Joplin Regional Artists Coalition Presents: Emerging Artists Show

Emerging /i-ˈmərjiNG/–adjective: “Newly formed or prominent. Coming into existence.” – Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Joplin Regional Artists Coalition proudly dedicates their final show of 2022 to the artists of the future. They’ve picked the best and brightest from different walks of life. Some are very young and just beginning to explore their potential. Others are not quite as young, discovering the joy of art for the first time. Then there are the brave souls who’ve decided to pursue a career in the arts, beginning with a degree program. Thirty-five emerging artists are here and we hope this opportunity will encourage each one to take their place as regulars in the vibrant Joplin arts scene we all know and love.
