Emerge will launch at The Reach

A launch will be held for Emerge at The Reach on Saturday, May 30 at 7 p.m. at The Reach Gallery Museum

The work of Nastasha Mol is among pieces at Emerge.

A launch will be held for Emerge at The Reach on Saturday, May 30 at 7 p.m. at The Reach Gallery Museum (32388 Veterans Way).

Formerly known as the Young Contemporaries, the revamped program offers emerging artists and aspiring arts professionals between the ages of 16 and 30 the opportunity to acquire valuable experience in the arts and culture sector. Functioning as a “gallery within a gallery,” the program also gives artists the chance to exhibit their work in a professional gallery environment.

The launch will coincide with the debut of Art on Demand 1.1, a rotating, cafe-style exhibition featuring the work of current members Kendra Schellenberg, Nastasha Mol and Angelica Born. Members of The Reach staff and Emerge leadership team will be on hand to answer any questions regarding the program.

There will also be one-of-a-kind Emerge tote bags up for grabs, finger food and door prizes donated by local businesses, including Sticky’s Candy and The Bookman. Admission is free. For more information, including a call for submission of artwork for 2015 Art on Demand exhibitions, visit thereach.ca
