Martha Street Studio is thrilled to present a new series of artist talks, taking place virtually every Sunday afternoon, between March 13th and April 10th. A new artist will present their work, passion, influences and ideas about art and life each week. The talks are all free and streaming via Zoom. If you miss any of the talks live, you can check them out later on our website:

In addition to the talks, a series of free, limited edition risograph and screen print posters will be produced in collaboration with the studio and participating artists. These posters will be distributed across Canada in the coming months.

This series is made possible thanks to the Canada Council for the Arts – Arts Across Canada.
