Toronto Light Festival
Light infiltrates a person's physical, personal, and spiritual life in essential ways, and so the concept of artistic expression through light is both natural and seductive. Light awakes us in the morning, warms our skin, and has a powerful ability to elevate our mood and sense of well-being. Light is openness, clarity, and, ultimately, light is understanding.
This winter, Toronto's Distillery District will be stirred from its frigid hallows, and re-imagined into a spectacular extravaganza of illumination. The hope is to offer a revitalizing and fantastical escape to everyone who comes out to join in the festivity. Arta Gallery is pleased to be participating in this special event, along with Toronto artist and designer, Ryan Longo. Ryan is intrigued by the intersection of nature and technology, as nature is the perfectly-balanced machine. Using industrial technologies in his art, the natural world is evoked through modern creative tools. His light pieces are both eternal and futuristic.
Come experience and enjoy Toronto's Light Fest with us at Arta Gallery, on from February 2nd-March 12th, 2017 in the historic Distillery District. Be transported by the beauty and possibility of light this season.

On April 25th, 2015 a 7.8-magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, followed by a 7.3-magnitude earthquake just two weeks later. SunFarmer has since been actively involved in post-earthquake relief and reconstruction, providing critical electricity access to those in need.
SunFarmer has been active in Nepal since 2013 and continues to implement post-earthquake relief and reconstruction projects that provide critical electricity access to projects that support health, education, and access to water.
Solar for Nepal is a fundraising event to support farmers in rural Nepal hosted by ELSE and SunFarmer. 80% of Nepal’s citizens rely on agriculture for income - yet 8 months of dry climate limit production. With automatic, controlled irrigation via solar water pumps the length of the growing season can be doubled, and increase incomes by 100-200%. Additional to irrigation, other applications of solar water pumps include; drinking water, livestock, and fish farming. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go toward the down payments for the installation of these solar-powered irrigation systems.
For all those who support the important work of SunFarmer, come together at Arta Gallery on Wednesday, February 1st to view a private exhibition of award-winning photographer Kristin Lau's work from Nepal, participate in a photo auction, see a short documentary film screening, listen to solar leaders speak, eat, drink and celebrate our fundraising efforts this year!
