Emerging artists are the future of tomorrow’s art, but it’s not always an easy path. We designed our Emerging Artist Program (EAP) to help ease the journey from emerging artist to successful, experienced artist-business person.

EAP applications are open NOW for the Best of the Northwest Fall show.  

Emerging artists apply for our Best of the Northwest shows and are juried, using criteria similar to our gallery artists. One artist is selected for each show and is paired with a Northwest Art Alliance legacy artist who acts as a mentor. The EAP artist is awarded a booth space free of charge (including pole, drape and electricity) and features prominently in show promotional materials.
