In compiling our thoughts towards exhibit themes, we often turn to interesting verbiage that inspires imagery. Now we offer that form of inspiration to artists. We ask that you share artwork inspired by words in any form. Perhaps a quote, a passage from literature, a newspaper article, a favorite poem? How do words inspire your thoughts, your creation, your passion? How do you respond? Artists are asked to provide the text, along with the source to credit those words. Open to all media.
Brilliant Color (all media)
April 24 - May 28, 2020
Entries Due: April 17 - 19
(more info coming soon)
An all media juried exhibit of work focusing on the power and significance of color in imagery.
The hue, saturation and intensity of color determine its overall feel or impact. Here, we ask artists to focus on the power and significance of color in their imagery. Color can be brilliant in either its vibrancy or its methodical use in the work. Use of color should be the focal point. Will it be bold or subtle? Warm or cool? Calming or exciting? Use color to speak volumes!

An Idea of Order @ St. Louis Artists' Guild
November 15 - December 28, 2019
Submission Deadline: September 27 at 11:59pm
The title of this exhibit is inspired by the poem "An Idea of Order at Key West" by Wallace Stevens. Artists have employed mathematics to bring visual harmony to our surroundings with tools such as the golden ratio, perspective and grid systems. From the intricate symmetry of Islamic tile design, to the measured drawings of Agnes Martin, mathematics can create visual harmony and give a sense of order to what appears to be chaotic.
An Idea of Order seeks work in all media that employs systematic, structure, number, pattern, and shape as an inherent component of expression. Artworks that are concerned with the logic of shape, quantity and arrangement as organizing principles are appropriate, as well as works that are related to sequence, timing and movement.
