The More is More Collection Launch

March 10, 2010, 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Gallery TPW, 56 Ossington Avenue
Toronto, M6J 2Y7

Join Gallery TPW and Circuit Gallery on March 10th at an informal reception to launch The More Is More Collection – a new opportunity for collecting affordable art on-line. Take advantage of this one night only event to meet the artists and view the entire collection in person and learn more.

The More Is More Collection is a must-have selection of witty and conceptual prints by celebrated Canadian artists. Both intelligent and visually compelling The More Is More Collection is a whimsical assortment of constructed images documenting fake rocks, obsessive collections, spontaneous photographs and a cat implicated in a conceptual art crime.

All of the photographs in The More Is More Collection are exclusively available for purchase online through the Circuit Gallery website and are available as 16″ x 20″ prints at a very wallet friendly $120. Proceeds from this collection will help support Gallery TPW’s programming.

“We are really excited to be partnering with Gallery TPW and supporting their programming mission,” says Susana Reisman, Circuit Gallery co-director. “We have a solid infrastructure that can both help in raising funds for Gallery TPW and in making available, indeed accessible, some great artwork.”

According to Gary Hall, Gallery TPW Executive Director, “Artist-Run Centres have been at the forefront of democratizing art since the 1970’s. The partnership with Circuit Gallery makes sense – their system is convenient and affordable and I think it has great potential to introduce the pleasures of art collecting to a much larger segment of the population. We’re pleased to have such an impressive selection of artists participating in this new venture. Most of them had exhibitions at Gallery TPW at important stages of their careers and many of them have created unique works available only in The More is More Collection.”

Simply order online and prints will be delivered directly to your door within a few days.

Artwork available includes special editions by Dean Baldwin, Nadia Belerique, Cecilia Berkovic, Diane Borsato, FASTWÜRMS, Micah Lexier, Kelly Lycan, Annie MacDonell, and Lindsay Page.

The More Is More Collection, Gallery TPW And Circuit Gallery Partner To Offer Affordable Art

Toronto, ON – December 17, 2009 Circuit Gallery and Gallery TPW are pleased to announce the launch of The More Is More Collection, an innovative fundraising enterprise for the artist-run centre.

Toronto’s Gallery TPW is an artist-run center that has played a significant role for over thirty years in supporting both contemporary Canadian and International artists, working in still and moving images, and developing audiences through its gallery exhibitions, online programming, public events, and promotional activities. Circuit Gallery is an innovative web-based gallery whose mission is to make high-quality contemporary art more accessible by making it more affordable.

The two galleries have joined forces to offer a series of very affordable limited editions drawn from the work of past exhibiting artists, members of the Board, and friends of Gallery TPW.

Artwork currently available includes special editions by Nadia Belerique, the FASTWÜRMS, Micah Lexier, Kelly Lycan, and Annie MacDonell. New additions to this collection by Dean Baldwin, Cecilia Berkovic, Diane Borsato, and Lindsay Page will be added in the near future.

All of the photographs in this collection are exclusively available for purchase online through the Circuit Gallery website – www.circuitgallery.com/tpw – and are available as 16″ x 20″ prints at a very wallet-friendly $120.

“We are really excited to be partnering with Gallery TPW and supporting their programming mission,” says Susana Reisman, Circuit Gallery co-director. “We have an solid infrastructure that can both help in raising funds for Gallery TPW and in making available, indeed accessible, some great artwork.”

According to Gary Hall, Gallery TPW Executive Director, “Circuit Gallery has created a hassle-free system for expanding our affordable art program with year-round on-line sales in aid of our fundraising goals.”

An exhibition and reception to mark the launch of this new collaboration is planned for early 2010 at Gallery TPW.
