Twist Your Event into Something New, with Twist Gallery!









Since Twist opened back in February of 2010, Nadia, the young and dynamic owner and director of Twist Gallery has watched her space blossom into one of Queen West’s prime locations for art shows and events. She says her favourite part about her job is meeting new people, and the rush she gets in anticipation of what tomorrow will bring.

Nadia also says that coming up with a name for her gallery was surprisingly one of the harder things she has ever had to do. People gave her all kinds of suggestions, but she did not want to settle for just anything. Like all things in life, coming up with the name “Twist” took time. It came to her out of nowhere, and she knew it was right.













The primary use of Twist Gallery’s space is for Art Exhibitions, but it is available for rent for special events outside of gallery hours.

She believes in the importance of meeting new people, and feels comfortable in any social setting. It is this same sense of ease and relaxedness that she trusts her visitors will appreciate upon entering her gallery. Instead of feeling intimidated and uninvited like some places, she wants her guests to feel welcomed and at home.

An ideal spot for fashion shows, corporate functions and photo shoots, Twist also offers a great alternative space for a wedding reception.
The Gallery can accommodate approximately 250 guests for a standing reception, and 160 seated.
Twist Gallery transcends the stereotypical idea of an art gallery and is a space where anybody can walk in and feel comfortable.
Whether an art enthusiast or someone who knows little of art, the space gives a sense of ease and relaxedness to guests.


Venue Capacity: 250, reception/160, sit down
Outdoor Facilities: No
Access/Parking: No wheelchair access/No onsite parking



Tuesday to Saturday, 11am – 6pm
