The selected artworks will be announced at the Collectors’ Preview of Photorama on Thursday, November 22. All sales support both Gallery TPW’s mission and the participating artists.

“When TPW first approached us for this partnership, we were struck by what an incredible opportunity it is for the private sector to join forces with artist run culture to ensure Toronto–based artists are included in a local museum collection. Through it, The Drake is thrilled to support the vibrant gallery community in our city and support artists by fostering a new generation of art collectors.”
~ Mia Nielsen, Director of Art + Culture, The Drake

The Ryerson Image Centre (RIC) exists for the research, teaching and exhibition of photography and related media.

The RIC boasts three interrelated areas of activity. An exhibition program that addresses topics of social, cultural, aesthetic and historical concern from a variety of contemporary perspectives. The RIC’s Peter Higdon Research Centre conducts and facilitates inquiry into primary resource materials and offers workshops, lectures, symposia and publication programs. Finally, the RIC maintains a collection of photography spanning the medium’s history, as well as several artist and journalism archives—including the renowned Black Star Collection of twentieth century photoreportage.
