Twenty Emerging Artists

Event Details

Seymour Art Gallery

January 10 – February 5, 2012

Opening reception and awards presentation: Tuesday, January 10, 7-9pm

Our annual discovery juried exhibition provides exposure to emerging artists. The jurors, Ross Penhall (celebrated North Shore artist), Alison Keller (independent curator and art consultant), and Sarah Cavanaugh (Seymour Art Gallery’s curator) have selected 20 artists to exhibit. Each has created a piece that reflects our theme: water. The result is a fresh and eclectic show, with the artists presenting work that is as varied as their backgrounds; encompassing painting, pottery, 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.

Featured artists: Mary-Jean Butler, Nancy Cramer, Liz De Beer, Dorothy Doherty, Shelley Fearnley, Peter Fruhling, Jessica Gnyp, Diane Isherwood, Shannon Leonard, Anna Milton, Vern Montgomery, Katherine Nielson, Renay Piper, Jack Prasad, Jennifer Skillen, Laura Skuse, Melanie Thompson, Elizabeth Topham, Tannis Turner, and Kelly Wharton.
