There’s so much art going on right now in this city it’s literally exploding onto the sidewalks. The Queen West Art Crawl toasts its eighth year tonight with an opening gala at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St. W.). Guests will be sure to grab on to their cocktails for dear life during the evening’s thrilling Art Battle: A messy faceoff that involves two artists, gobs of paint, and a stopwatch. Paintings will be auctioned off for charity. For the rest of the weekend, stay close to Parkdale, where more than 500 local artists will be exhibiting their work and performing live art exhibits and installations.
