HISTORY

The first Emerging Artists' Exhibition debuted in 2011, receiving entries from Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. For the 2nd Annual exhibition, a committee of four jurors selected 24 of the 68 submitted artworks for the exhibition at ArtHaus. Student artists from three states, representing six colleges and universities in the region, submitted sculpture, pottery, photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, jewelry and mixed media works.

Participating panelists were John Whelan, (Professor of Drawing and Art History at St. Mary's University in Winona); Anja Brown, (artist and ownder of Perfect Edge, a framing business in Decorah); Dr. Don McComb, (Professor of Graphic Design at Upper Iowa University;) and Ben Moore (Professor of Painting and Drawing at Luther College, and board member of the Driftless Art Collective).

The title of "Best in Show" was awarded to Zoe Klosterboer, receiving an upcoming solo show with the ArtHaus this spring. Her three works, (Embodied 1, Embodied 2, and Embodied 3) show intricate hand-cut designs on paper.

Honorable Mentions were given to Astri Snodgrass and Carly Blazing, both students from Luther College.
