Open Studio would not be possible without our generous community of supporters who directly impact our ability to continue our mission of supporting artists in the creation and exhibition of contemporary print. We operate as a charitable non-profit dedicated to offering accessible, inclusive and affordable printmaking facilities, programs and services for artists and the public from across Canada and abroad.
