Exhibition Dates:June 1-July 28 2018

PONSHOP Studio is happy to announce our premiere emerging artists exhibition, “Rise at PONSHOP”. PONSHOP’s thirteenth community show will feature a variety of two-dimensional and three-dimensional art by Virginia’s up-and-coming artists. This new exhibit will shed light on the region’s booming creative population.

“Rise at PONSHOP” showcases work from artists who have been working professionally for less than three years. The artists selected for this show currently pursue a career with the aspirations of making a living working in their respective media. The artwork exhibited demonstrates these artists’ innovations, distinctiveness, and boldness in their individual crafts. Artwork showcased ranges from paintings and drawings to photography and sculpture.

Local artists and PONSHOP colleagues, Margeaux Ducoing and Maddie Huddle, jury the exhibition. Margeaux Ducoing is a fine artist, illustrator, and graphic designer with Bachelor’s Degrees in Studio Art and Music and has a minor in Museum Studies from the University of Mary Washington. Maddie Huddle is a multi-disciplinary artist with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Virginia Commonwealth University’s Communication Arts Department.

“Rise at PONSHOP” will be open to the public this summer for two months. The exhibit will run from June 1, 2018 and end on July 28, 2018. 

PONSHOPis a multifaceted storefront: an artist studio/classroom, gallery and retail store.  The vision of the owners, Scarlett and Gabriel Pons, is to provide a place that embodies what they love: art, design, and creative education.
