Serendipity

August 6-September 15, 2016
Serendipity is a juried exhibition featuring 44 artworks where unexpected discoveries occur in the process of art making. Oftentimes, artists begin making artworks and then something unexpected occurs during the art making process—a "happy accident." In art, this happens often when artists set about to create one thing, yet something unplanned happens to the artwork that surprisingly and successfully changes the final outcome. This exhibit aims to present artworks that demonstrate how the occurrence of accidents, chance, and discovery benefit the creative process as well as the final artwork. Supposedly, serendipity is not about luck—which is random—it is about chance and we are hoping to examine the role that it plays in art making, art and the lives of artists. All explorations of this theme were invited. Artworks in all media, techniques and styles were encouraged. This juried exhibit was open to regional artists 21+ living in 200-mile radius of St. Louis. Jurors:
Melissa Whitwam, artist, Executive Director and Exhibitions Manager, The Foundry Art Centre, St. Charles, MO; and Ken Botnick, artist, Professor of Art, Director, Kranzberg Book Studio, Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, Washington Universtiy in St. Louis.
