About the Exhibition

The Emerging Artists Exhibition is a juried exhibition open for submissions from artists ages 18 to 35 in any medium, and is geared toward artists beginning the pursuit of their creative discipline of their own volition, be they, in art-centered higher education programs or engaged in their own artistic practice while taking strides in setting their career paths.

About the Juror:


Rachel Hsu is an interdisciplinary artist who works with visual art, language, and poetry. Inspired by absence, relational ruptures, and slippages in translation, she engages the yearning that emerges from distance and displacement to make mental exertion and emotional endurance felt within one’s body. Her work has been exhibited nationally including Philadelphia and New York, and her writing has been published in Honey Literary. She holds an MFA in sculpture from the Tyler School of Art and Architecture and a BFA sculpture from Western Washington University. Originally from Seattle, WA, she is currently based in Philadelphia, PA.


First Place–$500

People’s Choice–$250
