Toronto-based Angell Gallery opened in April 1996 with a mission to support both emerging and mid-career artists known for taking risks in their work, while challenging the critical norms of art making in contemporary culture. Fifteen years later, the gallery maintains this high standard and continues to push boundaries and challenge both its artists and patrons.
Angell Gallery artists are known for their unique techniques that defy set genres of production, straddle many mediums and produce fantastically exciting results. Located in the heart of the Art & Design District of Toronto, Angell Gallery houses 4,000 sq ft. with three exhibition spaces and a room dedicated exclusively to video art.
The gallery's programming showcases artists working in a variety of mediums such as sculpture, painting, video, photography, digital media and has established a reputation for forward-thinking, unconventional, and intelligent exhibitions. Our roster of celebrated artists hail not only from our own creative city, but from around the world with Angell Gallery representing artists from Montreal, London, NY and Berlin. Whether from Toronto or abroad, Angell Gallery artists enjoy great media attention and critical reviews in publications such as ARTFORUM, NY Times, LA Times, ARTnews, Art in America and Modern Painters Angell Gallery is not content to simply show its artists in a gallery setting.
Our belief in our artists and our desire to expose their work to a worldy audience has led Angell Gallery to establish a consistent and growing presence on the international art fair circuit. As a result, the gallery has succeeded in widening its collector base, and has drawn the attention of top international curators and art professionals.
