Located on busy Front Street amidst a row of restaurants, it is hard to find unless you see the sign. On the north side of Front Street between Jack Astor's and Badeli's Italian restaurant. It is located above the Irish pub The OverDraught. Once you enter, it is like a change of ambience from the busyness of Front Street and... More

Jeffrey Crowe, the artist is of the YellowQuill First Nation in Saskatchewan. Excellent clarity in the depiction of the connection between land, soul of all animals, including us, as appreciators of the image. The man is the art, and to read his story, and look at his art is so well connected. And impressive. The staff was so helpful and... More

One of the best galleries in the city. Every time I come in there are so many new pieces. Great collection of masks and original paintings, I especially love the Norval Morrisseaus. Can't wait to go back.

I purchased a walking bear statue from Bay of Spirits in June of 2013. The art sold by this store is all authentic First Nation work. The pieces are fairly expensive, but they are the real deal and the quality is outstanding. The owner Michael was extremely friendly and professional. If you like Native American artwork, this store is a... More

Purchased artwork from this gallery in August 2012, who arranged shipment overseas. The shipment was lost! The gallery apparently insured the artwork, but were not forthcoming with reimbursements. Was treated with contempt and ignored because I was located on the other side of the world. Luckily the purchase was made on my credit card, and the credit card company are... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
