We are pleased to announce that we are opening our doors for a newly-timed Open Studio event in collaboration with Doors Open Waterloo Region.

This year’s event features 40 resident artists and organizations who will have their studio doors open, showing new work and work in progress. Visit their workspaces, meet the artists and learn about their work. 

We are pleased to invite 15 visiting artists to the fall open house who will be exhibiting their work in the hallways of our building, which is the home of the former Bonnie Stuart Shoe Factory. 

We are thrilled to participate in Doors Open Waterloo Region this year, where we are one of 20 sites open to the public to explore. 

Join us on Saturday at 1 PM, beginning at Studio 25, for a guided tour by Globe Studios resident artist Fatima Garzan to five artists' studios. The event is featured for Doors Open Waterloo Region. 

We are pleased to have Smile Tiger Coffee Roasters on site on Saturday, September 16, serving coffee and baked goods.
