The Brush and Sword

You won't believe your eyes.

The Brush and Sword is Toronto's wildest underground art and sideshow. Join us for our fourth year on October 27th at The Rockpile, 5555 Dundas St. West. There will be two rooms of street artists, sculptors, tattoo artists and taxidermists with pieces on display and for sale. In previous years attendees have marveled at spectacular feats such as sword swallowing, human suspension, and escape acts to name a few. Stay tuned for this years local and international lineup of local and international artists and sideshow acts!

Taking Elitism Out of Art Shows Since 2015

Scarlet Begonias Studio prides itself on having an art show by artists, for artists. We do not charge a hanging fee or take commission from sales of any artist we invite, so every piece you purchase goes directly to the artist. Our marketing encourages not just viewing artwork, but purchasing pieces in an array of styles and budgets. As a result, many artists we work with find success at The Brush and Sword.

The Brush and Sword is a 19+ event. There is alcohol, nudity, strong language and blood (You know, all the fun parts of being adults.) Some artwork and performances may offend. This show is not for the faint of heart or the prim and proper.
