Founded by Fay Athari, Arta Gallery is an established Canadian art gallery nestled in the heart of Toronto’s Historic Distillery District. This important cultural and artistic centre in Toronto has been home to us since it was established in 2003. Since 2003, we have provided and accessible space for artists to showcase their artworks within the Toronto community, offering an eclectic collection of contemporary work by both Canadian and international artists. Under the leadership of Director Fay Athari, Arta Gallery encountered a major expansion in June 2008. By creating a larger space to display professional commercial art for collectors, artists and the public, the gallery is now a fully operational event space – providing a unique atmosphere for weddings, fundraisers, and corporate events while promoting art to a larger audience. Arta Gallery is proud to have been a part of the Distillery District since it opened in 2003 and continues to thrive in its unique ambience and culture.
