How To Become A Member

Open Studio is a member-based, artist-run centre. Print artists from Canada and abroad enjoy many benefits of membership, including discounted studio rental rates, exhibitions, fellowships and professional development opportunities.


Membership is available throughout the year to artists who have been approved to use the studio by the Technical Director. Those interested should email or phone at 416-504-8238 to set up a portfolio review. During your portfolio review, the Technical Director will look at your work, to get a sense of your technical abilities (this is not an aesthetic judgement), so please try to bring work that demonstrates your abilities in the area(s) of the studio you wish to access. Your portfolio should consist of 6-10 pieces of original print work only (no slides/digital images please). If you wish to work in more than one area of the studio (i.e., screenprinting, etching, lithography, etc.), please bring 6-10 pieces for each medium.
