Michael is a fraud! He pretends to know about Northwest Coast jewellery but really he doesn't. He advertises and sells jewellery as "Haida" but the work is actually carved by a well known Coast Salish artist which he does not give credit to. This is blatantly disrespectful to Aboriginal artists and their varying and unique cultures. Please don't support this... More

Purchased artwork from this gallery in August 2012, who arranged shipment overseas. The shipment was lost! The gallery apparently insured the artwork, but were not forthcoming with reimbursements. Was treated with contempt and ignored because I was located on the other side of the world. Luckily the purchase was made on my credit card, and the credit card company are... More

After passing by this gallery everyday, I decided to visit it on my day off. Best decision ever. I expected to be in and out within 15 minutes, but i just couldn't leave. There are ample amounts of gifts to fit any price range and large paintings that are quite the investment. The inviting staff were glad to answer my... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
