The Essence of Form: November 16 - December 28, 2018
Juried Exhibition | Exhibition Opening: November 16 from 5pm to 8pm | 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.
Exhibit Opens: November 16, 2018 5 to 8pm (juror talk at 6pm and awards presentation to follow)
