Andy Warhol: Revisited — T O R O N T O

Since its opening on July 1st, Revolver Gallery has attracted over 30,000 visitors into its grounds and the number shows no sign of stopping. Today, Revolver Gallery announced the exciting addition of new original Andy Warhol artwork to its acclaimed pop art exhibition – Andy Warhol: Revisited.

This week, the exhibition walls at 77 Bloor St. West, have been packed with 30 impressive new works by Andy Warhol himself – offering Torontonians (art lovers and others) a rare opportunity to absorb more of Warhol’s most influential works. New works which are confirmed to be in the gallery include the full suites of the iconic Campbell’s Soup cans, Camouflages, Cowboys & Indians, Lenins and Trucks as well as iconic prints of Canadian ballerina Karen Cain and rock legend Mick Jagger.

As of today, there’s only 60 days left to see Canada’s largest exhibition of specially curated Andy Warhol works. Beginning November 3rd (Tuesday) and every Tuesday onwards, visitors who donate a Campbell Soup can will receive FREE admission. Cans collected at the exhibition will be donated to Toronto’s Daily Bread Food Bank, a registered charity that supports 200 food programs to fight hunger in Toronto.

Revolver Gallery, founded by Canadian entrepreneur Ron Rivlin in 2012, is an international contemporary gallery with  a one-artist program focusing on the life and work of the pioneer and preeminent member of modern art, Andy Warhol. Boasting over 120 original prints and paintings in the collection, Revolver Gallery continues Andy’s belief that pop art is for everyone while also operating in an educational capacity. Revolver achieves this by contextualizing the artist’s body of work and historical significance mainly through outreach, strategic partnerships with leading institutions and the sharing of information specific to the artist’s life and work. Canadian Rivlin is now arguably the owner of the largest private collection of Andy Warhol works in the world and following the success of the Toronto exhibition, Rivlin hopes to take the pop-up exhibit to San Francisco in 2016.

Revolver Gallery has also announced that all of the featured Warhol works will be available for purchase by art collectors and pop art lovers after the exhibition concludes. The presented artworks’ prices range from $5,000 to $1 million. Interested buyers may inquire further by contacting info@revolvergallery.com on December 31st.
