We often celebrate and admire those artists that have been around for ages - artists like Lenoardo Da Vinci and Vincent Van Gogh, musicians like Beethoven and Mozart. But what about those young, emerging artists that are beautifying our corner of the world at the present time? Opening on April 23rd, the Arts Council of White Lake - Nuveen Center will be presenting an exhibition from three area artists, all under the age of 25.
Katlyn Knuver became serious about art in high school; exploring illustration and fine art. Today, she runs a design company, Brushwell Designs, where her work is realistic, illustrative, and detailed. In the future, she hopes to explore children’s book illustration and larger scale paintings. You can see some of Katlyn’s work online at http://brushwelldesigns.com/. Outside of art, Katlyn also enjoys kayaking, traveling, and drinking coffee.
Amelia Arnold’s first inspiration to create art came from her mother. She found her mom’s old portfolio and knew she wanted to be able to do what her mother did. Today, she finds inspiration in working to be a true original and one day creating something no one else has. Amelia’s style depends on what she’s trying to accomplish, but one constant is including small details and creating a piece that allows those small details to flow together.

After learning of the multiple jobs and careers an artist could have, Jane Dandron set her sights on pursuing an art degree in college. Inspired by artists like Egon Schiele, Jockum Nordström and Karin “MaMa” Andersson, Jane describes her style as “loose but refined”. You can view Jane’s work, including her thesis project, online at https://janedandron.com/. In the future, Jane hopes to take on artist residencies and run a print shop where she can host printmaking workshops for adults and children. Outside of art, Jane enjoys activities that get her off social media and allow her to clear her head such as hiking, canoeing, and reading.
The Emerging Artist Exhibition will open on Tuesday, April 23rd with a reception on Monday, April 29th at 6:00pm. Be sure to mark your calendars now and stop on out to view the artwork and visit with the artists.
