What People Are Saying

"Open Studio is more than a place, it is a cultural concept made real. Traditions of the past are honoured and preserved while artistic experimentation—not only with print media and methods, but with the very idea of printmaking itself—is encouraged and supported."

— Sandi Ralph, Open Studio Artist Member

"[There are] many initiatives that place Open Studio among the ranks of world-class contemporary printmaking facilities; as an emerging artist, I cannot overstate how much [Open Studio] has helped me thrive, creatively and professionally, at this stage in my career. "

— Annyen Lam, Open Studio's Don Phillips Scholar, 2013/14
