Art Show Submissions

The Artists Network is committed to providing exhibition opportunities to Canadian artists. By transitioning to hybrid online and in-person shows, we have pivoted quickly to ensure artists have the best possible chance to promote and sell their work. Being a part of the Network provides you with opportunities to host solo exhibitions in the Leslie Grove Gallery, participate in open group shows and member-only exhibitions.

Given the unpredictability of 2021, we are changing some dates for our outdoor shows and adding a new show to increase opportunities to meet art lovers and collectors in person this year.

  • Riverdale ArtWalk in June: 3 days, June 18 – 20, Jimmie Simpson Park THREE DAYS
  • Riverdale ArtWalk in August: 3 days, August 20 – 22, Jimmie Simpson Park NEW SHOW
  • ArtWalk in the Square: 3 days, September 17 – 19, CF Shops at Don Mills NORTH TORONTO

Top Reasons to do Artists’ Network SHOWS:

  1. Run by artists for artists! We remember that YOU are our client!
  2. Engaging themes that challenge the artist and the viewer
  3. All exhibitions are juried
  4. Fine Art ONLY – no fine craft or functional art
  5. Our outdoor ArtWalks are consistently voted one of the best outdoor shows in Toronto; connect with over 25,000 visitors in a single weekend
  6. Hybrid show – online AND in-person expand your reach
  7. Majority of participating artists indicated overall communications and artists support “Best Ever”
  8. Intensive orientation – our goal is to help you be successful, providing you with tips for maximizing your success online and in-person including sales and marketing tips
