Elevator15 is about great photographic work, and the people with whom Elevator has worked with for many years. This celebration & photographic event is an opportunity to take home beautiful, valuable work at a nominal price.The event works on a 'buy-a-ticket, get-a-print’ premise. Like a draw, where everybody wins. The surprise is in which print. You really can’t lose and it will be a fun evening.
We will also be auctioning a 1/1 special edition print of Vivian Maier’s iconic self portraits.This will be the first platinum/palladium print of her work, ever; made by us (there is more info on this print on the site at the link below).
We hope you will buy a ticket and join us for this fabulous evening!

We welcome this february ‘Collective Horizons’, representing the accumulated work of five very different painters; Brian Harvey, Stewart Jones, Peter Taylor, Rob Saley and David Marshak.
Each painter has his own style and set of influences to bring to the walls. From the far-flung urban explorations of Jones and Harvey to the dense forest interiors of Taylor and Marshak and the quirky bird portraits of Saley, this show will have diversity as its cornerstone. Painters all, these artists are all committed full time to their muse. The artists are excited to show together and happy to bring some colour to the late winter grey tones of Toronto’s Distillery District.
Their opening reception will be held Thursday, February 13th from 6-10pm. We hope to see you there. Pictures of the event to follow.
