I visited a few art galleries recently and they were all really cool.

The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery
The exhibitions they have on display right now are definitely ones you have to see in person because they’re not quite as impressive in photos. The Power Plant is right by the Harbourfront so you can skate at the Natrel Rink or even walk along the docks after. Adam and I are saving skating for Valentine’s Day so we did the latter.
Coldstream Fine Art
Kariv and Michael invited me to check out Shantell Martin’s “Drawing Toronto” exhibition so I dropped by after class last week. Shantell’s work has been featured on both Jimmy Kimmel and Elle Canada so you already know she’s pretty darn talented. They told me these canvas works were rare as she normally does installation pieces. The exhibition runs from now until March 12th if you’re interested (and it’s free).
Art Gallery of Ontario
I’d been wanting to visit an AGO First Thursdays event for awhile and I finally went this month. Tickets are only $12, beers are only $6, and appetizers are only $5. Adam and I came here once before on a regular night and only stayed an hour. We ended up staying for 3 hours this time even though we looked at the same things, probably because it was so packed. It was a sold out event so it was super busy.
We had two different people take the photo below and had a total of seven shots taken. I had my purse on the ground in all the shots so I ended up having to Photoshop it out. We’re pretty picky when it comes to our Instagrams.
