Submissions are accepted to exhibit in the Open Studio Gallery on an annual basis.

Open Studio is an artist-run printmaking centre that presents a wide range of print media-based works from traditional to experimental, including work that, although not produced using traditional printmaking techniques, shares through its conceptual concerns a relationship to printmaking. Accepted formats include: 2 and 3-dimensional works, bookworks, digital and multi-media installation-based work. Proposals by individual artists, groups and curators will be considered. CARFAC Artist Fees are paid.

Submissions will be juried* and notification sent out approximately eight weeks from the deadline. Submissions not selected will be returned in the self-addressed, stamped envelopes provided. If you have not provided a self-addressed stamped envelope, your submission will not be returned. All applicants will be notified of the outcome of the competition. No telephone or email inquiries, please.
