New Perspectives in Drawing and Painting Virtual Exhibition

The St. Louis Artists’ Guild is calling for artists working in drawing and painting techniques. Over the past 50 years, drawing has been elevated from a supporting role to a primary medium, ranking alongside painting as a central art form. Despite its long history, painting continues to evolve and excite, with new generations taking it in unexpected directions. A central pillar of artistic practice, painting also has an enduring appeal for collectors and still dominates the art market. This exhibition takes the conversation forward, showcasing artists working in drawing and painting media that are bringing contemporary topics, issues, and aesthetics to traditional practices.

Juror: Justin Henry Miller - Associate Professor and Exhibitions Coordinator at Southeast Missouri State University

Justin Henry Miller's work emerges from an interest in our inundation of images and the mental layering that occurs as we experience, process, and recall. The elements that compose Miller's paintings are coalescing fragments that teeter between cooperation and individualism. In some instances, the interweaving layers come together to provide a greater clarity, while in others they convolute. Still in some pieces, unique moments ultimately prevail.

The exhibition will be a virtual exhibition being exhibited through Exhibbit.
