4 Bridges Emerging Artists
About the 4 Bridges Emerging Artist Program
For the fourteenth year, AVA will offer the 4 Bridges Arts Festival™ Emerging Artists Program and will award six artist scholarships. This opportunity is open to artists 18 years of age or older who are at an early stage in their career and have a well-developed, recent body of work and minimal experience selling their artwork at any venue. Artists cannot have had a solo show or be represented by a commercial gallery. Emerging Artists may not have a collaborator and only regional applicants, living in a 300-mile radius of Chattanooga, will be eligible.
Recipients of the Emerging Artist scholarship are required to attend a workshop with professionals. Recipients will receive complimentary booth space and use of display screens during the Festival. Recipients also receive a booth image photographed by AVA staff members.
