From Feb. 22 to March 24, Winged Canvas Art Hub in Markham invites art enthusiasts to join them for a special free exhibition, The Art of Realism.
The art hub’s aim is to create a space in the suburbs where artists can connect and show their artwork.
The Art of Realism brings together York Region and Toronto-based artists who create art in the styles of realism, hyperrealism and photorealism. The work has been described as precise, incredibly accurate, and highly detailed. Featured artists include Carmela Leone, Celia Tian, Fadwa Attyah, Fei Lu, Sabrina Cardillo and Raffi Anderian, an award-winning former illustrator for the Toronto Star.
Those interested in attending the exhibit are also invited to the opening-night party on Feb. 22 from 7 to 10 p.m. Visitors who attend the opening evening will have the opportunity to meet and talk with the artists while enjoying complimentary refreshments. The opening festivities are free but tickets must be reserved by registering online through wingedcanvas.com/events.
