2025 Emerging Artists Show

A professional exhibition opportunity for visual artists

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

The 2025 Emerging Artist Exhibition will highlight the work of three or more emerging artists from Minnesota, Iowa or Wisconsin. The application deadline and jury timeline for the 2025 exhibition will be announced later this year.

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 invites those artists with limited exhibition experience to apply.

To apply, artists may complete the online application, which will be available below. To complete the application, artists are asked to submit images via Google Drive or Dropbox. All visual arts media are eligible – both 2-D and 3-D.

Wall pieces chosen 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). Transporting the work to and from Lanesboro will be the responsibility of the artist. However, for this show, we will offer a driving stipend upon request.

The Emerging Artist Exhibition will open with an artist reception from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Date TBA.
