Gallery 1313, 1313 Queen ST, Toronto ON M6K 1L6

To discover curated original art;

To support and invest in emerging artists;

To see and buy something you love.

Twelve artists with different cultural backgrounds - from Saudi Arabia to India, Cuba to Venezuela, China to Canada - are featured in this multi-media exhibit. The works include painting, drawing, installation, sculpture and video. The theme of the exhibit is the intrinsic power of art to shape reality - not the power of force or argument, but of a deeper human connection - this is leverage. Creatively, the works are united by an attention to the underlying values of humanity (often obscured in modern society), and a calling up of forgotten spirituality.

This is an opportunity to see and purchase work by a diverse group of emerging artists, curated by Anne Tom Wong and organized by Emerging Young Artists (EYA). Over 30 pieces of artwork will be displayed at this exhibition, representing a wide variety of style, media and subject matter reflecting their visions of the contemporary society that is vital to our evolution as a global community.
