St. Louis Artists’ Guild (MO), Call for Entries: For Every Negative There is a Positive
Deadline: June 29th, 2018, 11:59pm CST
From their call: For every negative there is a positive, for every action, there is a reaction, and for every balance, there is a counterbalance. We have been taught to “see” negative space to better define positive shape or form. How does negative and positive space work in tandem to describe the content and attitude of a work of art? For this exhibition, the St. Louis Artists Guild seeks submissions that explore these concepts either artistically, emotionally, socially or all of the above. Calls for entry are open to all media including but not limited to painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, video, performance, mixed-media, and installation.
Awards: Cash prizes totaling $1000 will be awarded by the juror. 1st Place: $500; 2nd Place: $250; 3rd Place: $150; Honorable Mention: $50; Honorable Mention: $50.
Juror: Tom Huck is a visual artist best known for his large scale woodcuts. His imagery draws heavily upon the influence of Albrecht Durer, Jose Guadalupe Posada, R. Crumb and Honore Daumier. He is a regular contributor to BLAB! and was the illustrator of The Roots’ Phrenology album art in 2003. Huck’s woodcut prints are included in numerous public and private collections, including the Whitney Museum of American Art, Spencer Museum of Art, Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, St. Louis Art Museum. Milwaukee Art Museum, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Fogg Art Museum and New York Public Library.
