Emerging artistic voices celebrated at Nash Gallery
A multi-genre exhibit featuring the work of nine emerging artists is on display at Nash Gallery, 371 Bluff Street in Cable Car Square. Featured artists include Sara Steuer, Kalli Olberding, Randi Westervelt, Samantha Sewell and Mark Fuentebella from Loras College; and Emily Cram, Traci Bauer, Gwen Gross, and Kayla Carlson from Clarke University. The artists’ work includes explorations in photography, installation, collage, mixed media/conceptual, painting, illustration, drawing, ceramics, and sculpture.
The exhibit and opening reception on April 19th served as a fundraiser for DubuqueFest Fine Arts Festival, the 36th annual all-arts festival scheduled for May 17-19 in downtown Dubuque. The artists donated 10% of all sales made on opening night to the festival. DubuqueFest t-shirts and signed, limited edition silk-screened posters by artist Rich Rossignol were available for purchase. Nash Gallery has recently moved to their new home above Monks Kaffee Pub, 371 Bluff Street. The entrance is at the rear of building. For more information about Nash Gallery visit dcfas.org.
DubuqueFest Fine Arts Festival and Nash Gallery are affiliates of the Dubuque County Fine Arts Society.
