The North Toronto Group of Artists (NTGA) is a non-profit organization whose goal is to promote local fine artists and culturally enrich our community.
Artists range in age from 28 to 88, and all works, from painting to photography, are original. Supporting the local community is a priority for the NTGA. NTGA artists routinely donate works of art to be displayed in local shops and businesses. Our artists also make their time available to local groups to give art lectures. Many of our artists participate in the annual Yonge-Lawrence Village BIA annual “Artwalk” show, held the month preceding our Fall Show and Sale.
The purpose of the Group is to provide opportunities for local artists to display and sell their works. To that end, the NTGA holds two major annual events: a fine art show and sale in the fall, and a studio tour in the spring. The Group is run by volunteers who are also active artist members.
Admission to these shows is FREE. The NTGA provides these opportunities to view and purchase one-of-a-kind artwork from over 20 talented local artists. It gives the community a chance to meet the artists, and learn more about their work. The NTGA showcases original art in a wide range of styles from realism to abstraction in oil, acrylic, watercolour, encaustic, mixed media and photography. The Fall Art Show and Sale is held at Blessed Sacrament Church (just south of Lawrence, on Yonge Street). The Spring Studio Tour is spread throughout our North Toronto neighbourhood, in the studios and homes of the artists themselves, as well as some local retailers who donate display space to our artists.
