44 Oz's Group Show Next Week

On Friday the 19th of February Barbershop Gallery will be hosting a groupshow featuring work inspired by the freshly elected 44th President of the United States. It has been a lonnnnnng time since a political figure, let alone an American one, instilled the world with so much hope and promise. Yes the current state of the world seems to be in shambles with multiple financial crisis, political instability abroad,  and A-rod using steroids. But the public have placed a great deal of faith in this man. And even if Obama and his team do not fix everything in one term, they have still forced Americans to rethink about the nature of political discourse and the importance of being involved in politics. So come celebrate as some of the city's biggest talents display their artistic interpretation of the drunken hope that Obama brings on his first visit to the great white north! 

Barbershop Grand Opening War Child Campaign 2009

Barbershop Gallery was opened in the fall of 2008 by Parshil Studio in Toronto.  It's first  official show was the creative work done by Parishil for the 2009 War Child national  campaign in partnership with John St Media. The opening took place in early December and drew a large crowd of clients, friends, and curious pedestrians for a very enjoyable Thursday evening.  The event was made possible by the generous help of RedBull Canada, Malibu, Les Louises Catering , and DJ Dopey.
