Artusiasm is proud to host an open themed art exhibition featuring talented emerging artists.

Space is limited. Our priority is to accommodate as many emerging artists as we can, which may limit the final number of artworks per artist.


The focus of this exhibition is to offer local emerging artists an opportunity to showcase their work in a professional setting and gain exposure in the local arts community.


Who is considered an "emerging artist"?

Anyone that falls under any of the following groups:

1. Artists who are in the early stages of their career.

2. Part-time/occasional artists with limited or no exhibition history.

3. Artists under the age of 30.
