BUSINESS FEATURE OF THE WEEK: PETROFF GALLERY
1016 Eglinton Avenue West, 416-782-1696, email@example.com, petroffgallery.com
A beautiful space by Allen Road and Eglinton Avenue East, the Petroff Gallery recently celebrated its 35th anniversary.
A destinations store, customers come from all parts of the city. Petroff is much more than an art gallery – it is a community hub. It hosts many events, such as an interior designer speaker series and a workshop on pairing art with wine. Some events specifically target an industry crowd, while others are fully open to the public.
Petroff represents 140-160 artists, 80 per cent of whom are Canadian, while others are from as nearby as the United States or as far away as Israel.
Petroff carries ceramic jewelry, an extensive wood collection, photography and contemporary art. It also offers vibrant in-house framing services and at-home consultations.
Petroff also specializes in commissioned pieces.
“Often, a client would really like a piece, but it doesn’t fit well into their homes,” explains Ellen, Events and Exhibition Coordinator at Petroff. “So we connect them with the artist and find a way to get the right art into the clients’ homes. All our artists are eager to create something custom for the clients.”
The pieces at Petroff vary in price. While some pieces exceed $10,000, one could also find unique gift items for around $50.
“This is a very unique, hybrid gallery,” says Ellen. “We sell paintings and also many other things. We are extremely well-known for décor items and gifts, and we have a very loyal customer base.”
Petroff features different artists every month.
“We are constantly curating and changing our art.”
