Re-cap Riverside Walks for Doors Open Toronto
Riverside Walks, free guided walking tours series of Riverside neighbourhood – is back for another season! This past weekend, Lynne, Ron, and Geraldine led 3 Doors Open walks that explored the past, present and the future of Riverside. 

Although, we were sad to cancel the walk at 10:00am on May 25th due to thunderstorms; we had a great time at the other walks throughout the weekend.

Thank you to everyone for their understanding and for showing up to the walking tour. It was a busy weekend here in Riverside with over 100 guests learning about the history and changes of the Riverside neighbourhood. 

Enjoy more photos of the weekend on the blog!

Jeff Mann Sculptures in the Saulter Street Gallery

This is the last weekend to visit Jeff Mann’s DeTrOiTuS MaSks will feature 14 original sculptures.

Jeff Mann transforms old car parts into masks, creating primal style and features with modern, industrial materials. Rather than simply using the car parts as found objects, their previous function in automobiles is the spiritual core of the works themselves. Mann has been sculpting for over 20 years, and he is currently based in Kingston, Ontario.

The Saulter Street Stairwell Gallery is located in the heritage staircase at the south end of the building daily from 9 am to 9 pm, and can be accessed through the second or third floor. Admission is free. Works in this exhibition may be purchased by directly contacting the artist.
