We often hear about "emerging" artists—but whence do they emerge? From somewhere below the vast, shifting surface of the gallery world, a fact that Mahler Fine Art manager Jillian Ohl keys in on in the title of the group exhibit she curated at the Raleigh gallery. Submerged features a dozen artists who are either new to the Raleigh/Durham area or just beginning to show their work, although some of the names, such as Davis Choun, might already be familiar to those who frequent Raleigh art havens such as Artspace and Visual Art Exchange. Others include Austin Caskie, Conner Calhoun, Dare Coulter, and Britt Flood; all are post-undergraduate but younger than thirty, working in mediums from experimental sculpture to abstract figure painting. "As an artist myself, I've noticed my friends and peers creating amazing work that gets little recognition in the local art community," Ohl says. "Taking the initiative, I collected what I believe to be the best of the next generation of artists. This all came from my belief that young artists have to support each other rather than be competitive." After this opening reception, Submerged keeps bubbling up through the month of March.
