We are only a month away from #TOAF61, and the excitement is building up around us.
As mentioned, for this year’s showcase, alongside the much-anticipated in-person Fair at Nathan Phillips Square, 100+ artists will join us Online Only from coast to coast and beyond our borders. We invite you to continue extending your attention and support to the Online Fair to make this experience worthwhile and exciting for all.
