What is an “Online”Exhibit?
Due to the current global pandemic, as well as the closure of our regular gallery exhibits at Toronto’s Cedar Ridge Creative Centre (CRCC), Cedar Ridge Studio Gallery (CRSG) could not host art exhibits in the traditional way. However, our members still wished to come together and showcase our art.
Cedar Ridge Studio Gallery typically hosts two member exhibits, a CRCC student show and several artists’ exhibits throughout the year. Our mandate is to support new and emerging artists within our East Toronto community.
With many events cancelled, we have chosen to continue our Members’ Exhibit virtually online this fall. We have updated our website and added our exhibit pages, as well as an online sales area to purchase our member’s art.
Is this online show a permanent change?
CRSG made the change to a digital exhibit this fall to keep connected with our patrons and make sure our artists still had a platform to show and sell their works. We hope to keep some aspects of the online exhibits next year and beyond, but we know our home is at the gallery within Cedar Ridge Creative Centre. We look forward to being back in person with new exhibits, once permitted.
