Since 2005 Kingston Gallery’s Emerging Artist program has offered recent MFA graduates the opportunity to be part of an artist-run gallery for a year, without the financial contribution such memberships usually require. Emerging artists get the experience of being part of a gallery, fulfilling all the aspects of membership, including gallery sitting, monthly member meetings, and inclusion in group shows, and are rewarded with a one-person show in our Center Gallery at the end of their tenure. The gallery benefits from the diversity that a younger, recent graduate brings to the mix, and welcomes their energy to the running of the gallery.

The first two Emerging Artist members, Hilary Tolan and Sophia Ainslie, have gone on to become long-time Kingston members. Other Emerging Artist members have included Christopher Kane Taylor, Brian Corey, Stephanie Cardon, Ingrid De Aguiar Sanchez and Celine Browning.

This year we welcome Eugene LaRochelle as our newest Emerging Artist member. Eugene is a recent MFA graduate of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts.
