Here we are in the dog days of summer and time is flying by. There are so many things going on in the city it is hard to keep up. Before you know it we will be bundling ourselves up to brace the cold and staying inside more and more.
I suffer from FOMO – Fear of Missing Out – so I try to keep a tab on things going on in our exciting city Toronto. An easy way to do this is to follow city blogs and TO tweeters. You can hear about the big events on main stream media but their coverage is usually after the event happens which does not help. You need to get your finger on the pulse if you too want to make the most of the summer and not miss out! It is also a lot of fun to go to the opening night reception for an art show so you can meet the artist and hear about their work in person. Things tend to slow down in August with local galleries but there are some upcoming shows you won’t want to miss if you are a fan of art and photography.
Here are a few shows for all tastes:
Andy Warhol Revisited – July 1 – December 23 at the Revolver Gallery, 77 Bloor St. W. https://warholrevisited.com/ #WarholTO
