Buying or renting art by Toronto creators just got a lot easier, if you know how to use the Internet.
A new website called OCAD University Artist Showcase now makes it possible for people to ‘buy-or-try’ artwork by students and recent grads of Toronto’s foremost art and design school.
Made in partnership with Partial—an online platform aimed at connecting artists and buyers—Showcase stocks more than 270 pieces from 25 artists.
The site lets buyers browse a growing pool of paintings, photos, prints, and textiles, by scrolling through the directory of artist bios. Which artists get featured is determined by a jury from OCAD’s Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers.
