We are pleased to announce PMG artist AMY SCHISSEL has been awarded the prestigious 2013 RBC Emerging Artist of the Year Award from the Council for the Arts in Ottawa. The Royal Bank of Canada award, accompanied by a $5000 prize, recognizes the achievements the artist has made in her innovative and transformative painting practice and acknowledges the limitless potential as she moves forward with her career. In 2011/12, Ms. Schissel was also a top-ten finalist in the RBC Canadian Painting Competition.
Following a successful and well-received debut in the New York art market at PATRICK MIKHAIL GALLERY's presentation at Volta NY in March 2013, Ms. Schissel has shifted her focus and professional practice to Brooklyn, New York, where she will be working on several collaborations with international collectors, consultants, and clients, and preparing for a number of commercial and institutional presentations in 2014.
