Back back to Artword Theatre Welcome Page
1993 to 1998
Ronald Weihs and Judith Sandiford opened Artword Gallery, along with Artword Theatre, in 1993. The gallery and theatre were on the second floor of a turn-of-the-century factory building at 81 Portland Street in downtown Toronto.
In 1998, Artword began a
renovation project to transform the landlord's former
garment factory (next door to 81 Portland, at 75 Portland)
into two performance spaces and a gallery.
The gallery occupied about 1500 square feet, with white
walls 16-feet high. (See the link for the "Renovation
The gallery closed at 75 Portland in February 2006 when our landlord sold the property to a condo developer.
Artword Gallery showcased paintings, drawings and photography, selected on their artistic merit, integrity of vision and skill with materials. Artword is interested in building bridges between the visual arts and other art forms.
