The Emerson Young Artists’ Showcase exhibit took place in the gallery of the St Louis Artists’ Guild in Clayton, Missouri from March 7 through March 30, 2019.
The Call for Entry

The annual Young Artists’ Showcase has supported artistically inclined students for over 60 years. We aim to promote a career in the visual arts while providing an opportunity to exhibit in a professional gallery. ”
The Ceramic Art Pieces
My favorites among the “figurative animals” are the ferret and the fox (almost cartoon-like facial expression).
My favorites among the “vessels” are the Jomon pot, and the Broken Matrix.
My favorites among the “sculptures” are the Space Girl, the Faces, and the Forest Colored.
