Are you an emerging artist looking for a way to display your work? If so, the city’s Department of Education, Arts & Culture is reaching out to local artists in the community to showcase visual and two-dimensional pieces of art for the Emerging Artist Exhibit 2013 as a part of EAC’s Art in Nontraditional Spaces.
“One of our goals at EAC is to showcase the creative talent of youth, adults and seniors in nontraditional spaces,” EAC administrator Missy Crutchfield said. “With this year’s focus, we extend this open call for emerging artists in our city and look forward to an outstanding exhibition at our office space.”
The EAC is currently accepting applications in an ongoing call for entries for the exhibit. Exhibits may feature the work of a single artist, a complimentary small group or themed exhibit.
Among the non-traditional spaces the ANTS projects have appeared include the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport, where artwork from students of local elementary schools premiered “I Believe I Can Fly.” Another exhibit is the City Employee Art Show at City Hall.
