Call for Work – Emerge 2019 Student Photography Exhibition

Emerge showcases the breadth of talent exhibited by Arizona’s student photographers from high school freshmen to senior citizens. We welcome photographers enrolled in an Arizona high school (including home school students), community college, art school, or university to submit their work for consideration.  This year’s submissions to Emerge will be juried by Buzzy Sullivan.

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.


About the Juror

Buzzy Sullivan, a photographer currently based out of Phoenix, Arizona, has exhibited his work throughout the US and internationally. Sullivan grew up in Montana, often known as “The Last Best Place”, and also home to the largest Superfund site in the United States. Montana’s duality of pristine wilderness and toxic remains formed his interest in the human/nature interface.

Sullivan currently works at the Residential Photography Faculty at Chandler-Gilbert Community College. He received his Master of Fine Art at Arizona State University in 2017 and a BFA from Oregon College of Art and Craft in 2013.
