SUDBURY, On – April 14, 2014 – Artists on Elgin and Science North are proud to introduce and promote the work of three new emerging artists this April. The two organizations have come together to present a group exhibit entitled "Awakening", featuring the work of Sophie LeBlanc, Paityn Fitzgerald and Madison Kotyluk.. The exhibit will be open to the public on April 15, 2014 and can be found on display in Science North's Sunwalk.

This show is part of Artists on Elgin's initiative to support and promote local emerging visual artists under thirty who are not members of the organization. This is the fourth exhibit that Science North has offered to display as an extension of Artists on Elgin's Art About Town project, which displays the work of AOE's members at various local venues.

"These talented young women show us just how promising the future of arts in our community will be", explained Courtney Natale, Business Promotions Coordinator with The Northern Artist Gallery/ Artists on Elgin.

The group exhibit Awakening will be on display beginning April 15, 2014 and will remain on display for two months. The exhibit will feature various styles of paintings by emerging local artists. The public is encouraged to come to Science North's Sunwalk to view the exhibit where all works will be available for purchase.

"Producing work of this caliber at such a young age is exciting to see. One artist is as young as 13 years old", explained Courtney Natale, Business Promotions Coordinator with The Northern Artist Gallery/ Artists on Elgin. "This exhibit is a must see!"
