On the first Friday of the month, join the RMG in celebrating local talent. The gallery buzzes with live musical performances, interactive art experiences, open gallery spaces, social mingling and more. Suitable for music lovers, youth, families, date nights, and culture-vultures.

Each month at RMG Fridays, DRIFF (Durham Region International Film Festival) will be presenting a selection of shorts from their annual film programs. The goal of the DRIFF is to champion filmmakers and new artists in order to contribute to local, national, and international film landscapes. DRIFF aims to inspire filmmakers, movie buffs and the curious-minded with script-to-screen programming and extraordinary stories.

Upcoming Events

RMG Fridays: PRIDE

June 07, 2019 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Our annual PRIDE celebration returns with another colourful edition of RMG Fridays! Featuring performances by Toronto RnB duo TRP.P and a tour of Francisco-Fernando Granados’ new exhibition “duet”, this month’s event celebrates our amazing LGBTQ+ community!

Performers:

TRP.P (pronounced "trippy") is a Toronto band breaking barriers within the Hip-Hop and R&B scene. Made up of Truss (producer, singer/songwriter) and Phoenix Pagliacci (singer/songwriter), the dynamic duo began their collective artistry in the summer of 2017. In October of the same year, they released their self-titled debut EP. Since then, they have been unstoppable! They opened for Kehlani at Toronto Pride 2018 and are listed as one of NOW Magazine’s must-see acts in Toronto!

Exhibition Tour: “duet”
duet brings together work by Jack Bush and Francisco-Fernando Granados to both invoke the aesthetic legacies of modernist abstraction and to initiate a dialogue on contemporary understandings of this period and its visual strategies. By pairing paintings and prints from the mid-twentieth century with site-specific and digital works from a contemporary moment, the exhibition creates a conversation on abstraction that transcends space, time, and medium.

As usual, there will be art making in the Studio all evening!
