Emerging Artist Exhibition

A professional exhibition opportunity for emerging visual artists.

One of Lanesboro Arts' 2015 Emerging Artists, Ellie Schmidt, with her ceramic work.

The Emerging Artist Exhibition highlights the work of one to four emerging artists each year. The annual deadline for entry is January 15. Selection by jury will be made by January 31; artists chosen for the show will be notified on that date. All visual arts media are eligible. Artists may be any age, but Lanesboro Arts specifically invites those artists with little to no exhibition experience and encourages students and young artists to apply.

To apply, please fill visit the
Emerging Artist Application page.

The Emerging Artist Exhibition was developed in 2015 to meet the needs of artists with burgeoning new talent; this juried show will give emerging artists an opportunity to display work in a professional gallery setting.

The exhibit will feature pieces in 2D and 3D visual media in a variety of sizes, with a size limit for each piece of 40” wide x 40” high. Pieces chosen for the Emerging Artist Show will need to be framed and include a hanging wire in the back; all work in the EmergingArtist Exhibition will be for sale as per consignment agreement (40% gallery, 60% artist). Selection by jury will be made by January 31 and those artists chosen for the show will be notified on or before that date. The chosen artists will install their own display to enhance their learning experience. The installation will take place on February 21, 2017 – the Lanesboro Arts Gallery will be open between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. The Emerging Artist Exhibition will open on Saturday, February 25 with an artist reception, and run through March 19, 2017.
