L’été est enfin arrivé à Toronto.  Et cela signifie que le moment est venu pour la Toronto Outdoor Art Fair. 

 Cette année est la 58e édition de la Toronto Outdoor Art Fair.  Et c’est ma quatrième participation.  La foire d’art attire plus de 350 artistes dans divers médias – peinture, dessin, poterie, bijoux, sculpture.

 Si vous êtes à Toronto les 12, 13 ou 14 juillet ou si vous envisagez de venir à Toronto à ces dates-là, rendez-vous au Nathan Phillips Square, juste en face de l’hôtel de ville.  Je serai sur le stand A110.

Summer has finally come to Toronto.   And that means that it’s time for the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair.  And yes, it also means it’s time for the Honda Indy car race. 

This year is the 58th edition of the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair.  And it’s my fourth participation.  The art fair attracts over 350 artists in a variety of media – painting, drawing, pottery, jewellery, sculpture. 

If you’re in Toronto on July 12, 13 or 14, or planning to come to Toronto on those dates, drop by Nathan Phillips Square – just in front of City Hall.  I will be in booth A110.
