We are very excited to host another Emerging Artists Exhibition at ArtHaus! Artwork will be on display from Friday, April 7th, through Friday, May 13th. Join us for a celebration of emerging artistic talent from the Driftless Region! We will unveil the best artworks created by artists ages 18-25 at a reception on Friday, April 7th from 7-9 pm. Artwork listed for sale will be available for purchase through ArtHaus with 70% of the profit going towards the artist and 30% for ArtHaus should the work(s) sell.
Emerging artists are invited to submit 2D and 3D artwork completed in the last 2 years for consideration. We are accepting all forms of media as long as it is ready for installation--artwork not ready for installation will not be accepted. There is a $20 entry fee. The first prize winner will win a $200 cash prize and a solo exhibition at ArtHaus during the 2017-2018 season. Second prize will receive $100. Two Honorary Mentions will also be named.
Created in 2011, the Emerging Artists Exhibition has promoted young artists in a 150-radius of Decorah. The artwork has been selected from artists both in and out of college and has been displayed in solo exhibitions at ArtHaus. The displayed artwork is selected by a jury. Past juries have included Joe Madrigal, Professor of Art at Luther College in Decorah, IA; Eric Petersen-Brandt, Artist and co-owner of ArtHaus in Decorah, IA; and Gail Magnuson, Owner and Operator of Agora Arts in Decorah, IA.
