Welcome to Markham's Art Hub!

Winged Canvas is a new concept for an arts organization — an Art Hub that advocates for art literacy, challenges the traditional gallery model, and contributes to the artistic and cultural value in Ontario.

 

Winged Canvas’ mission is to advocate for art literacy and cultivate a contemporary art scene in the suburbs by supporting its many aspiring and professional artists.

Our Goal

Winged Canvas is a passionate champion for creativity. We challenge the notion of “the starving artist” by showing the world how artists and designers shape the future of humanity. We believe everyone should be able to experience the joy and power of art, whether it’s joining a class, being part of an exhibition, or purchasing artwork to enjoy. We are the tireless Art Nerds advocating for artistic literacy, leading the development of better arts education. Our goal is to cultivate a thriving contemporary art scene by helping aspiring artists, professional creatives, and art enthusiasts.

Creative Offerings

The main offerings at Winged Canvas include innovative art programs, exhibitions and art services. The Art Programs include camps, classes, parties, and workshops in local schools or with community partners in York Region. Services include in-house custom framing and commissioned artwork. The gallery gives artists an opportunity and a place to exhibit their work, while offering art enthusiasts and collectors a place to purchase art made locally. Winged Canvas is a one-stop shop for art nerds, from the fledgling finger painters to the next generation’s Vincent van Gogh!

Entrepreneurship and visual art can both be described as difficult, frustrating and risky. Visual art has a bit of a reputation for being challenging to make a living at. It’s often viewed as a hobby or side hustle — not something you can do full time. And entrepreneurship is just plain hard, with its long hours, uncertainty, and constant demands. But, as challenging as these two things are, art and entrepreneurship are bound...
