A big opportunity for a small art gallery in Guelph.
Lalani Jennings Contemporary Art has won Art Toronto's 'Next Space' contest, allowing them a space at Canada's biggest art fair, Art Toronto from Oct. 27 to 30.
The contest was open to galleries and curators that have been open for less than two years.
Art Toronto said it's an effort to give young and developing galleries opportunities to show art to Toronto's audience of over 15,000 art lovers, collectors and philanthropists.
"Our selection for the fair cannot be understated," said Ross Jennings, co-owner of Lalani Jennings Contemporary Art. "It is a huge opportunity for us as an incredibly new gallery to be able to showcase our programming alongside the best galleries and artists in the country."
Lalani Jennings will have a free 100 square foot exhibition space at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre at the art fair.
They will showcase work from Guelph-based artist Michael Thompson, as well as Victoria-based ceramic artist Sarah Greaeme.
