RECLAIM: Opening November 17

 

Exhibition Dates: November 17, 2017 - December 30, 2017
 
The St. Louis Artists’ Guild is accepting entries for RECLAIM. This Midwest regional (IL, IN, IA, KS, MI, MN, MO, NE, ND, OH, SD, WI) all-media juried exhibition seeks artists with a sincere concern for the environment. We also encourage artists who make work that confronts mass consumerism to enter, and we are particularly interested in art made from repurposed and recycled materials. This type of artwork is rooted in the tradition of found object and assemblage projects, but also includes self-reliant individuals who see multiple uses for items and materials. By using materials in a new and fresh way, artists are a mirror for society’s use of short-lived and disposable products.
