If Eastern (Toronto) art is your thing, you may want to check out the Riverdale Art Walk going on today and tomorrow. Don’t let them scattered showers stop you from enjoying almost 100 RAW artists spread out through the Queen Street East district. With a multitude of shops, galleries and parks between Carroll Street and Leslie, RAW has never been better. Artists will also be featured at Jimmie Simpson Park at Booth Avenue, with a live mural demonstration on Carlaw Avenue.
Official RAW hours are 11-6pm but some galleries will be open later than usual on Saturday night. There’s a map (pdf) of all the gallery spaces and more information at the Riverdale Art Walk website. Due to the possible weather negativity, bring some protection so you don’t come out sodden.
