The BEST of 2007 exhibition brings together the work of the award winners from the 2007 Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition (TOAE), representing some of the most exciting work being produced today in contemporary fine art and craft. Thirty-nine artists will show their latest work at the FCP Gallery from January 14 – February 29, 2008.

Every year since it’s inception in 1961, the TOAE assembles an esteemed roster of judges to award cash prizes and materials to artists who are outstanding in their field, including ceramics, computer generated work, drawing, fibre, glass, jewellery, metal, mixed media, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, watercolour and wood. Out of more than 500 exhibitors in 2007, TOAE judges selected 39 artists to receive more than $35,000 in awards donated by individual and corporate sponsors. For a full list of award winners and donors, please visit our website at and click on Awards.

“I am overwhelmed by the exposure I have received since winning the Best of Show award. The award has come at just the right time for me both financially and as a morale booster when I really needed it.”

- Kate Jackson, recipient of the 2007 Best of Show award

The 47th annual Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition will take place July 11, 12 & 13, 2008 on Nathan Phillips Square at Toronto City Hall.

The Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition is a charitable non-profit organization supported by a group of volunteers active in the art and corporate communities. The exhibition is financed through registration fees, and by government, corporate and individual sponsors, enabling the TOAE to charge one of the lowest registration fees in North America. No percentage of the artists' sales is taken by the organizers.
