You can reach them most easily during weekday business hours (Mountain Standard Time, they are located in Denver).

The method by which ALL exhibitions are juried at Art Saint Louis is always a fair and blind/anonymous process. What this means is that at no time before or during the jurying process do our Jurors know the names of entering artists. Exhibit Jurors are presented all entrants' JPEGs in an anonymous digital image presentation and the only information provided to them pertains to the artwork and includes the following: artwork title, year, media, dimensions, and method of presentation (displayed on the wall, sits on a pedestal). To repeat: Jurors are never shown the names of any artists entrants during the jurying process. All artworks that you submit for jurying are presented one after the other in the presentation that the jurors view. So, if you are artist #25, your artworks/entries are in the presentation after artist #24 and before artist #26. From the jurying presentation and information provided about the artworks, the jurors make their selections for the final exhibit. Artwork selection decisions are in part based on a set of specific jurying instructions & criteria relating to the theme of the exhibit as well as specific conditions & rules of the Gallery. This is a FAIR jurying process. Jurors often do not even see names for selected artists until they arrive to the Gallery to view the final exhibit on the Gallery walls, months after an exhibit has been juried.

"Organic by Nature" Exhibit

Call For Art focusing on organic shapes inspired by nature

In a series of exhibits highlighting the elements of art, Framations Art Gallery has touched on line, value and texture. Earlier this year, the gallery hosted an exhibit called Geometric by Design, which asked artists to use the element of shape to gear their compositions toward those focused designs. Now, in a companion exhibit, entitled Organic by Nature, the gallery is asking artists to change their way of thinking.

In this new exhibit, the gallery is challenging artists to explore instead the more irregular or free flowing shapes we see in nature. With no other limits to the subject matter, the gallery expects to see a wide array of works encompassing this theme. Gallery owner Sarah Merideth stated "Many artists might not even realize that their work might lean in one direction or the other, either towards the more geometric or towards the more organic. Here, we are asking artists to consider this concept in their work and see where that focus takes them."

Open to all media and subject matter within the organic element, Framations Art Gallery will be accepting walk in entries from artists from the St. Louis region for this exhibit the weekend of July 14 - 16. Framations is open 10-6 Friday and Saturday, and 12-5 on Sunday. There will be an Opening Reception for the exhibit on July 21: 6-8pm.

The Juror for this exhibit will be Victor Wang. His incorporation of collages of figures from China's Tang Dynasty represents his Chinese heritage and is a constant reminder for him of where he came from. The texture and earthiness on the canvas's surface are inspired by the texture of the soil on the farm where he worked in China.  As an artist, Wang's contemporary figurative work in oil often incorporates imagery inspired by the sunflower farms where he spent his childhood and later in life, in a "reeducation" camp during China's Cultural Revolution. Wang uses the human face as a vehicle to paint human experiences - worry and wonder, sadness and pleasure - which reflect the emotional stage directly tied to his immigration experiences.

For our purposes, a portal can be an architectural feature: a gate, a doorway, a window, a mirror, or a tunnel, that frames or isolates or adds a new dimension to the image. In a fictional sense, a portal is also a magical doorway that connects two locations in space or time.
For "Portals," we're looking for images that use these devices in intriguing ways. All capture methods and processes are welcome.

She has been the Gallery Editor for Light Leaks Magazine, a contributing writer for Diffusion, Don't Take Pictures, Lucida, and F Stop Magazines, has written book reviews for photo-eye, and has provided the forewords for artist's books by Tom Chambers, Flash Forward 12, Robert Rutoed, Nancy Baron amongst others.
