Administrative history:
Factory 77, initially known as Galerie Scollard, was a Toronto artist-run gallery focused on art education
which operated between 1976 and 1982. Galerie Scollard was established in Toronto in 1976 as a non-
profit charitable organization by Dushka Arezina, a Yugoslavian emigrée, artist, and art historian. It was
coined a “centre for education in vision” and was located on Scollard Street in Toronto. The gallery was
operated by a Board of Directors of which Harvey Cowan was the chairperson and Kenneth Lund the
president. Dushka Arezina sat on the Board of Directors as treasurer and was also the gallery’s
executive director. Galerie Scollard ceased operations under that name in 1978 and was re-established
as Factory 77 in November 1978 upon moving into a former carpet factory at 77 Mowat Ave. in Toronto’s
Parkdale area. Factory 77’s operations were overseen by Arezina and a Board of Directors chaired by
Lund, a Toronto lawyer. It aimed to present a broad view of contemporary visual arts by exhibiting
established artists together with emerging ones. In the years between 1978 and 1982, the gallery
mounted more than 13 exhibitions per year, featuring prominent Canadian artists such as Mary and
Christopher Pratt, Lynn Donoghue, and Ken Danby. The gallery also placed significant emphasis on
exhibitions by Eastern European artists such as Jiri Ladocha. The gallery aimed to foster student
participation through exhibits of student and youth work, and placed significant focus on art education and
appreciation outreach programs in elementary and secondary schools in the Toronto area. Due to
financial and administrative difficulties, Factory 77 ceased operations permanently in February 1982.


Scope and content:
Fonds consists of the administrative records of Galerie Scollard and Factory 77 accumulated by Kenneth

Canada artists and galleries.

Contains series:
   1. Galerie Scollard/Factory 77 records

Custodial history:
Fonds was received from Kenneth Lund in 2004.

Notes:
Immediate source of acquisition:
Records were donated to the Art Gallery of Ontario by Kenneth Lund in 2004.

Arrangement:
Material comprising this fonds was received in boxes with files in no discernable order. The only
apparent filing distinction was made in regard to Kenneth Lund’s personal art-related materials, which
have been arranged by the archivist as a distinct series. Many files contain intermixed Galerie Scollard
and Factory 77 materials. The fonds has been arranged by the archivist following the original order of the
creator, with original file distinctions retained.
