melanie Egan and Jillian Barreca of Harbourfront Centre Craft & Design.

Please continue to engage with us and our artists on social media using the hashtag #TOAF60, and keep an eye on our Instagram for more Studio Tours and Artist Chats! If you have missed any of our programming during the weekend, you can check them all out on Instagram TV and Youtube.
