Stories and feedback from artists currently on the OCAD U Showcase is below:

"I feel more defined as an artist from the paintings I have been so grateful to have sold through Partial Gallery…. it’s exciting and validating when you sell a piece on your own. When we think of selling art, we immediately think it is only capable through an exhibition hosted at a gallery, but Partial Gallery gives the opportunity to branch from that “tradition” and offer a new and modern way of buying art! It means that artwork is accessible to everyone!

- Mashayla Ritchie, Drawing and Painting, 19’ 

"For me, being a part of the Partial Showcase is being a part of a larger community of creatives in Toronto. It’s giving me the opportunity to reach my work out to more people and build my clientele."

- Zuna Amir, Illustration, ‘20

"The reason Partial is the one I stick to is that it actually works…The local, and personal attention coming from Partial is invaluable. Partial Gallery is extremely helpful, responsive, and respectful and that means a lot."

– Shlomi Amiga, Photography, ‘19
