RBC Emerging Artists People’s Choice Awards

Tue Sep 02 to Oct 14, 2014All Day

The Gardiner Museum presents the 4th annual RBC Emerging Artist People’s Choice Award. Supported by the RBC Emerging Artists Project, the $10,000 award—voted by the public at the exhibition and online—honours a Canadian artist (or permanent resident) who has been out of school and practicing professionally with clay as part of their artist practice for seven years or less. A national panel of artists, curators, and arts educators nominated the five exceptional artists.

Online voting begins Wednesday September 3 at 12 pm and ends Monday October 13 at 11:59 pm. You can also vote at the exhibition from September 2 to October 13. Join the conversation on Twitter with #RBCgardiner.
