juried exhibition for new and emerging artists
July 28 – September 8, 2018

Juried by artists Rebecca Chaperon, Pierre Coupey, and Seymour Art Gallery’s curator/director Vanessa Black, ‘Discovery’ is an exhibition that provides exposure to emerging artists. This fresh and eclectic show presents a collection of work by each of the nine exhibiting artists in a variety of media including drawing, painting, ceramics, collage, mixed media, fibre art, and sculpture. Despite this diversity, common themes arise and unlikely relationships are formed throughout the exhibition.

One artist will be presented with the Carole Badgley Emerging Artist Award, with a cash prize of $300 furnished by the gallery; honourable mentions will receive prizes donated by Opus Art Supplies and Kroma Acrylics.

Artists: Marissa Diamond, Susan Jessop, Sara Khan, Laura Meyers, Jialin Ren, Donovan Rose, Manuel Axel Strain, Natalie Schuler, and Kelly Zhong
