This Year’s Special Guests

Fred’s Emerging Artist

To honor Fred and his dedication to promote new exciting artists, we will be featuring an artist each year who is new to our show. They will all have the honor of displaying their work in Fred’s show space. We will give them the encouragement and exposure that they would have received by being mentored by Fred!

2017 Emerging Artist – Tobias Sauer

As a child, Toby would run out of his house first thing each morning and spend as much time as possible in the outdoors of Lewiston, Montana. He and his father would hike, hunt, kayak, and afterward, he would come inside and his mother would teach him about creativity and artistic expression. When learning to draw, he would get frustrated that he couldn’t make things look “just right” like her. She told him, “These are 40-year-old artist’s hands. You have 5-year-old hands. When you have 40-year-old hands, you’ll be able to make it look just right, too.” Toby’s hands are not yet 40, but he has never stopped working to make his artwork look just right. He seeks out expert artists with whom he has studied to help him hone his craft, and delights in passing that knowledge on.
