Local Artist Hosts First Solo Exhibit in Mt. Pleasant Village

Art Photography Exhibit featuring Michelle Vella’s Italy Series, A Journey through Italy, curated by AGO Docent Marjorie Vella at Moksa Day Spa in Mt. Pleasant Village.

Toronto Artist Michelle Vella is hosting her first Toronto Exhibit, “Italy Series, A Journey Through Italy” this Tuesday, July 29th at Moksa Day Spa in Mt. Pleasant Village. It will be curated by the incomparable AGO Docent Marjorie Vella, and what better stimulus to re-create your journey than to enjoy some Italian wine and tasty bites.

Michelle’s aims to re-create a journey through Italy, visually traveling in time, drawing you in to explore the art, architecture and cultural experiences.

Michelle Vella creates her artwork at her live/work studio located in Toronto’s Mt. Pleasant Village. Inspired by her affinity for maps and a passion for travel & photography, she re-creates her journeys through a collage of photos layered with complexity, like a pictorial biography but instead of it being about a person it is about a place, a country, a milestone in life.  For full biography please visit
