The Association for Visual Arts (AVA) announces the 2016 FRESH: Emerging Artist Exhibit, with a reception Saturday, September 10 during the annual Gallery Hop.

AVA’s commitment to supporting young and emerging artists remains a touchstone of the organization. FRESH is an annual exhibition designed to help emerging artists gain valuable professional experience and exposure for their work. This competitive, juried exhibition features artists at an early stage in their career that display artistic promise, commitment to their work, and fresh ideas. This opportunity is only open to artists residing in the Southeast who have not had a major solo show and who do not have gallery representation.

“Since its inception, FRESH has attracted some of the most technically sound and artistically innovative emerging talent in the Southeast, and this year will be no different,” said Lauren Goforth, AVA’s Director of Education and Exhibitions. “AVA’s mission to support and promote emerging artists within the blossoming arts culture of Chattanooga makes this a highly recognized and anticipated show.”
