One of my paintings “Open Skies”, which is pictured above, will be in this upcoming group show. This annual discovery juried exhibition provides exposure to emerging artists. The jurors, instructor Michael Culverwell, Seymour Art Gallery’s curator Sarah Cavanaugh, and artist Sarah Ronald have selected 28 artists to exhibit. Each has created a piece that reflects the theme: AIR. 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.
Featured artists: Meredith Aitken, Elizabeth Anderson, Kathleen Arkiletian, Ellen Bang, Larissa Blokhuis, Noah Bowman, Neil Chung, Dorothy Doherty, Karisa Evdokimoff, Monica Gewurz, Faye Gordon-Lewis, Kim Kasasian, Vanessa Lam, Ben Lim, Morag Macdonald, Olivia Mansveld, Laura Mitchell-Carvalho, Joyce Ozier, Alex Pichler, Jenna Robinson, Karen Santos, Zhanna Shomakhova, Peter Sickert, Katrina Stock, Leanne Stothert, Ned Tobin, Kate Whitehead and Chris Wong.
