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.
