EARTH: Discovery exhibition for emerging artists – Seymour Art Gallery
January 08 – February 02
10am – 5pm

Our annual discovery juried exhibition provides exposure to new and emerging artists. The exhibition includes 26 artworks – each reflecting the theme EARTH. The jurors include: artist Michael Abraham; Seymour Art Gallery’s curator Sarah Cavanaugh; and artist Liane McLaren Varnam. Opening Reception and Awards Presentation: Tuesday January 8, 7-9pm.

The result is a fresh and eclectic show, with the artists presenting work that is as varied as their backgrounds; encompassing painting, ceramics, glass, mixed media, and photography.

One artist will be presented with the Carole Badgley Emerging Artist Award, with a cash prize of $300 furnished by the SAG, and honourable mentions will receive prizes donated by Opus Art Supplies and Kroma Acrylics. Prize-winning artists will be selected by former Seymour Art Gallery curator Carole Badgley.

Sunday January 27, 2pm: Poetry Meets Art: A Reading of Poetry Inspired by the Exhibition

Award winning poet Fran Bourassa will host an afternoon of poetry inspired by the paintings. Featured poets include local writers. Audience members can participate by reciting their own exhibition-influenced poems during the ‘open mic’ portion of the afternoon.

Drop by and get inspired! The Seymour Art Gallery is a non-profit, public gallery located in the heart of Deep Cove, North Vancouver. Admission is free of charge.
