Our 4th Regis Center for Art (RCA) Emerging Artist Program exhibition features work by ermerging artists Sarah Kusa (St. Paul, MN), Dustin Steuck (Minneapolis, MN), and Tom Wixo (Lewisburg, PA). Kusa creates sculptures and installations dealing with themes of vulnerability and power, Steuck explores themes of queer identity while engaging the function of social media platforms, and personas fabricated through digital realities, and Wixo's paintings act as both metaphor and distraction from one's own struggle for meaning in an age of…distraction. Each artist deals with the vulnerabilities of being human in distinct and intimate ways, reflecting on connections and boundaries that either enable, threaten or protect identity. 

The RCA Emerging Artist Program is a new opportunity for emerging artists to participate in solo or group exhibitions at the Quarter Gallery in Regis Center for Art at the University of Minnesota. The purpose of the exhibition series is to provide artists with opportunities to exhibit their work, broaden connections with other artists, and gain wider exposure to the arts community in the Twin Cities. The exhibition series seeks to support a diverse range of artistic practices within the visual arts. Participants are selected by a panel comprised of University of Minnesota Department of Art faculty.
