Over the past 45 years Open Studio has amassed a collection of original prints by significant Canadian artists through fundraising proofs artists provide from their printed editions and work donated by the artist community. The Summer Salon exhibition, taking place in all three of Open Studio’s galleries, will showcase a selection of these prints and is organized in collaboration with Bridget Collings and Brenna Pladsen, students from the University of Toronto Masters of Museum Studies Program.
Summer Salon will showcase works by Tatyana Abel, Hannah Alpha, David Scott Armstrong, Chloé Beaulac, Katie Bethune-Leaman, Sarka Buchl Stephenson, Faye Digulla, Erik Edson, Sonya Filman, Elizabeth Forrest, Florin Hategan, Astrid Ho, Ryan Laidman, Catherine Lane, Natalie McDonald, Shinsuke Minegeshi, Suzanne Nacha, Darryl Nunn, Lauren Nurse, Walter Procska, SRees, Stephanie Russ, Suzie Smith, Daryl Vocat, and Judith Welbourn,
Our Print Sales Viewing Room will also feature works by Anne Abbass, Sally Ayre, Janice Carbert, Robert Davidovitz, Geneviève Jodouin, Jeanette Johns, Guy Langevin, Leyla Majeri, Eric Mathew, Dan O’Neill, Roula Partheniou, Kaleena Stasiak and Katherine Sullivan.
Proceeds from the sale of these prints support Open Studio and its programs, including exhibitions, artist talks and demonstrations for the public, and professional development opportunities for artists, including studio access, scholarships and residencies.
