Emerge 2016 Opening Reception

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the opening reception for Emerge 2016! We love seeing the support these early-career artists get from their families, friends, and mentors.

Emerge 2016, our annual juried exhibition of high school-through-graduate school student photography, is one of our favorite exhibitions because we are always dazzled by the quality of work that we receive. This year was no exception! As juror William LeGoullon writes in his Juror’s Statement, “Emerge 2016 for me as a juror is about examining how students continue to challenge the ways we think about and develop the medium while simultaneously recognizing photography’s unique relationship to our culture as a whole.”

Congratulations to our award winners! Buzzy Sullivan won Best of Show, Brooke Wright took home Best of High School, and Aurora Berger received Best of Post-High School. We are grateful for our sponsors Freestyle Photographic Supplies (Best of Show), Tempe Camera (Best of High School and Post-High School), and INFOCUS (all award levels) for providing the prizes for these awards. Honorable Mentions were awarded to Boyana Babanovski, Christine Elysse Crossen, Pam Golden, Azalea Patricia Rodriguez, Adelaide West and Xana Wilcoxson.


Mia Tennant was a very talented Gilbert High School student photographer who passed away last year. To honor her memory, several of her photographs are on display alongside Emerge 2016. We were honored to have Mia’s mother, father, and brother join us for the reception.

South Mountain High School Photography Workshop

A group of South Mountain High School intermediate and advanced students, along with their teachers, Vivian Spiegelman and Dena Cervantes, came to Art Intersection to participate in a three-session workshop experience. In the workshop the students looked at and discussed contemporary portraiture, learned to use a 4 x 5 camera, created digital negatives from digital files and print them in the Van Dyke 19th century printing process.

They produced some beautiful self-portraits and went back to school with a deeper understanding of the art of photography.

If you, your institution, or group are interested in learning more about how we can customize a photographic experience for you contact us.
