FOR ART LOVERS
An Art Gallery that's also Community Glue
When most people think of "commercial art gallery" they tend to think of posh, exclusive, and expensive places. Winged Canvas is a commercial art gallery that is the opposite -- inviting, and community-focused. We are the first contemporary Art Gallery in Markham that hosts regular curated exhibitions dedicated to selling original art made locally. Winged Canvas Gallery is a welcoming public art space for everyone, whether you’re new to art or already an avid collector.
