Opening Friday, March 10, the latest Foundry Art Centre juried exhibition Luck of the Draw explores the theory of luck, investigates happenstance, or portrays this abstract concept. Themes within the exhibition will also investigate superstitions, myths, and rituals. St. Charles artist and instructor Grant Hargate has curated artwork from a wide range of entries submitted from artists across the nation. Hargate will be in attendance at the opening reception and will host a gallery talk at 5:30pm before the reception begins.
Alongside Luck of the Draw, South Carolina sculptor Logan Woodle, award winner from the Foundry Art Centre’s 2015 exhibition Going Home, will exhibit in Gallery III. Woodle is an artist and educator whose handcrafted metalworks are an homage to his agricultural heritage. Wisconsin-based artist Rirostro will exhibit his expressive, caricature-like painted portraits as part of the Emerging Artist Series in the Ameristar Gallery.
Enjoy food and drinks while chatting with Luck of the Draw’s participating artists at the opening reception and be sure to head to the mezzanine level to visit with the Foundry Art Centre studio artists. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public. These three exhibitions will open Friday, March 10, 2017 and close Friday, April 21, 2017. Financial assistance for these exhibitions is provided by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
