WHERE DOES YOUR SUPPORT GO?

 Your support will go towards: 

  • Providing mentorship to the artist in residence;

  • Providing technical support for the installation of the exhibition;

  • Purchasing software or hardware as required by the artist;

  • Printing materials such as posters, invites, and brochures for the exhibition;

  • Promoting the artist’s work and exhibition through social media and other platforms.

At Thirding Studio Gallery, our main goal is to support emerging to mid-career artists and designers. We are in constant efforts of raising funds to offer new generation upcoming artists a space to showcase their talent and support them with their professional development and career-building opportunities.

With the ambition of becoming a launchpad for our selected emerging artist as well as developing a vision for potentially artifying the industrial neighbourhood where our gallery resides, we have come up with an innovative artist residency project. This fundraiser will play a crucial role in enabling us to host our three-month residency program, including a two-week exhibition. A detailed description of our Residency program can be found on https://www.thirdingstudiogallery.ca/residency.

In this difficult time, the art community is one of the hardest hit. However, the Pandemic has also shown us how important arts and culture are for our society. So, we call upon all of you, wonderful people, to support our little step towards helping an emerging artist shine. This residency will support the participating artist and enhance the art scene in the Markham area by bringing the residential community, the local industrial and business community, and artists together.

The Thirding Studio Gallery is one of the very few art galleries located in the Markham region. Therefore, this residency through studio visits and an exhibition will prove to be a step towards creating a new art hub in the Markham area where people can engage with contemporary art and artists in a meaningful way.

Fundraiser Auction
 

Purchase artworks from our fundraiser auction:

The extremely talented team of Thirding Studio Gallery including the directors and the current staff have created and put together a wide range of artworks for this auction. When you buy from our fundraiser auction you are not only bringing an incredible piece of art in your space but also know that the amount is going towards a great cause. Being artists ourselves, we understand that covid-19 has amplified the scarcity of opportunities for emerging artists, and we wish to support this cause as much as possible. Thus we have decided to donate 75% of the amount for each artwork towards the residency fund.

If you are a professional artist you can contribute by offering your own artwork(s) to be part of our fundraiser auction. By choosing this option, you are committing to donate 45% to 75% of the amount from each artwork to this cause.
