Open Studio


Open Stu­dio was found­ed in 1970 as an Artist-Run Cen­tre ded­i­cat­ed to con­tem­po­rary print­mak­ing. We pro­vide acces­si­ble, inclu­sive, and afford­able facil­i­ties, pro­grams, and ser­vices for artists and the pub­lic from across Cana­da and abroad.

Our pri­ma­ry goal is to sup­port artists in cre­at­ing and exhibit­ing con­tem­po­rary prints with­in an open-mind­ed, safe, and col­lab­o­ra­tive environment.

Our facil­i­ty offers access to a wide range of print­mak­ing tech­niques, includ­ing screen­print­ing, lith­o­g­ra­phy, and intaglio/relief print­ing. We aim to pro­mote print­mak­ing by pro­vid­ing stu­dio facil­i­ties, edu­ca­tion­al pro­grams, res­i­den­cies, exhi­bi­tions, and pub­lic art installations.
