Art is returning to East Lynn Park this weekend, Sept. 16 and 17.

The Danforth East Community Association’s ninth-annual Danforth East Arts Fair runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the park at 1949 Danforth Ave. both days and will feature live music, food, and art across multiple mediums.

Drawings, acrylics, ceramics—whatever form the art takes, all the works on display share certain qualities, volunteer and artist Julie Glick suggests.

“We want everything to be very individual and handmade,” she said.

Dave Rheaume

“Le Parc Monceau” by Dave Rheaume will appear at the fair.

The filmic and often-wintry scenes depicted in Dave Rheaume’s award-winning acrylic paintings reflect his experience as a television director and editor.

Mika Sato

Mika Sato combines plants and pottery in her living works, which have been featured in the Toronto Star and sprouted in numerous art shows.

Kaia’tanoron Dumoulin

A repeat volunteer at the annual fair, Julie Glick is showing oil paintings and clay work. Her variegated stone balloons are large porcelain forms perched atop steel rods, a way to bring art to the garden.

Maria Drazilov

Summer’s Eve by Maria Drazilov.

Some photographers try to capture a moment exactly, whereas multi-disciplinary artist Maria Drazilov doesn’t shy away from digital alteration. Rather, she creates new pixel paintings in the process.
