SAVE ME – A Group Art Show for Kensington Market




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!

“Cross My Mind” is the first single from new artist, allie. It possesses a nostalgic quality reminiscent of old school R&B and Soul. Lust, desire, and indecision are interwoven in melodic unity, creating a sound that is quintessentially allie.

Join us in celebrating the release of the video for “Cross My Mind” as well as a live performance by allie.

Growing up, seeing photographically was as simple as capturing moments or pieces of them with my eyes. Along the way I decided to go beyond taking mental images, and now I use my camera to record history, share untold stories and above all to take beautiful images.
