So we have a TOPW page and a TOPW community, which makes sense to continue using? I don't understand enough about the differences and the benefits of each, but I know I struggle to remember to update either!

Toronto Photo Walks is holding its first group exhibition at Studio 561 on March 17th to 31st. Details are on the TOPWshow.ca website; there's even a poster for you to print and display :)

The opening party will be on Saturday March 17th, 5pm onwards - I'm sure we can arrange for green beer for those who are celebrating St. Patrick's Day.
