Get contemporary with the QW Art Crawl! West Queen West is Toronto's official Art and Design District by virtue of the numerous commercial galleries, arts-and-design boutiques, and artist studios within fifteen short blocks along Queen Street West. Arts journalist, Betty Ann Jordan, will take you out and about on this walking tour, commencing with the Gladstone Hotel, an historic Victorian/turned art hotel (and cultural hub for the dynamic local arts community). Toronto’s gritty west end is home to many artist studios; you will visit the studio of internationally exhibited Ian Carr-Harris and Yvonne Lammerich.  The tour continues with stops at a handful of indy and edgy galleries and retail/design-related venues, plus the Stephen Bulger Gallery of photography. (Stephen’s bookshelf of over 3,000 titles is a must to browse and buy). Step off the beaten-track and be amazed by Graffiti Alley. Your Queen West contemporary art crawl concludes at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art.
