Seven recipients of VSA Minnesota's 2011 Emerging Artists Grant will have their work exhibited at Homewood Studios Gallery. Each artist received a $1,500 grant earlier this year, funded by the Jerome Foundation, to help them create new work, and this exhibit shows some of that new work - including drawings, paintings, mosaics, long-form performance poetry, fiction and non-fiction stories, video and sculptural installation pieces.

Artists include: from Minneapolis: Steven Accola, Visual Art; Andrea T. Langworthy; Ethan Heidlebaugh, Visual Art; Lane McKiernan, Writing; from Chisago City: Tracy Gulliver, Writing; from Eveleth: Nancy Miller, Visual Art; and from Mankato: James Van Amber, Writing.
