As you know, we’re a big fan of Caviar20 around here. I’m always excited to see what Troy has in store and recently I’ve been drawn to some impressive works of art. The black and white pieces by Canadian artists Harold Town, Charles Pachter and Kent Monkman are of diverse subjects and styles but I think they actually look great together for today’s Friday Five!
Harold Town “Gable & Crawford” Litho, $1400
Harold Town “Yoko Ono” Litho, $1650
Harold Town “Toy Horse” ink drawing, $1500
Charles Pachter “Untitled Portrait”, $3500
Kent Monkman “Study of Apollo & Hyacinthus”, $4500
If colour is more your thing – then be sure to check out Troy’s segment on House & Home TV where he shares his advice for collecting art. Very interesting stuff (even though there’s not much white in the clip)!
I was lucky enough to spend yesterday afternoon surrounded by incredible and varied art work at Art Toronto.

If you’re in Toronto and looking for a great way to spend an hour (or many as I did!) I highly recommend a visit to this international art fair as you are sure to be amazed and inspired.
There is so much to see and a lot to take in and this week on White Cabana I will be sharing with you some of the art that really caught my attention. For now, I’ll just let you know that I was especially amused by Kent Monkman‘s The Art Game – an interactive “funhouse” at this year’s show.
The Art Game by Kent Monkman
The event is at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre and runs until October 31st. For more information click here.
