Scout the city’s galleries so you don’t have to
WHO: The Art Stylists (artstylists.com)
SIGNATURE SERVICE: Fashion stylist Anya Shor and artist-cum-gallerist Manny Neubacher combine design forces to launch the Art Stylists, a service that scours the city’s galleries to find work for clients’ pads. “We know so many people with beautiful homes who have been living with blank walls forever,” says Neubacher. They fill them with paintings, photographs and multimedia pieces by local names like Thrush Holmes and Grant Heaps.
DESIGN PHILOSOPHY: “Art is such an extension of personal style,” says Shor. “It doesn’t have to be large or expensive, but it should be original and it should absolutely be there somewhere!” After they source work, Shor and Neubacher often project images of the art where it will be hung so clients get a sense of the piece in their space.
NEW PROJECTS: The duo leads a lecture and tour October 29 at the Art Toronto international art fair (tiafair.com) called Buy Early, Buy Young, promoting emerging Canadian contemporary artists.
WHERE TO GET IT: Call 416-546-3683 to schedule an appointment. As for cost, Shor says, “We’re free! The art isn’t.”
