Emerging, student photographers exhibit their work in the Art Intersection annual exhibition, Emerge. This year’s opening artist reception was the best ever in the eight years of Emerge, our annual exhibition featuring works from student photographers enrolled in Arizona high schools, community colleges, art schools, and universities across the state. Ashley Czajkowski, a local photography-based artist and educator, juried this year’s show.
In this exhibition we offer student photographers an opportunity to show their work in a professional gallery, fulfilling our mission to support early-career photographers. In addition to the month long exhibition, prizes were awarded for Best in Show, sponsored by Through Each Other’s Eyes; Best of Post-High School, sponsored by Charlene Stant Engel; and Best of High School, sponsored by Kelly and Dennis Collins.
Many photographers were acknowledged with Honorable Mentions. You can see all the awards and works in this exhibition at this link.
