Call for Work – Emerge 2017, Student Photography Exhibition
Art Intersection invites photographers enrolled in an Arizona high school (including home school students), community college, art school, or university to submit work for consideration in Emerge, an Arizona student photography juried exhibition. This year’s submissions to Emerge will be juried by Clare Benson.
As part of our mission to support emerging artists, we offer student artists an opportunity to show their work in the North and South Galleries at Art Intersection. Art Intersection staff will also select recipients for Best of High School, Best of Post-High School, and Best of Show.
