CONTACT-ing Danforth

Queen West West is surely the place to go for any avant garde art conoisseur, and as Leah Sandals at the National Post says "the stretch of Danforth between Greenwood and Coxwell can be sparse for the culturati".

However, amongst the social clubs and empty store fronts Danforth East has its very own burgeoning underground art movement.

List Gallery, located on the southside of Danforth between Gillard and Monarch Park, is the area's first contemporary art gallery and it's hosting a Contact Photography Festival exhibit this month called 'OH' by Donna Akrey and Janine Miedzik. Here is more info on the exhibit.

The Gallery is open Wednesday through Friday from 1 - 6 and on Sunday from 1 - 6.

As well, our very own Melanie's Bistro is exhibiting work by Frank Michael as part of Contact. His exhibit Evolutionary Revolution is a must see for anyone interested in seeing what the Berlin wall looks like now, in the 20th year since its literal destruction. I'm going, if only for a) the fact that my 13th birthday was the day the wall came down and b) Melanie's makes a mean Tandoori Wrap!
