Studio Visit Series

Studio Visit Series

The Mendel Art Gallery facilitates studio visits to connect visiting arts professionals with artists working in the community. Artists who are interested in participating in the studio visit series are encouraged to register online through the Saskatoon Studio Visit Registry.

The registry is made available to select local, national, and international arts professionals including curators, arts writers, senior visual artists, researchers, and art critics, who are interested in visiting local artists’ studios. The studio visits are arranged by gallery staff in consultation with the visiting arts professional. The registry is free and portfolio submissions are accepted on an ongoing basis.

Eligibility

Established Professional Artists will have produced a significant body of work in their discipline over a number of years; made a contribution regionally, nationally, or internationally to their discipline, and are making a sustained and progressive contribution to the art form.

Emerging Professional Artists will have completed training in their discipline through formal or informal studies or apprenticeships, are recognized by their peers as having achieved the level of emerging professional in their field, and have attained critical recognition for a body of work that demonstrates their emerging professional status.
