The hardest part for most aspiring artists is just getting your name out there. Those first big breaks are often what elevates creatives from mere hobbyists to lifelong professionals—not to mention the corresponding public validation. For the featured artists in Rise, PONSHOP’s latest juried group show, that dynamic is a palatable one. Designed exclusively for two- and three-dimensional Virginian artists who have been practicing for under three years, the showcase is a chance to see who’s up-and-coming on the Fredericksburg arts scene. The photography, painting, and sculpture was selected for each artists’ innovativeness and distinction within their medium. An opening reception for Rise will be held on Friday, June 1 from 6–9 PM; show will be on display through July 28. Learn more at ponshopstudio.com.
