Emerging Artists Exhibition

The Montreal Art Center & Museum is a not for profit organization supporting, assisting and promoting local visual and performance artists for the past 13 years. We have up to 50 member artists in studio spaces in our historic building in Griffintown and each year we give non member artists the opportunity to have their artworks featured in our Emerging Artist Exhibition.

What is Emerging Artists Exhibition?

Emerging Artist Exhibition is a group exhibition that incorporates works of the top local emerging artists. It was created to support and encourage up-and-coming artists from different disciplines (ranging from painting and drawing to pottery and fashion). Additionally, this exhibition is accessible to a wide range of budgets which is crucial for artists who are just starting their artistic journey.
