Shari Kasman will have a solo photo exhibit related to the Galleria Mall book at CONTACT Photography Festival. Details:
Memories of Galleria Mall. May 3 to 5 at Geary Lane, Fri 12pm–9pm, Sat 11am–5pm, Sun 12pm–4pm. Opening party: May 2nd.
A smaller, abridged version of the Galleria Mall book entitled Goodbye, Galleria will be released on May 2nd. It’s available for pre-order online. This version is smaller in both dimensions and content. It includes no local history, no shopping mall history, and fewer details overall. So, if you’d still like a copy of the original book, it would be best to purchase one sooner rather than later.
The Galleria book and related photography show are featured in an article in the Globe and Mail
The Galleria Mall book was mentioned in the Star in an article: Are Shopping Malls Making a Comeback?
In November 2018, Salted Pepper Projects released a book called Galleria: The Mall That Time Forgot by Shari Kasman. Only 500 copies were printed. A few signed copies are still left at Spacing Store and Type Books (Junction location). One copy might be left at Flying Books (1080 Queen St. West). They’re all sold out online as well as at TOWN, Art Metropole, and Type Books on Queen St W.
Books and other items will be available (while quantities last) here:
Dec 8: Junction Triangle Craft & Gift Show, Pauline P.S., 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Dec 22: Tranzac Holiday Gift Fair, Tranzac (Brunswick, south of Bloor), 12 to 6 p.m.
