Emerging Artist Application

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 or more emerging artists each year. The application deadline for the 2018 exhibition is December 11 at noon. Selection by jury will be made by January 3; artists chosen for the show will be notified on or before that date. Lanesboro Arts defines “emerging artist” as an individual who has great potential in their artistic practice but has not yet received major recognition for their work. 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. All visual arts media are eligible.

The application window for the 2018 exhibition has closed.

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 Emerging Artist Exhibition will be for sale as per consignment agreement (40% gallery, 60% artist). Selection by jury will be made by January 3 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 January 30 – the Lanesboro Arts Gallery will be open between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. The Emerging Artist Exhibition will open on Saturday, February 3 with an artist reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., and run through April 7, 2017.
