Three jurors from around the country—all experts in the visual arts who specialize in discovering, mentoring, and promoting emerging talent—selected nine finalists. And our readers voted online to nominate the tenth.
This year, WNC magazine collaborated with Flood Gallery Fine Art Center to welcome these artists to the spotlight by hosting a month-long group exhibit. Get to know the artists within these pages, but don’t miss the opportunity to see their works this June. Let the show begin.

The On the Verge exhibit opens June 3. If you can’t make it to the party, stop by during the River Arts District Studio Stroll, June 12-13.
WNC Magazine would like to give Special Thanks to:
