Art Stylists Launching in Toronto (and it's free!)

An artsy (for real) stylist service being launched in town. I'm just back from New York, as it happens, where I was hearing about a new hotel going up on SoHo with an art curator as an integral part of the crew, part of a growing trend. I love the idea of taking art beyond the gallery. From a media release - and note that the service is free:

The Art Stylists launches custom-curated art collections

Innovative service provides art solutions for Torontonians

Toronto, ON – Local experts in all things artistic, Manny Neubacher and Anya Shor today announced the official launch of The Art Stylists, a free art consultation service that provides art solutions for homes, businesses and event spaces alike. Giving careful consideration to spatial requirements, budgets and existing
elements in the room, The Art Stylists specializes in fashioning any environment, from lobbies and boardrooms, to kitchens and nurseries. The company works to make the walls of Toronto’s living spaces more beautiful by turning blank walls into custom-curated art collections.

“We believe that art is an element of design and an extension of personal style. It reflects the image of the owner,” said Neubacher. “Art can create an instant impact in your home or place of business and our passion is to find the correct piece for each space.”

The Art Stylists has amassed an impressive collection of Canadian art, giving particular focus to young emerging artists and designers. Neubacher and Shor work to integrate and introduce the next wave of Canadian talent into spaces, showcasing names like Thrush Holmes, Paul Butler, Adrian Williams (The Royal Art Lodge),  and Edgar Ameti. Besides pulling artwork from their own extensive roster, The Art Stylists scours the city extensively for the perfect piece, making the process incredibly simple for clients. In addition, the company works with numerous galleries and artists in order to achieve the ideal art solution for every client.

“No one should have to live with blank walls. We aim to bridge the gap between high-end and affordable art. Original and thought-provoking pieces should be accessible for all budgets,” said Shor.

The Art Stylists has also created TAS ART + Design [Custom], a banner for custom creations. Art consultants work with clients to determine size, genre, medium and colour of the desired piece. Based on a specific budget and timeline, pieces are designed and created by an artist within The Art Stylists’ network, perfect for thoughtful and original gifts.


About Manny Neubacher:
Neubacher is an artist, director and owner of Gallery Neubacher. Now a conceptual gallery, Neubacher showcases the next wave of exciting, young Canadian talent and helps to propel artists to heightened levels of recognition. Neubacher has also lent his curatorial eye and belief in the importance of original art as a key element of interior design to a variety of projects including events, residences, night clubs, restaurants and offices. As the television host of more than 300 art segments for Rogers Toronto Living, he has gained insider access to numerous galleries and artists across the country.


About Anya Shor:

Her success can be attributed to her ability to combine a discerning eye and the ability to assess a client’s space and style. Shor has lent her stylistic insight to various print and television items including etalk, Globe and Mail, National Post and Fashion magazine.
