Emerge 2015 – Student Photography Exhibition
Art Intersection presents, Emerge, our fifth annual exhibition of photography from student artists enrolled in an Arizona public or private high school, homeschool, college, art school, or university. As part of our mission to support emerging artists, we offer student photographers, from high school freshman to senior citizens, an opportunity to show their work in the North and South Galleries at Art Intersection.
This is a juried show with three cash prizes, $250 for Best in Show, $100 for Best in Show High School Student, and $100 for Best in Show post high school.
About the Juror – Claire A. Warden
Claire A. Warden (b. Montreal, Quebec, 1988) is a photo-based artist working in Phoenix, Arizona. Claire’s work explores intersecting ideas and issues of place, preservation, identity and performance. The constructed photograph is integral to her arts practice. She received her BFA in Photography and BA in Art History from Arizona State University and completed one year of coursework towards an MFA at Texas Woman’s University. From 2011 to 2013, she worked at the Getty Research Institute documenting their permanent collection and conducting her own independent research.
Claire was the Artist in Residence at Art Intersection during 2014 and had an exhibition, Mimesis, which highlighted her new work.
