Focus on the Details
Exhibition Dates: Dec 12, 2014 - Jan 22, 2015
In this juried exhibition, we look to the idea of details. Artwork focuses on the details of an image, perhaps zooming in on an area showing great detail or subject matter that has great detail overall. The theme was open to interpretation by the artists and could be explored in any medium, 2D or 3D.

Art and Awareness
At Framations, we strive to periodically host exhibits that incorporate awareness in areas that affect our community. In this exhibit, we looked to the idea of details that are often overlooked in our every day lives. For those of us fortunate enough to have enough food to eat, we rarely think about hunger. But for those in our community that struggle, this is a detail that needs focus every single day. In co-operation with the St. Louis Area Foodbank, Framations offered their customers an opportunity to help with these important details that make a big difference in the community. Each week, an estimated 57,100 people rely upon the St. Louis Area Foodbank for food assistance. In 2009, the Foodbank distributed over 22 million pounds of food. The numbers are incredible. In tough economic times, simply having adequate meals for yourself and your family means a lot. During our food drive, both the participating artists and Framations patrons donated unopened, non-perishable food items and toiletries at Framations from December 5 - 14, 2014.  Two barrels of items and plus cash donation were collected and donated to the St Louis Foodbank! Thank you to all those who participated in this years food drive!
