Only 60 days left to see Canada’s largest exhibition of
Andy Warhol works
TORONTO, ON – With over 30,000 visitors since its July 1 opening, Revolver Galleryannounced today the exciting addition of new original Warhol artwork to its acclaimed pop art exhibition Andy Warhol: Revisited.
This week, the exhibition walls at 77 Bloor St. West have been filled with 30 impressive new works by Andy Warhol, offering Torontonians another rare opportunity to witness more of Warhol’s most influential works. New works include the full suites of the iconic Campbell's Soup cans, Camouflages, Cowboys & Indians, Lenins and Trucks, as well as iconic prints of Canadian ballerina Karen Cain and rock legend Mick Jagger.
Every Tuesday (starting Tuesday, Nov. 3) visitors who donate a Campbell Soup can will receive FREE admission. All cans collected at the exhibition will be donated to Toronto’s Daily Bread Food Bank, a registered charity that supports 200 food programs to fight hunger in the city.
Revolver Gallery has also announced that all of its featured Warhol works will be available for purchase by art collectors and pop art lovers after the exhibition ends. The presented artworks’ prices range from $5,000 to $1 million. Interested buyers can inquire by contacting [email protected] on December 31.
