Definition of “Emerging Artist”
Lanesboro Arts defines an “emerging artist,” or early career artist, as an individual who has great potential in their artistic practice but has not yet received major recognition, has not yet been substantially celebrated for their work and / or is not yet established significant “footing” withing their field.
Each applicant’s resume will be thoughtfully reviewed by the panelists, who will consider the significance, scope, and timing of artists’ previous exhibitions, critical reviews, commissions, performances, grant awards, residencies, fellowships, publications, and productions. (Generally, the best candidates are those who have no more than three of the major professional accomplishments noted above.)
Age is not a factor in determining an emerging artist.
