The RBC Emerging Artist Network


At The Power Plant we take great pride in supporting local artists through our Membership program where we provide resources and opportunities to enrich artistic practices through programs like Portfolio Night and Master Class, as well as connect Members of our community through events like Exhibition tours, collection visits or artist studio visits. We are pleased to launch a new initiative supported by RBC Wealth Management that will allow us to continue to provide support and opportunities to 25 selected local emerging artists through a sponsored artist Membership.
