Each year Open Studio selects four professional artists with or without printmaking experience to create traditional and/or experimental works in the print medium of their choice, working collaboratively with a print media artist. The Visiting Artist Residency, in operation since 1983, is a popular program that receives applications from artists from around the world. In conjunction with the residency, each artist exhibits the work produced during their period in the Studio, and gives an artist talk. These exhibitions are the result of this intensive work period. The first of two Visiting Artist exhibitions will features work by artists Stephanie Cormier and Jacob Robert Whibley. The accompanying brochure, with essays by Tara Bursey and Alex Bowron is available here: www.openstudio.on.ca/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/cormier-whibley-brochure.pdf

Visiting Artists Exhibitions:
Stephanie Cormier and Robert Jacob Whibley

Stephanie Cormier: Toolbox In The Head
Cormier read some of her written descriptions to her young daughter, asking her to draw them as she imagines them. These drawings have served as prototype renderings that Cormier used to produce a new series of screenprints.

Jacob Robert Whibley: imperfect aspect
Whibley explores ephemeral moments to showcase that in our networked culture—where copying and distributing information and objects is easy—the perception of what a singular experience/object is has been altered significantly through the possibility of endless unique copies.

Karen Curry: The Edge
Curry is an artist working in painting, printmaking and photography. The Edge features work from Curry’s series Ancient Light. This body of work was begun during a 2015 artist residency in New Zealand as an exploration into the ever-changing nature of the edges of islands.
