Emerge Records

Focusing on the next big gets a bad rap. Sure, trends come and go. But keeping an eye out for, say, burgeoning talent is another matter. And that's precisely what Gilbert gallery and photography lab Art Intersection does with its annual student showcase.

Juried by photography professor Rosalind Shipley of Arizona State University and Mesa Community College, “Emerge 2014” features pieces by students as young as high schoolers and as old as senior citizens. The exhibition offers three prizes: $250 for best in show; $100 for best in show by a high schooler; and $100 for best in show by a post-high schooler.

Get a look at some fresh photographers when the free show opens from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, April 26, at 207 North Gilbert Road, suite 201. An opening reception is scheduled for 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 7. For more information, visit or call 480-361-1116.

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Wed., May 7, 5-8 p.m. Starts: April 26. Continues through May 24, 2014
