The Israeli Artists Group of Toronto is a non-profit organization of visual artists who live in Toronto and environs. Each of them has lived in Israel at various times in their lives.
The group was organized n 1992. The purpose of the group is to provide an artistic and social environment for its members. The artists meet monthly and usually there is a lecture by a guest artist. Over the years, the Israeli Artists Group has organized workshops, exhibitions - some for charity - and outings to galleries.
The Israeli artists come from various educational backgrounds in Israel, Russia, Canada, and South Africa. They use various media for their two and three dimensional designs – oil, acrylic, and watercolour paintings, photography, calligraphy, sculpture, ceramic art, jewelry, and fabric art.
Thanks to the Israeli artists’ diverse backgrounds, media and styles, they are able to contribute a refreshing enrichment to the Jewish and Canadian art scene.
