We do studio visits with artists who are at different stages of their career and training.  When you're able to see a variety of work and consider it over time, you get a great overview on influences, trends, and of course originality.  After a while, you start to get a sense of where there might be some real talent with "legs".  With emerging artists it's always interesting to see who has the ability and the stamina to keep the work going once they have finished their formal training.  We're glad to see that this artist is still at it.  And we're looking forward to learning who's coming down the pike.
