Emerging Artists

Arts at the Port > Juried ArtFocus Gallery – Emerging ArtistsWorking StudiosGuidelinesAwards

The Festival is taking a different approach this year and changing our traditional Arts at the Port Youth Art Show into an Emerging Artist Exhibition. It will focus the work from four high school and college artists, who are interested in pursuing art as a career. Our goal is to create a unique opportunity for emerging artists to learn from, and show alongside, professional adult peers.

Selected artists include Alex Hanesworth, Ruby Jones, Vince Jackson and Carlos Roque, from Anacortes, Bow-Edison and Bellingham.

The Emerging Art Exhibition is part of the Arts at the Port exhibition located in the Port Transit Shed Event Center at the north end of Commercial Avenue. It will Open on Saturday, July 29. The exhibition will also be open July 31 – Aug 3 from 9-5 and during Festival hours August 4-6.
