The Little Art Show
Travel back in time to a night of old Hollywood glam at Toronto's infamous boutique art silent auction, the Little Art Show. At the silent auction hall, more than 100 donated pieces of compelling, original artwork capture your mind - and your imagination soars. You're enamoured with myriad pieces. Bidding begins. The excitement is palpable. You connect with the artists, explore, feel the
inspiration, engage, reflect and enjoy. Wine and food are plentiful. Prizes abound. The evening comes to a close, its vibe indelibly etched into your mind. You leave for home, a painting – or three – now yours. You smile. And feel the power of art. Little Art Show Website The Little Art Show is Toronto’s affordable boutique art auction. Original and limited edition works donated by established and emerging artists (and no bigger than 8” x 10”) are selected by jury and auctioned off at Mercedes-Benz Downtown (Dundas & River). Event proceeds fund the operations of the Artists’ Network, a dedicated member-driven not-for-profit with a mandate of supporting visual artists and their practice through a program of professional development, studio and exhibition opportunities and operates the Hang Man Gallery and the annual Riverdale Art Walk. Hosted by Maggie Cassella - a well known personality in the arts & entertainment industry both in Canada and abroad. Comedian, talk show host, writer and screenwriter, this multi-talented artist brings her unique sense of humour and musings on the art scene to the Little Art Show.
