Open Studio is an artist-run centre located in the creative hub of 401 Richmond Street West dedicated to the production, preservation and promotion of contemporary fine art prints. Established in 1970, the centre was formed under the ethos of shared production space, collaboration and the exchange of technical knowledge and creative ideas. As Open Studio approaches its 50th anniversary, the centre is delighted to announce a show featuring contemporary printmaking at FCP Gallery titled: PRINT MATTERS.

Printmaking is incredibly diverse and encompasses many forms and techniques, including etching, lithography and screenprinting—to name a few. The works included in PRINT MATTERS offer a glimpse into the expansive medium of printmaking, and the scope of original prints created and sold through the Open Studio Shop.

PRINT MATTERS features works by long-standing Open Studio artist members including: Sally Ayre, Pamela Dodds, Jenn Law, Laine Groeneweg and Sadko Hadzihasanovic; artists who have completed our Visiting Artist residency program: Jaime Angelopoulos and Panya Clark Espinal; a collaborative print project, The Printmaker, featuring work by emerging printmakers: Victoria Day, Annyen Lam, Alex R. M. Thompson and Pudy Tong; and print work by Shuvinai Ashoona, which exemplifies Open Studio’s evolving relationship with Dorset Fine Arts and Kinngait / West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative to promote and facilitate printmaking in Inuit communities.
