Original art crafted with passion.

Emerging Artists

Over recent years Northern Artists Gallery has offered support and encouragement to emerging artists in our northern community.

  • We have provided curatorial guidance, and exhibition space has been available through our collaboration with Science North.
  • We have exhibited some excellent work, created by a range of art graduates and self taught mature community members alike.
  • Northern Artists Gallery intends to maintain this tradition of welcoming new artists to the art community by providing an online exhibit space.

Emerging artists will have the opportunity to have their work juried for display on our website for three months!

Northern Artists Gallery invites submissions from emerging artists for our Emerging Artist Spotlight. Four emerging artists will be displayed annually, each for a free three month period.

Emerging Artist Spotlight

Madison Kotyluk

Artist Bio

Sudbury, Ontario
Madison’s work is one of variety in medium, shape, and form. She has a tendency to search for new outlooks and perspectives in the presentation of her subjects. Creating works with hundreds of strokes to adore her canvas, she strives to flourish her bewitching talents in order to allow herself and others to express themselves through her works of art. Striving to strike conversion among her audience, she lifts her brushes, pens, and pencils to the task of creating colourful and engaging environments of imaginative colour and impressive wonderment. An accomplished professional artist, Madison’s body of work continues to grow as she explores different methods to express her madness.

“Without a splash of colour to our daily lives, the world would be viewed in grayscale.” – Madison Kotyluk
