Canton Resident Featured in Emerging Artist Ceramics Exhibit with UT Tyler Art Professor 

TYLER (September 27, 2023) – Emily Everitt of Canton, a Master of Arts in studio art degree  candidate at The University of Texas at Tyler, is one of two UT Tyler students featured in the  Emerging Artist 2023 Ceramics Exhibition, hosted by Lee College. 

The annual exhibit includes the work of ceramic faculty across the state along with one or two of  their most promising students working in clay. 

“UT Tyler student work has been featured in this exhibition for the past 15 years,” said UT Tyler  professor of studio art and department chair Merrie Wright, whose work is also featured. “It is a  great opportunity for students to disseminate their research and build their professional exhibition  resume.”

“I am so excited to be chosen as an emerging artist for 2023,” said Everitt. “I am also so grateful for  this opportunity to have my work shown with my professor, peers and other emerging artists.” 

Everitt will graduate with a UT Tyler Master of Arts and Master of Fine Art in studio art in fall 2025.
