PLUS Art Fair is the first art fair of its kind that showcases the work of Master's of Fine Arts (MFA) current candidates and alumni artists from across Canada. Their mission is to present the public, and those in the arts and culture profession, with the next generation of artists that will inhabit Canada’s galleries and who will guide generations to come.
