Open Studio will showcase more than 700 jury-selected works by students, alumni, and faculty across all SCAD degree programs, including illustration, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture.

Participating SCAD artists include Diego Cardenas aka “lé dieguê” (M.F.A., printmaking), Olivia Lovito (B.F.A., photography), Ayana Ross (M.F.A., printmaking), Andrew Munoz (M.A., advertising), Ashna Malik (B.F.A., painting, 2020), and Thomas Flynn II (B.F.A., painting, 2016). Open Studio is an exceptional opportunity to obtain leading works by star and future star artists from the SCAD universe.

A portion of proceeds from Open Studio will benefit the SCAD Student Relief Fund, helping students with financial hardships complete their degrees. This follows a successful initial virtual iteration of Open Studio night held in June of this year. 

“Open Studio is an event that represents our continuing commitment to supporting and elevating the creative voices in our communities,” said Victoria Gildersleeve, associate director, SCAD Art Sales.” In this online iteration, Open Studio enables patrons around the world to shop for original SCAD artwork by talented artists among our students, alumni, and faculty. SCAD continues to provide an education of unparalleled excellence for fine artists, and Open Studio remains an important part of that mission.” 

Open Studio will take place on Nov. 13-15 on www.scadartsales.com/openstudio. A “view-in-room” feature will be available on the mobile platform via the ArtCloud app, making it possible for shoppers to preview works in their home before placing an order.

SCAD Art Sales, a premier curatorial platform, will offer guests access to its expansive artist network through the work on display. Launched in Winter 2016, SCAD Art Sales represents a unique channel whereby SCAD champions its students and alumni. Artwork available for purchase ranges in price, with inventory continuously updated as new and established artists submit work through the scadartsales.com online portal.
