Barehead: Toronto's Newest Arts and Culture BlogBarehead, a brand-new Toronto arts and culture blog, is diving head first into the local art scene. The team made up of young, effervescent, 20-somethings aims to create exposure for other artists by featuring new work on their website, as well as promoting events and spreading the word of affordable, arts-related things to do on any given night in the city.

Last Saturday, Barehead celebrated the launch of their new blog by hosting a launch party at a quaint gallery space on 1581 Dundas. The party featured various visual artists, musicians, zine-makers, fashion designers, and even an array of jewelry created for sale at the event. The venue was versatile- art featured on the first floor, music on the second- and brimming with people who had come out to support the blog’s initiative. It was such an incredible success, the organizers themselves couldn’t believe how well things had turned out. Barehead is quickly making its mark, receiving over 2,000 page views on their first day online.

Some of the uber-talented featured artists included Montina Hussey, Megan Stulberg, Diana Edelman, Catherine Hennesey, Nihilist Dog, EyzeAndrew Mastin, Ashley Demour, and Barehead’s own graphic designer, Aaron Mohr. As with the bands (Lion Detective Club, UNOAKED, Return Token, Oxford Blue, PORT, and Redsteps) each artist represented a different genre, giving the crowd a little bit of everything.
