Laguna College of Art + Design (LCAD), in collaboration with Laguna Art Museum, presents Emerging Masters 2021, a diverse and impressive exhibition featuring works by graduate students from LCAD’s Masters of Fine Arts programs in Drawing and Painting. These creative and skilled artists are among today’s most promising emerging artists.
Exhibiting artists: Brian Blasman, Tracy Child, Jessica Chong, Peter Clarke, Daniel DeMeza, LinHui Ding, Jason Dowd, Matt Duckett, Jody Gerber, Tony Guo, Mike Lee, Jill Maytorena, Kelley Mogilka, Mark Silverberg, Kelly Jane Smith-Fatten, Laura Sonnek, Agostino Vaccaro, Ray Vargas, Renae Wang, Pamela Wells, Mason Williams, Xiaohan (Nora) Xu, and Emma Yervandyan.
“It’s great to have the chance to spotlight these remarkable artists at a world class museum. Students come to LCAD because we believe that enduring art comes from a fusion of contemporary ideas and time-honored skills. Learning how to draw and paint with a high level of skill is a discipline that enables the artist to truly see and effectively communicate what one comes to understand.”
– Peter Zokosky, exhibition curator and LCAD MFA Chair
