Shoebox Artists to Keep an Eye On in March
Shoebox PR is proud to share the exciting work of our artists and their latest exhibitions. We are honored to work with a diverse group of contemporary artists whose work ranges through conceptual, narrative, surreal, technical, historical and scientific. You will find them poetic, heart wrenching, awe-inspiring and more. Our artists are collected; they have press histories, growing resumes and they are making things happen.
If you are planning an important and thought provoking exhibition, our artists may provide the impact you want. We are happy to arrange studio visits, interviews and articles with our growing list of emerging and mid-career artists.
Thank you so much for your continued support. We would love to hear from you.
