Announcing Watercolor Artist’s 2014 Ones to Watch!

An emerging artist is one on the cusp of greater prominence, a painter whose work we’re likely going to be seeing a lot more of in national exhibitions, workshop programs and other art publications—our “Ones to Watch.” In the December 2014 issue of Watercolor Artist, well-respected instructors and exhibition jurors define the qualities that they think make this year’s Ones to Watch special. In turn, the up-and-coming artists share the creative breakthroughs, both big and small, that have propelled their current work into the limelight.
