Presentation House Gallery is proud to present the second annual Philip B. Lind Emerging Artist Prize exhibition. The prize has been established to support emerging artists working with photography, film, and video, and reflects Presentation House Gallery’s long history of nurturing new talent among the province’s visual artists. Each year, post-secondary visual arts instructors are invited to nominate a student enrolled in a BFA or a MFA program in BC. Shortlisted students have their work exhibited as part of the Lind Prize exhibition, and the winner is awarded $5000 toward the production of a new work to be displayed at the future Polygon Gallery. This year’s jury comprises artist Stan Douglas and curators Grant Arnold (Vancouver Art Gallery) and Helga Pakasaar (Presentation House Gallery).

The Philip B. Lind Emerging Artist Prize is made possible through a generous donation from Rogers Communications to honour Phil Lind’s commitment to the company over 40 years.
