The launch of Winged Canvas Art Gallery in early 2017 celebrated the opening of a new exhibition space for the York Region art community and a welcoming place for art lovers to purchase authentic, original pieces created locally. Our mandate as Markham’s Art Hub is to advocate for artistic literacy in the suburbs by making art easily accessible to everyone. Winged Canvas is starting an Art Movement by building a space where artists can connect, create, and share their work with the community.
Finally contemporary art has come to the suburbs. Highlights from the Group Show "the Art of Abstraction."
We’re a group of Art Nerds here at Winged Canvas. We eat, sleep and breathe art. That passion is pretty apparent - as soon as you walk in you'll see our walls covered with all kinds of artistic styles to showcase the creativity that abounds.
At the Winged Canvas Art Gallery, we exhibit original work and reproductions created by local artists in York Region and GTA, our art-obsessed staff and our students. Explore our permanent collection featuring the colourful and provocative artwork by Winged Canvas founder Fei Lu. Fei’s work conveys a touch of humour, hinting at a deeper story behind each piece.
All artwork (both original and reproductions) by Winged Canvas staff & teachers are available for purchase.
