Original fine art prints are an exceptionally versatile and economical choice for any interior project. As Canada’s leading printmaking centre, Open Studio Print Sales Gallery represents over 150 Canadian artists whose artwork can be found in residential and corporate interiors the world over, from prestigious addresses such as Canada House (London, U.K.) to even the most modest, private homes in Toronto.

Original prints will be on view so you can see first-hand the broad range of techniques, themes, and aesthetic approaches that can be found across the medium of printmaking. There will also be a brief tour of our printmaking studio and an overview of printmaking techniques: screenprinting, intaglio (etching), relief and lithography.

This lecture is 1 hour in length, in addition to which there will be a studio tour. The presentation and studio tour will be followed by an informal reception with complimentary refreshments and snacks, and an opportunity to meet some of our artists.
