So, we have opened our doors for business and things are looking really nice so far. Art History is your one stop shop for everything new and old that will make you fall head over heels in love! Our shop’s purpose is to provide a space for art, vintage furniture and some small housewares at reasonable prices because we think that everyone should be able to own things that they adore. The main shop space is a well curated mix of contemporary artist works and vintage items, and we’ve just made a few changes to the back end of the store that will allow us to dedicate space solely to contemporary art by local, national and international artists, showing on a somewhat loose bi-weekly basis. Our goal is to provide a less formal setting for showing and selling artwork as well as to showcase the beauty and artistry often overlooked in older items- a sort of gallery shop without the gallery.
We are located in the gallery district of West Queen West in Toronto and as artists ourselves there is no separating the art from what we do. So that being said, we aren’t going to try to separate anything and instead we’ll bring it all together! Contemporary art works, artist multiples and artist books coupled with really special vintage/salvaged pieces hand chosen for Art History.
Come by and say hi, take a look around and find something you love! And remember, we are always bringing in new (and old) things so check in often!
See you soon!
