Young talent often finds it hard to align with a gallery, and find patrons (many of whom are always on the lookout for new artists). Phil Anderson, director of Gallery 1313 in Toronto, has curated the works of more than 50 such emerging artists for the gallery’s first ever exhibit of future stars. It’s on now through Jan. 22. Oh the passion!
