Those Who Dream by Night II (all media)

Please note there was previously a typo on the Entry Dates!
A juried exhibition of themed work illustrating an element of dreams, fantasy, or the abstract; or otherwise distorting reality. "All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." ~T.E. Lawrence

An all media juried exhibit exploring the idea of details. Artwork should be focused on the details of an image, perhaps zooming in on an area showing great detail or subject matter that has great detail overall. Perhaps a focus on texture or the technique of macro photography. The theme is open to interpretation by the artists and can be explored in any medium, 2D or 3D.
Aug 31 - Oct 11
Entries Due: Aug 24 - 26
(more details coming soon)
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?

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.
