TETT TUESDAY SPRING EXHIBITION & SALE


We invite you to a special community showcase that highlights and celebrates the diverse work of our Tett Tuesday community! We are proud to present a group of talented, curious, and ambitious artists, students, crafters, and community members who have attended the Tett Tuesday Open Studio Program at the Tett Centre for Creativity & Learning this past year. On June 19th-June 30th, drop by the Tett Gallery and view and shop a selection of one-of-a-kind local goods, including: paintings, digital art, fibre art installations, knitwear, prints, drawings, embroidery, hand-dyed books and so much more!

Tett Tuesday Open Studio is an opportunity to carve out time for monthly art-making, and it is a place to gather and work alongside aspiring, emerging, and professional artists and crafters in the Kingston community. It a space where creative minds come together and flourish. Each month participants bring their own project and art materials and enjoy a relaxed and casual space to create and connect.

ABOUT TETT TUESDAY

 

Tett Tuesday Open Studio is an opportunity to carve out time for monthly art-making. It is a place to gather and work alongside aspiring, emerging, and professional artists and crafters in the Kingston community. It a space where creative minds come together and flourish. Each month participants bring their own project and art materials and enjoy a relaxed and casual atmosphere to create and connect.

The Tett Tuesday program has been running for over a full year now, and we have seen great success and growth in the program. Each month we welcome committed regulars, and friendly and curious new faces, from local community members, university instructors and students, aspiring and professional artists, seniors, crafters, community leaders and parents. This free, 18+ event is hosted in various spaces around the Tett, and invites 20-40 active participants each month.

Each session you can expect to meet a social, thriving, and like-minded community, who enjoy free demonstrations, skill sharing, and open conversations. Participants take advantage of full access to our studio spaces, and work on a wide variety of projects, including: felting, embroidery, acrylic, watercolour, photography, oil painting, knitting, collage, drawing, rug hooking, book binding, writing, digital art, illustration, printmaking and more! The sky is the limit, and it is a fantastic opportunity to try new mediums, ask for feedback, trial techniques, and find new inspiration. Regular attendants have developed creative business plans, created entire series of artwork, elevated their skills and ideas, and gained the confidence to show and sell their work in the community.

In December we hosted out first Tett Tuesday Exhibition & Sale. It was a phenomenal success. For the majority of emerging artists, it was their first-time framing, hanging or showing their artwork anywhere. We hosted a collaborative evening where Danielle taught artists how to price, arrange, hang, and promote a gallery show. With positive feedback from both the artists and the community, we are thrilled to present a spring show this June.
