ArtAnywhere Bring Pop-Up Art Fair to Oxford & Cambridge University Alumni Event

Five pieces from my portfolio of Irish work and two prints of Julie’s work are included in this innovative exhibition.

First annual garden party to feature artwork from Toronto artists

TORONTO, Ontario – September 2, 2011, an innovative Web site for buying contemporary art, is expanding into the private event space.  Seeing an opportunity to bring beauty and meaning to private gatherings, ArtAnywhere has partnered with alumni from Oxford University and Cambridge University to create a “pop‐up art fair” for their First Annual Joint Garden Party.

ArtAnywhere will be showcasing a variety of contemporary works of art from its online catalog of over one thousand emerging artists.  Elham AyoubZadeh, CEO of ArtAnywhere, points to the importance of promoting original art in non-traditional settings. “People are too busy to visit art galleries and they do not have many opportunities to be exposed to contemporary art.  Toronto has a thriving artistic community whose work deserves to be seen.  We saw an opportunity to bring art to a highly educated and cultured group of individuals,” she said. 

Dr. Daniel Kaute, a successful international entrepreneur and Cambridge graduate, is one of the organizers of the event and president of the society.  He believes that having artwork at the event will be both fun and a way to show their support for the local arts community.  “Many of our members are art collectors,” he said, “and this is an opportunity for them to see artwork they might not have been exposed to before. It’ll be a great conversation starter!” 

The event will take place on Thursday, September 8th, from 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm at the residence of prominent Mississauga entrepreneur and lawyer, Gary Mooney.
