Lanesboro Arts is pleased to announce an opportunity for emerging visual artists from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa to display their work in a professional gallery setting at Lanesboro Arts. The show will run from February 11 through April 9, 2023. Applications are due December 9, 2022, at noon. Accepted artists will be contacted by December 21. The show will feature three or more emerging artists.
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 has not yet established significant “footing” within their field. All visual arts media are eligible. Artists may be any age, but Lanesboro Arts specifically invites those artists with limited exhibition experience to apply.
To apply, artists may complete the online application available on the Lanesboro Arts website. From the homepage of lanesboroarts.org, click on “Artist Opportunities” on the sidebar, and then on “Emerging Artist Application.” 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. For those who prefer, you may submit a video application to firstname.lastname@example.org, with subject line “Emerging Artist application.”
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 are able to offer a mileage stipend for those who request it. The deadline for work delivery will be February 1. Artists will have the option of participating in the assembly of the show, which will be coordinated with the gallery director.
The Emerging Artist Exhibition will open on Saturday, February 11, 2023, with an artist reception from 6-8 p.m. at the Lanesboro Arts Gallery.
The Lanesboro Arts Gallery is located at 103 Parkway Ave. N. in Lanesboro, Minn. The organization provides year-round arts programming and serves as a regional catalyst for artistic excellence and educational development, by providing diverse art experiences for people of all ages.
