SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

On what would have been Toller’s 70th birthday, we are pleased to launch a new partnership with the CANADIAN OLYMPIC FOUNDATION and the  Toller Cranston Memorial Fund. Artworld Fine Art Gallery in conjunction with Phillippa Cranston Baran have committed to an annual donation to the C.O.F. in Toller’s name, to help a new generation of skaters pursue their passion.

Toller was fearless in expression, courageous in creativity, and innovative in interpretation. 

He had a determination, dedication and a desire to go where no skater had gone before.

He lived life on his terms. He found his way of being in the world and staying true to himself.
