For the second year, the Foundry Art Centre presents an all-media exhibition focusing on the written word’s role in the visual arts. The language of literature can be used in visual pieces literally, symbolically, texturally, referentially, and in many other ways. Context II will once again speak to the intersection between visual and written arts. This exhibition will coincide with our Literary Festival (held in conjunction with the St. Charles City County Library System) and our “Language” themed evening of Second Thursdays: Living Art, an evening of free art activities, education, entertainment, and refreshment for the community. All entries are due by Wednesday, June 21, 2017. Context II will open on Friday, August 4, 2017 with an opening reception from 6:00pm – 8:00pm. A gallery talk will be given prior to the reception at 5:30pm. Three awards will be given at the opening reception, two $200 juror’s choice awards and a $500 or Going Solo exhibition juror’s choice award. This exhibition closes on Friday, September 15, 2017. Calls for entry are available online at foundryartcentre.org or at the Foundry Art Centre, located at 520 North Main Center in St. Charles, Missouri.
