ABOUT THE SHOP
Our online shop is running as usual and our physical shop is open again! Curbside pick-up has resumed during office hours, Tues-Sat, 11-5pm EST. Please monitor our detailed visiting guide here for ongoing updates.
Open Studio Shop specializes in contemporary prints, multiples and limited editions, the large majority of which are created by artist members, visiting artists and guest artists at our studio facilities in downtown Toronto.
Sales for artist works on consignment are split 50/50 between Open Studio and the artist. By purchasing from Open Studio, buyers can directly support artists as well as the space in which they make their work. Fundraising Proofs (signed as FPs), publishing projects, and subscription prints are created as fundraisers for Open Studio. All proceeds from these items are put back into running the studio space and public programming.
The artist-made items presented through our shop illustrate print’s dynamic range of media, styles and applications. We have a physical store as part of our space at 401 Richmond and an evolving online shop, which provides artists working through the studio a commercial outlet for their work.
