Hometown Tourist: 1st Thursdays at the AGO

Last night, I was lucky enough to attend 1st Thursdays at the Art Gallery of Ontario. Each 1st Thursday will have a different focus, with an artist on hand to discuss their works and will incorporate live musical performances, art classes, drinks and more. The inaugural edition featured artist Evan Penny's exhibition, Re Figured. Penny explained, “I try to situate my sculpture somewhere between the way we perceive each other in real time and space and the way we perceive ourselves and each other in an image.” For me, this provided an entirely new perspective on Penny's exhilarating works. The night also featured a live performance by Bahamas in Walker Court. This sold out event was well worth the $10 ticket, and is definitely something that should not be missed.
