Numbers are used to quantify, rank, prioritize, calculate, and measure. Depending on their context, numbers can be holy, encouraging, devastating, superficial, or so commonplace they are barely noticed. Many works that feature repetition or are part of a series inherently reference numbers. Open to all media, The Nth Degree is a juried exhibition that encourages artists to submit work that uses numbers or mathematics. These influences can be conveyed boldly, subtly, contextually, literally, or simply as inspiration. James Chase, juror for the exhibition, is an internationally-exhibited artist and instructor whose work explores ideas of collection, repetition, and memory. All entries are due by Monday, March 6, 2017. The Nth Degree will open on Friday, April 28, 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, June 9, 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.
