Regis Center for Art Emerging Artist Exhibition Program


OPEN CALL: Regis Center for Art Emerging Artist Exhibition Program

The RCA Emerging Artist Exhibition Program is a new opportunity for emerging artists in Minnesota to participate in solo or group exhibitions at the Quarter Gallery in Regis Center for Arts at the University of Minnesota. The purpose of the exhibition series is to provide artists with opportunities to exhibit their work, broaden connections with other artists, and gain wider exposure to the arts community in the Twin Cities. The exhibition series seeks to support a diverse range of artistic practices within the visual arts. Participants will be selected by a panel comprised of University of Minnesota Department of Art faculty along with a member of the broader arts community.
