Accessible Art at Canvas Gallery

Many things make a house a home. It's all in the details, such as a cozy blanket thrown on the couch, a scented candle burning on the table, or a dog-eared book on the bedside table. Each of these items create a sense of personality in your home. One of the most effective ways to say "home" is to surround yourself with art that you love. Bare walls indicate that the resident is still developing a relationship with the space, as it can be a long process to find just the right piece of art.

There is a great place in Toronto, Canvas Gallery, that features accessible art for your walls. I say that it's accessible because the gallery isn't an intimidating space and clients are free to casually browse through the plethora of paintings and photography.

I have purchased two small, affordable pieces from Canvas Gallery, and both experiences were comfortable and painless. The website features an extensive Artist Catalogue, or you can visit the gallery in person at 950 Dupont Street in Toronto (within G.H. Johnson's).
