for Toronto Art Lovers …

On this night we will bring together some of Toronto’s most amazing visual artists under an open sky. 

The Screen Lounge roof top patio boasts a breathtaking view of bustling Yonge and College. The patio features a separate bar and lounge area and is fully serviced by the restaurant.

The scene will be sort of Entertainment District-esque with cushioned booths, a live DJ and the main attraction, the art.

Tell a friend and come out and meet new friends.

Are you a Real Jerk Rum Connoisseur?
Are you an Art Connoisseur?

The Real Jerk cordially invites you to Black Seal and Lemon Hart Rum Tasting with Art showing for Artist Gabrielle Lasporte on Tuesday May 27th at 6:30pm

Goslings Black Seal Rum
Gosling Black Seal Rum has a rich, intricate flavour, well balances and nuanced with butterscotch, vanilla and caramel.
Today, unlike most spirits, Black Seal includes products of both pot stills, as used in fine Cognacs. Bermuda’s largest export – and the one known around the world – is Gosling’s Bermuda Rum, produced here since 1850, and still going strong. Mixing Gosling’s Black Seal Rum with Gosling’s Stormy Ginger Beer makes the trademarked and National Drink of Bermuda, the Dark ‘n Stormy®.

Lemon Hart Demerara Rum
A premium blend of select 100% Demerara rums, distilled, aged and blended on the East Bank of the Demerara River in Guyana. This balanced, velvety smooth tasting rum is great with cocktails.
Lemon Hart Rum is deep mahogany in colour, with whispers of raisin, dried dates, vanilla, dark chocolate and caramel carried on a silky texture and lifted by lively spice.

Artist Gabrielle Lasporte
Passionate about all things creative, Toronto-based Graphic Designer and Visual Artist Gabrielle Lasporte has been the creator of many diverse art pieces across many forms of media . She creates pieces in the mostly unknown medium of Modern Batik (creating
artwork by applying wax and dyes on fabric.)

Charton Hobbs will be at the Real Jerk offering samples of Black Seal Rum and Lemon Hart Rum.

Join us on Tuesday May 27 at 6:30pm, and enjoy the spirit of Rum and Art

Another one for the books!


Another first for me as an artist! The Artist Project was a great experience this past weekend and got to talk to many people about the art of batik and my technique. I also really liked making connections with fellow artists and talking about their work. Looking forward to many new things to come! g.

The Artist Project – 1st Batik Artist to showcase

1 week until The Artist Project opening night. I am very excited to be the first Batik Artist ever to showcase work there. I am looking forward to introducing everyone to the art!
