Each year, the RBC Canadian Painting Competition highlights works by promising emerging artists across Canada. Just click on the image above to see a slideshow of works by this year’s 15 finalists.
The winner and two honourable mentions will be announced at a gala tonight at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. All the finalists’ paintings will also be displayed at the gallery until October 8. Paintings will then be on exhibit at Art Toronto from October 23 to 27.
Established in 1999, the RBC Canadian Painting Competition, administered with the support of the Canadian Art Foundation (publisher of Canadian Art), is a unique initiative to help nurture and support promising new artists in the early stages of their careers—a time when they need both recognition and financial support.
