Where: The Polygon Gallery (101 Carrie Cates Ct, North Vancouver)
Established in 2016, the Philip B. Lind Emerging Artist Prize is awarded annually to an emerging BC-based artist. In past years, the nominations were limited to students enrolled in a BFA or MFA program working in the mediums of film, photography, or video. For 2019, the program has expanded to also include emerging artists working outside of academic institutions. This year, visual arts instructors, curators, and other colleagues across the province nominated over 50 candidates, who were then shortlisted by a jury to 11 finalists.
An exhibition of work by these finalists will be presented at The Polygon Gallery from May 17 – June 9, 2019. There will also be an art discussion on Wednesday, May 22nd from 1:00pm to 3:00pm, to take a closer look at the exhibition. All are welcome, and artists will be in attendance.
