"We know there is a lot of talent in secondary schools and we look forward to watching it emerge in our second RBC Dominion Securities "Art Impact" Juried Art Show", explains Muiriel Checkeris, Chair of the Northern Artist Gallery.

Submissions will be judged by a jury of highly respected members of the art community. The jury will choose the first, second and third place winners, which will be announced at the reception which will take place at the Vale Living with Lakes Centre in June.
