Thank you for a wonderful TOAF60 ⭐

July 29, 2021

Enjoy your summer!

Here is one big heartfelt thank you to all of you who made TOAF60 online and in-person yet another stellar success for participating artists and our community! As with any event of this nature and scale, TOAF is about deep community collaboration and partnerships. We cannot possibly name every single person who has been involved but we would like to  sincerely thank all our public funders, generous donors, foundations, programming, media, and community partners, judges, jurors, speakers, committed volunteers, invested visitors, art lovers and collectors, our Board of Directors and the TOAF team. 

Special thanks also goes to the 400+ participating artists of TOAF60 whose agility, adaptability and resilience inspires our core working values, in particular during the ever-evolving challenges of the past year and a half. You are the reason TOAF exists. We are honoured that once again you welcomed us into your unique worlds of creativity and inspiration. 

As we have mentioned before, our special 60th programming will continue this year with an exhibition of past recipients of the Mayor’s Purchase Award since 1974 in 60 Works/60 Years at the Market Gallery. Stay tuned for more details coming in September.

Please fill our Visitor Survey below. The insight you provide helps us improve the ways we bring together artists and the public. You can also win a TOAF60 Merch Bundle for filling it out!

We are thrilled to see works leaving for new homes from our website even after the Fair. Keep extending the love to our artists and bring new works of art to your spaces if possible (remaining works are still available for purchase!), and share your stories with us on social media.

Finally, we leave you with two very special memories of TOAF60: the poignant and touching speech of Peter Owusu-Ansah, recipient of the Murray & Marvelle Koffler Founder’s Award, and the joy-filled and inspiring words of Carrie Perreault, recipient of Catherine Bratty Best of Art Fair Award.
