Toronto Island Residency: Arrival Day 1

Today begins the first day of a week long artist  residency  with the members of my drawing collective, DtL.
We're spending the week at Artscape Gibraltor Point on Toronto Island.

Toronto Island  can only be acessed by the water:  ferry, water taxi, private shuttle

entrance to where you wait for the ferry

3 people packing for one week: clothes, electronics, art supplies, food

Goodbye Toronto

Hello Toronto Island

After a short ride from one end of Ward's Island to the other end, we arrived at Artscape Gibraltor and our home for the next week.  Each of us have our own bedrooms and we share one large studio for our work. There is a communal kitchen, tv area and bathrooms, though we are in the oldest section of the building, built in 1909. More on the building as the week progresses. For now we are focused on our studio space.

and what the week has in store.
