The 2023-2024 CAG-EAP Program Welcomes Six Emerging Artists. The Guild’s Emerging Artists Program welcomes six talented visual arts students from high schools in Chatham County. This juried program pairs students with mentors who are members of the Guild for the entire school year. Its primary focus is to create hands-on experiences where these young artists can learn more about the business side of being an artist. Their work will be exhibited at CAG’s Student Art Show at Chatham Mills in December 2023 and at the Pittsboro Gallery of Arts in February 2024 and presented for sale at a local Artists Market in March or April.
We heartily congratulate the following young artists and their CAG artist mentors:
- From Chatham Early College – 10th Graders Fabi Vasquez (mentor, Kristin Bergsten) and Kayle Maxfield (mentor Jane Eckenrode).
- From Seaforth High School – 12th Grader Lauren Winkler (mentor, Kathy Flood).
- From Northwood High School – 11th Grader, Savannah Stahoviak (mentor Steevie Jane Parks) and 12th Graders Rokia Sissoko (mentor, Donna Stubbs) and Ray Brock (mentor, Sarah Graham).
