New Perspectives in Drawing and Painting Virtual Exhibition 
December 1-31st, 2021 

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

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.

All works must be 4”x 6” (post card size) and mailed through the postal service. 100 lb cover (270 gsm) is a popular thickness for postcards.

Juror: Casey Whittier

Casey Whittier received her BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute and MFA from the University of Colorado Boulder. Her work is often born from one of the following experiences: an indescribable feeling of excitement; a nagging contradiction of desire; a need to share something that she cannot yet explain; an obsession; a question or series of questions; a desire to respond to or reflect on a thought, feeling, or event; recognition of something poignant or absurd; misunderstandings. 

Utilizing a variety of forming methods in glass and clay, Whittier reinterprets objects from her daily experience, unites the landscapes of her reality with the landscapes of daydreams, exploits the visceral qualities of the materials, and ponders the power of shared experience. The physical impressions that come through rolling, tearing, squishing, dipping, pushing, pinching, molding, casting, and scratching become representations of touch, of thought, of time spent.

Whittier is an advocate for community engagement through the arts. She teaches ceramics social practice at the Kansas City Art Institute. Whittier works from her home studio and serves as Vice President for Artaxis.org.  Her work can be found at www.caseywhittier.com and www.palmpetals.com.

Cash prizes totaling $1000 will be awarded by the juror.
