Call for Work: Deadline 25-27 November 2011

Simple Treasures

Simple Treasures is an exhibit about keeping it simple. There's no judge, no jury, no commission, no media restrictions, no theme. We are looking for giftable pieces (priced under $100) that you would like to display during the holiday season. This exhibit will be on display December 2 - Jan 5. The printable Prospectus can be found here.

St. Louis Area FoodbankThe other part of this exhibit is the opportunity to have a reduced entry fee on each of your pieces if you donate items for our food drive benefiting St. Louis Area Foodbank. Food is such a simple part of our lives that so many of us take for granted. Each week, an estimated 57,100 people rely upon the St. Louis Area Foodbank for food assistance. In 2009, they distributed over 22 million pounds of food. Our food drive will begin on Oct 21 and continue through Dec 2. For each item you donate, you will receive on free entry into a drawing for a $100.00 Gift Certificate to Framations. Enter Often!
