The State of our Shared Land: September 28 - October 24, 2018

Juried Exhibition | Submission deadline: Friday, August 24, 2018, 11:59pm | Juror: Wassan Al-Khudhairi 

The word politics is derived from the Latin words polites “citizen” and polis “city.” Politics as a term used in everyday life first appeared in the 15th century and referred to the state and its administration of public life. For this exhibition the St. Louis Artists’ Guild is looking for works of art that examine the state of our shared environment. As a society how are we linked together through the decisions of our leaders? What is your reaction to the shifting tectonic plates of today’s political landscape? Propaganda is part of our political dialogue. Is fake news the same? Do you trust the news you receive? How are you or someone you know personally impacted by the policies and actions of government today? We are looking for all media in this exhibition including but not limited to painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, video, and performance art.

The Essence of Form: November 16 - December 28, 2018

Juried Exhibition | Submission Deadline: Friday, October 12, 2018, 11:59pm | Juror: Fran Skiles

For this exhibition the St. Louis Artists’ Guild is excited to announce Fran Skiles as the juror. Fran’s work is a naturalistic layering of photography, paint, ink, paper, and fabric that captures the essence of creation. From the micro to the macro nature repeats itself in a diversity of forms. We are fascinated by visual artwork that detects the structure of the physical world both seen and unseen, imagined and observed. How do you capture this phenomena? This is an all-media exhibition looking for works of both abstraction and realism.  We are particularly interested in how artists’ capture form from a well-timed photograph, to the manipulation of paint, drawing media, fabric and clay, or a mixture of all of them.
