Combining two of my passions, art and motorcycles, the gallery is collaborating with TMFF for a brief 4 day event; don't blink! The Toronto Motorcycle Film Festival, one of only two in all of North America, is back for its third year with a brand new group of international films that aim to showcase universal stories told through the lens of motorcycling. Meet attending filmmakers, members of the TMFF judging panel, and other motorcycle and film enthusiasts and help us celebrate.

We believe that some motorcycles are works of art and deserve to be showcased as such.

On view, stunning motorcycles from custom builders like Walt Siegl, Rough Crafts, MotoVida, and Time Machine will be complemented by artworks by leading contemporary artists: Matthew Brooks (Montreal), Dean Drever, Scott Everingham, Freddy Fabris (Chicago), Joe Flemming, Martin Golland (Ottawa), Catherine HeardSimone Jones, Guillaume Klootier (Montreal), David Kramer (NYC), James Lahey, Clint Neufeld (Saskatchewan), Erik Olson (Germany), Rajni Perara, Jamesie Pitseolak (Dorset), Jon Sasaki, Michael Simon, Jay Soule (aka CHIPPEWAR)Richard Storms and more, alongside vintage works by Danny Lyon (USA), Robert Mapplethorpe (USA) and Richard Prince (USA).

I would like to thank all the artists and the galleries lending works to the exhibition.

It's an event you don't want to miss.

Passed hors d'oeuvres, beer, and cider will be served.
