Saskatoon-based (and area) visual artists, critics, and curators are invited to submit a portfolio to the Saskatoon Studio Visit Registry.

The Studio Visit Registry database will be made available to select local, national, and international arts professionals (curators, arts writers, senior visual artists, researchers, and art critics) interested in visiting local artists studios.

Visiting arts professionals will use the registry to select artists they are interested in meeting with. The registry is free and portfolio submissions are accepted on an ongoing basis. In 2014, the Mendel Art Gallery and Make Work Projects will be accessing the registry for planned studio visit programming.

Once registered, submitters can update their submission or delete their account at any time. Once a year we will send a reminder for registered users to update their contact and submission information.


Artist/Curator/Critic must live in Saskatoon and surrounding area (meaning Saskatoon is the closest city to you).

Portfolios will be accepted from Emerging and Established Professional Visual Artists, Critics, and Curators.

Established Professional Artists/Critics/Curators will have produced a significant body of work in their discipline over a number of years; made a contribution regionally, nationally, or internationally to their discipline, and are making a sustained and progressive contribution to the art form.

Emerging Professional Artists/Critics/Curators will have completed training in their discipline through formal or informal studies or apprenticeships, are recognized by their peers as having achieved the level of emerging professional in their field, and have attained critical recognition for a body of work that demonstrates their emerging professional status. Graduate students working toward an MFA in Studio Art or MA in Art History, Curatorial Studies are encouraged to apply. Undergraduate students registered in an arts discipline are not eligible to participate.


Visiting arts professionals will use the database registry to select artists they are interested in meeting. Selection happens on an ongoing basis. Only artists selected for visits will be contacted.
