I came here on a Monday early evening. It was a small gallery with nice, aboriginal art. I browsed the gallery for a few minutes. There were paintings, sculptures and masks. I would’ve bought something but the art was wit expensive, as is expected. Although...More

One of the best galleries in the city. Every time I come in there are so many new pieces. Great collection of masks and original paintings, I especially love the Norval Morrisseaus. Can't wait to go back.

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.
