Mayberry Acquires Toronto Gallery - Media Release

September 9, 2010

Winnipeg's Mayberry Fine Art purchases Toronto's Hollander York Gallery.



Winnipeg’s Mayberry Fine Art concluded its purchase of the operations of Toronto’s HollanderYork Gallery at the end of August.

The acquisition of the Hollander York operation, located in the historic Yorkville neighbourhood, offers a wonderful opportunity for Mayberry Fine Art to continue to build on its relationships with existing clients in the Toronto area.

The Hollander York Gallery, located in the heart of the city’s art gallery district, promises to be a fantastic venue for Mayberry Fine Art to promote its contemporary gallery artists – painters and sculptors from across Canada – to a broader audience.

Mayberry Fine Art feels fortunate to inherit not only several top Canadian artists with its purchase of Hollander York, but also to welcome the gallery’s professional, experienced staff to the Mayberry team.

Claire Scrivens, who previously owned Hollander York with partner Diane Rosenthal, will continue to play a key role as manager of the day-to-day operations at the gallery. Two of her HollanderYork staff will be staying on, as well.

Planned, monthly exhibitions will continue at Hollander York through 2010.

The transition at the Yorkville gallery will unfold over several months. Following renovations to the 2000-square-foot space, the gallery will re-open under the Mayberry Fine Art banner in spring, 2011. 



Mayberry Fine Art, one of the premier art galleries in Canada, opened its main gallery in January, 2003, in a century-old-building in Winnipeg’s historic Exchange District. Located at 212 McDermot Avenue, the family-owned gallery sells the works of a select group of Canada’s finest contemporary artists and celebrated historical artists, as well as post-war modernist works. The Mayberry family has been in the art business for more than 35 years.

Mayberry’s semi-virtual, satellite gallery, featuring touchscreen technology which provides access to some 2000 works of art, opened in 2008 in Winnipeg Square in the underground concourse of shops below the iconic Portage and Main intersection.

Since 2006, Mayberry Fine Art has also been a co-owner of Pegasus Gallery, on Salt Spring Island, B.C. Pegasus features historical and contemporary Northwest Coast artworks as well as Mayberry gallery artists in its harbour-front space.
