From 2008-2017, the RBC Award for Glass was presented annually to an early career glass artist to undertake a period of independent research or other activities that advanced their artistic and professional practice. The award was supported by the RBC Emerging Artists Project and was awarded at an event at the Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery alongside the Winifred Shantz Award for Ceramics.
Recipients of the award represent some of the best emerging glass artists in Canada. To learn more about the previous winner, click here.
RBC recognizes the role the arts play in vibrant communities and strong economies, and that enabling the next generation of artists to succeed is essential to continued vitality. From visual arts and music, to performing arts, writing and filmmaking, investing in emerging artists is a long-standing priority at RBC.
