Emerging Artists Unleashed : 2018 Exhibit

This exhibit is open to those applying to the scholarship and to students who are looking for an opportunity to exhibit in a public setting. “Emerging Artists Unleashed : 2018” gives students practical experience in set-up, take-down, reception, and all other logistics involved in exhibiting artwork. As well, it allows students from various Alberta institutions to work together towards a common goal. The mission of this exhibit is two-fold: 1) to provide young artists a professional development experience; and, 2) to provide Albertans a more intimate look into the minds and artistic voice of young artists in the Province. Please note: you do not have to apply for the scholarship in order to be considered for the exhibit.
