21 Under 31: Young Artists to Watch in 2014

Our annual spotlight on emerging artists

By Bonnie Gangelhoff

Welcome to our annual showcase for emerging artists. In the following pages we introduce you to 21 artists under the age of 31—rising stars from across the country who represent the future of realism today. Their chosen genres include landscape, figurative, still-life, and wildlife painting. They have studied at top art schools from coast to coast, and our cover artist, Brittany Weistling, has studied mainly with her parents, full-time artists Morgan Weistling and JoAnn Peralta. Peruse the following pages, and we think you will concur that the future looks bright for both representational art and these talented young artists.
