Daniel Faria Gallery
188 St. Helens Ave., Brockton Village
After several years honing his craft, Daniel Faria, a veteran of the Toronto gallery scene, was ready to go it alone. His namesake gallery—housed in a rapidly gentrifying part of town in what was once a body shop—now plays host to Canadian and international artists, like Douglas Coupland. The high-ceilinged, open space is a perfect match for the large-scale installations and performance pieces that come through. If you miss out on a visit while in you're in town, the gallery has a presence at almost all the international art fairs.
