2019 Selected Emerging Artists

We are excited to announce the 2019 Selected Emerging Artists. Young Arts Patrons selects artists through a highly competitive open call application process that is shared with national partners, university programs, and media outlets. Young Collectors Contemporary Advisory Group also invites local and national artists to participate in the fair. The 2019 Young Collectors Contemporary Advisory Group includes Elliot Perry (Art Collector, #PerryArtCollection), Marina Pacini (Brooks Museum of Art), Kimberly Jacobs ( Writer, Curator), and Whitney Hardy ( Founder, Young Arts Patrons and Young Collectors Contemporary). Past Advisory members have included Lauren Rossi (Creative Many), Jose Carlos Diaz (The Andy Warhol Museum), and Donna Woodley (Artist).

Young Arts Patrons is committed to elevating the role of arts in the community by supporting creative individuals from diverse artistic and cultural backgrounds.

Selected Emerging Artists are provided travel and art shipping costs and receive 85% of the sale of their work, in order to eliminate barriers in growing their practice and reaching new audiences.

We believe that these artists are some of the top artists to discover and collect now.
