Painting: Reconsidered, Deconstructed
January 17-February 19, 2015
PAINTING: Reconsidered, Deconstructed was an all media juried exhibition that asked artists to consider how they use paint as a material as well as an object. Works submitted might address paint in a static, object-based way, or be about the action of painting as well as the documentation of that action. Works in other media—such as digital media, drawing,photography, printmaking, sculpture—that explore, reconsider or deconstruct painting and/or the idea of painting are welcome. All explorations & interpretations of this theme were invited. Open to St. Louis regional artists 21+. From the artworks submitted, there were 38 works in a variety of media (drawing, photography, mixed media, video, and painting) by 30 Missouri & Illinois artists featured in this exhibit. Jurors: Artist Stefanie Jacobson Kirkland, Director of Exhibitions & Grand Center Programs, Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design, St. Louis; B.j.
