100 Arthur Street
May 26, 2018Saturday: 12:00pm - 5:00pm
Established in 1901, the Gault building, a strong example of the Richardsonian Romanesque style, was constructed for the Gault Brothers Company, a dry goods wholesaler. In 1986, the space transformed into Artspace, a multi-disciplinary arts centre that houses a number of arts organizations. The tour conveys these two histories, beginning in the lobby with a walk around the perimeter, showcasing the Little Library, Window Gallery, and the drayway. Next, the guide leads you through the building, concluding with a visit to an actual working studio that specializes in etching and engraving. Limited edition prints will be on display and for sale. On your way out, stop by our participating galleries/studios. Water is served in the lobby.
Tours run throughout the day and are 30 minutes long with a maximum of 8 participants.
