Paris can wait!

Due to popular demand, Toronto will have an additional two weeks to see the wildly successful exhibition praised as “a feast for the senses and the soul” by The Globe and Mail. Five years in the making and presented in partnership with the renowned Musée d’Orsay, Mystical Landscapes: Masterpieces by Van Gogh, Monet and more has been extended until February 12.

After its only North American stop here at the AGO, the exhibition packs up and heads to the Musée d’Orsay for a three-month run starting in March, where it will close forever.

To accommodate demand, the Gallery is staying open late on Saturdays during the final three weeks of the exhibition. On Jan. 28, Feb. 4 and Feb. 11, additional time slots have been added at 5, 5:30 and 6 pm, with the exhibition closing at 7 pm. The other galleries will close as usual at 5:30 pm.

Traveling as part of the exhibition are paintings by six of Canada’s most beloved artists – including Tom Thomson, Lawren Harris and Emily Carr – which will be shown in Paris for the first time. We can’t wait to hear how they will be received.

But wait! The exhibition isn’t the only thing that’s being held over. Toronto’s top destination for artful dining, FRANK, continues to celebrate with a French-inspired, three-course prix fixe menu. The restaurant’s artfully curated menu includes classic favourites like beef cheek bourguignon, aligot potatoes, French onion soup, and trout meunière. The lunch menu is available for $35 and the dinner menu for $45. A prix fixe dinner and exhibition package is $65. Members receive a 10 per cent discount on regular FRANK menu items, excluding alcohol, applicable taxes and gratuities. For reservations, call 416-979-6688.
