The Portfolio Gallery presents “All Colors,” a Visual Arts Invitational & Juried Exhibition at the St. Louis Artists’ Guild. Opening Reception: January 13, 7:00 – 9:00 pm, on view through February 28. “All Colors” will showcase artists from around the country that many mainstream publications have overlooked. Also, the exhibition will promote the abundant artistic talent from within the St. Louis art community and is intended to be an annual destination event that attracts art collectors and artists to the St.  Louis area.



Through jurying and inviting artists, the Portfolio Gallery has put together an impressive group of artwork. This process also allows Portfolio to identify and attract new artists. Ultimately, nationally recognized artists lend strength to the exhibit and the mixing of artists that are both established and emerging furthers the mission of “All Colors” to bring networking opportunities to new artists.


Artists utilize all colors in their creations, and so this exhibition will showcase “images and colors” that tell stories. Proceeds from the exhibit will raise funds that allow the Portfolio Gallery and Educational Center, a 501c3 nonprofit, to provide grants to St. Louis artists, small nonprofits, and community-based organizations.
