We want to thank everybody that came out to the Opening of SAVE ME on June 27, 2013!
Was an amazing party, lots of great feedback, and a righteous launch for our new charity, Artists Renaissance Kensington!
The exhibition will close July 11, 2013. Please feel free to come by before then to check out the art!
The 185 Augusta Collective would like to invite you to join us for the Opening Night of our next exhibition – “SAVE ME.”
Save Me is a group art show at 185 Augusta in Toronto’s Kensington Market to support the preservation of Kensington’s unique culture.
Currently several major developments are poised to drastically change the market. Save Me will show case a collection of original artwork made by artists living in or inspired by the neighbourhood with proceeds going towards establishing a trust for the preservation of Kensington Market.
This exhibition will be a landmark event for Kensington Market. Our goal is to begin a fund that will eventually be used to acquire property in the Market dedicated to live-work spaces for artists. Our response to the threat of an increased “big box” presence along the periphery of Kensington is a long-term vision for affordable housing for creative individuals and groups within the Market. In this sense, we aim to not only preserve the culture of creative production and living that is a foundation of the Market’s character, but to protect the affordable housing options for artists and designers.
More information about this initiative will be available in near future!
