Today is "Custom Frames Toronto" Day here at Custom Frames Canada, where we love our local art galleries, as today we feature the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO).
Located in Toronto the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is one of the largest art galleries in North America. It features over 90,000 works in its collection and a physical facility of almost 600,000 sqft – not to mention some of the world's most beautiful custom frames!
AGO is currently featuring an amazing Andy Warhol exhibition (ends October 24th). The AGO describes Warhol’s work as follows:
“Featuring loans from museums and private collections in Europe and North America, Andy Warhol spans all four decades of the artist's career. Key works from Warhol’s Pop period include Marilyn Diptych (1962) from Tate Modern, 100 Campbell’s Soup Cans (1962) from Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt, and the AGO’s Elvis I and II (1963/4). Also to be included are Warhol’s experimental installations. Exploding Plastic Inevitable (1966), an immersive, psychedelic multimedia environment that involves film projections, disco balls, and the sounds of the experimental rock group The Velvet Underground, encourages audience participation, while Warhol’s Silver Clouds (1965-66) invites visitors to watch metallic pillows floating in space”.
So, the next time you’re in Toronto – make sure to check out the wonderful art exhibitions on display. Make sure to also check out the beautiful custom framing they may be using to display some of the art!
