Call for Work: Deadline 8-10 July

New exhibit explores the animal kingdom

Call For Art that explores the full range of the animal kingdom

Whether you enjoy painting the scenes of a safari or take macro shots of dragonflies, a new call for entry might be what you are looking for. Framations Art Gallery in St. Charles is asking artists to use animals as their subjects matter in their upcoming exhibit "All Things Wild". This will be an all media exhibit of work focusing on the animal kingdom, from the teeny tiny to the great and mighty.

Framations offers artists and viewers alike the opportunity to suggest exhibit themes they would like to see brought to life. Through their website, these ideas can be shared for future exhibits. According to co-owner Sarah Merideth, this theme has been requested repeatedly. "We are often asked to do a wildlife exhibit. But I think when people hear wildlife for an art exhibit they focus in on either domesticated animals or certain types of woodland creatures, like deer and moose. We wanted to be clear that this exhibit spans the full range, anything at all included in the animal kingdom." With this thought in mind, the gallery anticipates a wonderful variety of work to be entered.

The exhibit will be on display July 15 - Aug 25, 2016 and entries will be due to Framations July 8 & 9: 10-6 and July 10: 12-5.

The Juror for this exhibit will be Lisa Ober. Lisa is a portrait and still life painter, workshop teacher, and owner of OA Gallery in St. Louis, MO.

 Artists can find the full entry details, including size restrictions, at www.framations.com.

Framations is located at 218 North Main Street in St. Charles, MO. For more information visit the website at www.framations.com or call the gallery at 636-724-8313. Framations offers juried exhibit opportunities for artists, as well as solo exhibits.
