The Artist Project
The Artist Project is back for a sixth year in Toronto February 21 to February 24, 2013!
It provides a rare opportunity to explore and directly support over 250 Canadian and international emerging artists from various disciplines.

Opening Night Preview and Party:
Thursday, February 21, 7-10 PM, all ticket holders (restricted 19+) – Be among the first to view and purchase original works of art by top independent contemporary artists. Enjoy an electric evening of art, music, and delicious eats! A portion of the ticket proceeds from the Opening Night Preview and Party will be donated to the Canadian Art Foundation.
Untapped Emerging Artist Competition – The Artist Project is dedicated to supporting the development of emerging artists through the juried Untapped Emerging Artists competition.

The Faces Competition - This year TAP challenged artists to create a piece of art based on their interpretation of the theme, Faces. Selected by a panel of judges, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize winners will receive cash prizes, and visitors can vote for their favourite entry in the People’s Choice Award.

Come and relax amongst these never-before seen images or try your hand at these world-class cameras.
