Opening Night Party: Thursday, December 1, 6:00 to 9:00 pm, FREE ADMISSION
Sale continues Friday, December 2 through Friday, December 23, Tuesday - Saturday, 12:00 to 5:00 pm.
Open Studio’s Artist Proof Sale is an excellent way to kickstart or build a growing art collection. And you can do it without breaking your holiday budget! Hundreds of original works of art, including screenprints, etchings, lithographs and relief prints are available by established and emerging artists from around the country—priced from just $50-$400.
The opening night party features:
- Original, one-of-a-kind fine art prints, ranging from $50 - $400, by established and emerging artists.
- Food, cash bar and festivities
- An artwork by artist Dave Dyment commissioned especially for the event — limited edition prints will be printed live and available for sale that night.
- Limited edition, original, handmade artists’ greeting cards—our new annual range of cards will be launched during the event.
The Artist Proof Sale is an important fundraiser for Open Studio— 50% of the sale price of each print goes to the artist and 50% goes to support Open Studio’s charitable programming, which includes exhibitions, talks, education and residencies. With each purchase you make, you get an original work of art at a reasonable price, while supporting contemporary Canadian artists and a vital Canadian cultural resource.
This event is an excellent opportunity for those who are looking to start or add to their art collections and for those who are looking for original holiday gift ideas or who prefer to shop locally.
This is always a popular and busy event, with fierce competition for some works, so come early — once a piece is sold, it’s gone! The sale continues to Saturday, December 23rd in our galleries (regular hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 12-5 pm) and online.
