Is this the new Red Light district in Toronto? Hardly. Well…
But the opening party of NSC(Neubacher Shor Contemporary)- The Venue, was a clear indication that something very cool is happening in the art gallery world in Toronto.
Anya Shor and Manny Neubacher, art experts, gallery owners and otherwise known as The Art Stylists have collaborated with Eatertainment to create this amazing gallery and event space. It’s fortunate when you find an old building like this and can turn it into something amazing. When they found it, “it was some sort of storage warehouse,” said Anya, who also mentioned that she wanted to do more research on its history.
“The collaboration just came together one day when Manny and Anya approached me with the idea” said Sebastien Centner of Eatertainment. “Using the space for events after gallery hours just made sense” said Anya. And I have to agree. Imagine having your wedding reception in a beautiful gallery surrounded by the cream of Canadian artists. And with one of my fave artists, Thrush Holmes as a new addition to their roster, you can’t argue.
The opening was by far the event to kick off the spring party season. Food was yummy with drinks flowing on through the night. Morgan Shim provided the cool tunes. There were tons of celebs, artists and fashion designers. We bumped into Bruno Billio, – artist extraordinaire, Leah Bazian– fashion designer, Glen Baxter – reporter, and lots of socialites and models. I was having too much fun to take everyone’s picture, but here are a few:
NSC – The Venue is now open to the public Wednesday to Saturday 11 – 5pm, at 5 Brock Ave. just north of Queen St. W.
You’re invited to visit every Saturday during April for a celebratory tour and cocktail.
