The Beach Guild of Fine Art was founded in 1994 by a small group of Toronto artists who all lived in the "Beach" neighbourhood of the city. Our mandate is to support each other as artists and to promote and encourage the appreciation of art in the community. Membership has grown over the years to its current 55 members.
Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography is a non-profit artist-run centre committed to photography as a multi-faceted and ever-changing art form. Founded in 1979 to establish a supportive environment for the development of photography, Gallery 44’s mandate is to provide a context for reflection and dialogue on contemporary photography and its related practices.
