Upcoming Calls for Entry
Thresholds (all media)
Aug 31 - Oct 11
Entries Due: Aug 24 - 26 (Full Entry Details Here)
An all media juried exhibit exploring the thresholds we encounter in life, whether they are physical, emotional, or other measurable forms. A threshold can refer to anything that is a measurable boundary that can be crossed, moved past, or possibly transitioned through. We might refer to a visible threshold such as a doorway, an exit, an archway, etc. Or perhaps a personal threshold, such as pain or other stimuli, that can be measured either physically or mentally. There are thresholds in biology and also in education. In psychology and climate. What threshold will you cross?
Heritage and History (all media)
Dec 7 - Jan 17
Entries Due: Nov 30 – Dec 2
Heritage is defined as “something that is handed down from the past: This can refer both to physical items or property, or something passed down such as a tradition. History on the other hand, is more a record or study of the events that have occurred in the past. Both can tell a story, but often from a different perspective. Being in a historical area, we are surrounded by the physical attributes that make up the heritage of St. Charles, which also engage us in the history of the area. With so many ways to explore, we ask artists to examine either their own personal relationships to these topics as they relate to their sense of self, or to explore the heritage or history of our area.
Beyond the Lens XIII (media specific)
Jan 25 - March 7
Entries Due: Jan 18 - 20
Our 13th Annual exhibition of photographic works in all disciplines. Open to all subject matter and styles of photography.
Texture (all media)
March 15 – April 25
Entries Due: March 8 - 10
Texture is the surface quality of a work of art. It can be distinguished by both its perceived visual and physical properties. Here, we ask artists to focus on the physical textures that add to the surface. These often create a deeper response for the viewer, as the depth brings more to examine and engage the viewer. Here we ask artists to use texture in their work to explore depth and richness and draw in the viewer.

This all media exhibition invites artists to submit works based on their use of a "colorless" palette.

For Every Positive, There is a Negative @ St. Louis Artists' Guild
August 3 - September 15, 2018
Entries Due June 27, 2018
Seeking work that highlights the importance of negative space as it pertains to defining positive shape or form. You cannot have one without the other. Negative and Positive space work in tandem to define the content and attitude of a work of art. How does the relationship of negative and positive space affect your communications and interactions with the viewer? Open to all media and concepts that relate to the interaction between negative and positive space, for every action there is a reaction, and balance and counterbalance.
Menagerie @ Art St. Louis
August 4 - September 13, 2018
Entry Deadline: May 14, 2018
This juried exhibition is a follow-up to our 2016 "Creatures" exhibition, which was a tremendously exciting & fun show. Works for this juried exhibition may be about animals, beasts, creatures, real or imagined. All explorations & interpretations of this theme are invited. All media, styles and techniques encouraged.
Drawing is a foundation of all art making. Erasing what one has drawn also may come to play in the act of the process, thus Pink Pearl—that bubble gum pink eraser many artists have used. This all media juried exhibit is all about drawing as well as the removal/erasing process. The act of drawing (and erasing) expands to and includes all media. We invite all explorations & interpretations of this theme and encourage all media, styles and techniques.
