"EmergEAST Finalist Exhibition" Opening
Founded in 2018, Gallery 110’s Emerging Artist Program provides visual artists exhibition opportunities, subsidized gallery membership and other resources to help grow their art career. With this year’s launch of the Emerging Artist Program, titled EmergEAST, eligible applicants were those emerging visual artists who live in Eastern Washington without significant solo exhibitions and/or gallery representation; Gallery 110 sought to support artists from predominantly rural regions in WA who are not afforded similar access and opportunities to connect with larger audiences in metro areas.
Fifteen artists from east of the Cascade Mountains were selected as semi-finalists by jurors Rosie Saldana, Artistic Director at Tieton Arts and Humanities, Tieton, WA, Christie Tirado, Artist/Educator, Yakima, WA, and Gregory Pierce, Professor of Art, Chair Fine Art Department, Heritage University, Toppenish, WA, for a group exhibition at Heritage University in Toppenish, WA in March 2023. Ten Finalists were then jury selected from the Heritage University exhibition to participate in this group exhibition at Gallery 110 in Pioneer Square, Seattle from June 1 – July 1, 2023. Up to two finalists will be selected from the exhibition at Gallery 110 to be offered an Emerging Artist Membership Award (which includes a two year fully paid Gallery 110 membership, gallery representation, a solo exhibition, mentorship, and more).
The EmergEAST Finalist Exhibition reception and membership award announcements will be Saturday, June 10 from 1-3 PM. A People’s Choice Award will also be awarded to one artist. Contact email@example.com for an invitation.
