Some of Ottawa’s best young artists will be recognized at Young at Art 2013 exhibitions and awards ceremonies to be held at community galleries citywide. Works selected for Young at Art 2013 will be displayed beginning April 24, 2013. Prizes for outstanding work in various categories will be presented at separate awards nights for the east, west and central areas of the city. This year, in honour of the 400th anniversary of Samuel de Chaplain’s first voyage up the Ottawa River, youth artists were encouraged to submit artwork that expresses the theme of “Exploration.”
