Three’s Company, a three-artist show, continues through the end of the year at Cobalt Gallery on Kingston Road. Streetcar track replacement is almost finished, so it’s the perfect time to check out the gallery, featuring the work of Lee Goldman, Liz Russ and Pat Leary.

Goldman’s acrylic and mixed media work combines realism with textural effects. Russ uses watercolour, printmaking, acrylic and collage to create abstracted landscapes. Leary works in many mediums, but drawings are featured at Cobalt.

To celebrate the return of full-road traffic to Kingston Road, a second artists’ reception will be held on Friday, Dec. 6, from 6 to 9 p.m. Stop by to chat with the creators and pick up a Christmas gift for the art lovers on your list.

Cobalt Gallery is at 870a Kingston Rd., at Beech, and online at

Artisans At Work is gearing up for a busy month of art, crafts, instruction and even a farmer’s market, as the creative space at Danforth and Woodbine approaches its one year anniversary.

Throughout November and December, the space hosts crafty guest vendors on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, offering locally made holiday gifts. The shop also features work from talented jewellers, sculptors, textile and fabric artists, photographers and other creative folk from East Toronto and beyond.

From 2 to 7 p.m. on Thursdays, an indoor winter farmers’ market takes over the community room. Select vendors from the Leslieville, East York, Fairmount Park and East Lynn Park markets offer goods for those who prefer to buy direct from the source.

December will feature Cabinet of Curiosities as the main group exhibition, curated by interns Vicky Li and Kate Murfin. The show’s theme is inspired by the collections of natural history, religious and historical artifacts and objects that were popular in past centuries in Europe.

Artists working in all mediums and sizes are welcome to answer the open call at, or by emailing
