The Artist Proof Sale is a not to be missed event in your holiday season schedule. An annual event, the Artist Proof Sale provides art lovers with exciting opportunities to purchase original, one-of-a-kind fine art prints, at prices ranging from $50 – $400. Hundreds of original works of art – including screenprints, etchings, lithographs and relief prints – are available over the course of the sale, which features an amazing variety of artistic styles and types of work by both established and up-and-coming artists from around the country. Every year at the Artist Proof Sale, we also launch our annual range of limited edition, original, handmade artists’ greeting cards.
The Artist Proof Sale is a perennially popular and busy event, with fierce competition for some works. It’s an excellent opportunity for those who are looking to start or add to their art collections. It’s also a terrific way for those who are looking for original holiday gift ideas or who prefer to shop locally to check items off gift lists while also supporting a worthy cause.
The Artist Proof Sale and Open House is an important fundraiser for Open Studio, with fifty per cent of the sale price of each print going to Open Studio, a charitable organization that works to provide affordable access to printmaking facilities, programs and services for artists from across Canada and abroad. Open Studio’s fundraising activities help to support our vital artistic programming, which includes exhibitions, artist talks, tours, demonstrations, hands-on workshops for the public and professional development opportunities for artists, including scholarships and residencies.
In 2017, the Artist Proof Sale will be held on November 30. Doors open at 6 PM. Click here for more information.
