Calling all Emerging Artists and Students

So one of the new changes around musing that I wanted to implement this year (yeah a realize it's already March, give me a break) is a new feature focusing on student and emerging artist work. Most of the eye candy monday features showcase artists who have gained a level of recognition already within our field and community. I would like to start to support the more emerging artists out there in gaining exposure, and hopefully feedback on their work.

Starting today I'll be presenting two emerging artists each weekend. Now this is going to be a regular feature so long as you all help me spread the word and help search out these fresh new artists. I can't do it without you as most of this work is going to be off the radar and not the kind of thing you can just run across in an afternoon on Pinterest. So teachers, guild members, fellow students, each of you - nominate a friend or spread the word that I'm on the lookout for some new talent.

What qualifies? Well I think the term student is obvious enough, but emerging, well it can be a grey area.  I really just want to be inclusive of emerging artists young and old. So doesn't matter if you are 20 and have no formal training or 65 and have just fallen in love with clay.

What am I looking for?
  • A few images, they don't have to be professional or on a grey background. So long as we can clearly see the work that's fine.
  • If you've got a website, facebook page, etc, please send me the link to share. If you don't have a website don't worry about it. 
  • A little write up would also be nice. Tells us about yourself, about your work. Include an artist statement if you have one. Again though no pressure. Sometimes the images can speak for themselves. 
Where to send it? Just drop me a line at carole_epp@yahoo.ca with "emerging mud" in the subject.

Thanks everyone!
