Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects is pleased to announce that Krisjanis Kaktins-Gorsline has been selected as one of 15 semi-finalists in the RBC Canadian Painting Competition.
Established in 1999, the RBC Canadian Painting Competition, with the support of the Canadian Art Foundation, 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.
A regional jury panel of distinguished members from the arts community have selected five paintings from their regions as follows:
- Eastern (Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, Newfoundland and Labrador)
- Central (Ontario)
- Western Canada (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon, Northwest Territories, Nunavut)
