Co-founders of Toronto's Loop Gallery, Richard Mongiat and Catherine Beaudette, tell the story of how the collective came together in response to the lack of opportunities to exhibit for mid-career artists in the late 1990's. Artists Candida Girling, David Holt and Gareth Bate also explain why the gallery is so important to the Toronto visual art community to this day.
