City Hall Art Show


This weekend was the 50th Toronto Outdoor art Exhibition which takes place in the square outside city hall. There is construction in the square this year so the number of artists was down from 500 to 300 but there were still a lot of great pieces. I have always liked the whimsy of this person's pieces - that bunny on the right is cast concrete with real plush toys packed in those wee cages!

I have been having a lot of trouble commenting and even getting on to blogger this weekend - keeps coming up error # 503. Is anyone else having this problem? I have to click on comment a few times before getting through.

I'm sure you have enjoyed your weekend! It's a good opportunity for the artists too. ;-)
Unfortunetely, I've been having these and others problems with blogger... :(

Forgot to add that I also have that problem but only on my mac, not on my pc.

I'm knocking on wood but, no I'm not having problems right now. I know how frustrating that can be.

I love that bunny. Very clever.

Art shows are my favorite way to spend spare time. I have not had trouble with blogger, but expect it to start now that I admit no problems.

I like the two boards painted blue with birds.

If I were there that Squirrel piece would have gone home with me. I love it. Would you happen to know who the artist was?

I like these art shows too. I wish I'd gotten down to the city to take this one in .

Blogger has been quite troublesome for me this weekend. I didn't get the "503 message but I had plenty of my comments on other people's blogs take forever to register or - even worse - time out so I lost them.

Plus my Dashboard has totally changed so it took me a while to figure it out so I could post. Hmmm.

I love browsing art shows - this one looks fun. I like the panels with geese on.

Love art shows. Missed this one though (was in Elora for theirs instead). Am surprised it is 50 years old!

I couldn't comment earlier because of that error message, too.
