The Gardiner Museum presents the 4th Annual RBC Emerging Artist People’s Choice Award from September 2 to October 14, 2014. 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 his/her 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 noon 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 or in the comment section below.
