From your moment of arrival to the minute of departure, imagination will fill your space between reality and unreality
Says Marina Malvada, the force behind the Toronto chapter:
The internationally renowned, Society for Art of Imagination is proud to present their newest branch, The Canadian Society for Art of Imagination, at our inaugural event, the Toronto Art for Peace Exhibition. The exhibition, which runs from May 22nd to June 4th at Moniker Gallery in the heart of Toronto’s Fashion District, includes overt 60 artists from Canada, the US, and abroad. We are very fortunate to have works by H.R. Giger, Alex Grey, and Brigid Marlin, the founder of the Society who perfected her technique while studying under Ernst Fuchs.
The opening event, on Thursday, May 22nd from 6 to 10 p.m. at 452 Richmond Street West (West of Spadina), will feature a dazzling array of talent and expressive imagination. DJ Nicodemus Natas Exton will set the mood with his fantastic electro funk/fusion, and as usual, Moniker will have an attractively staffed cash bar. Mark your calendars; this will be a night to remember!
For those who enjoy a nice cup of tea with a side of witty remarks, The Canadian Society for Art of Imagination is hosting afternoon tea at the gallery on Saturday, May 31st from 1 to 5 p.m, followed by cocktails and speeches from 5 to 8 p.m. For an opportunity to peruse the artwork at a leisurely pace, and have a chat with some of the society’s founding members, come in on the 31st.
The exhibition was organized by the artists and society pillars, Marina Malvada, Bhat Boy, Russ Paquette and president, Jean Pronovost. A portion of the proceeds from art sales will go back to the society, and to Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders for their great work helping people in areas where war has cost them too much. We hope that you will come out and give your support to our wonderful new society and to this excellent cause.
