Emerge is an Art Program and Gallery dedicated to supporting emerging artists in the growth and success of their art careers.

Working with emerging artists in our onsite studio, we explore individual interests and talents, as well as provide artists with access to opportunities that can effect positive change in their lives.


The Emerge Art Program is a place where program participants receive individual support, coaching, and attention in group classes, studio time, new project explorations, and Art career advancement.

The Emerge Art Gallery provides a public arena where program participants as well as select emerging artists from the community can display and sell their works of art.
