Title Call for Entry: Juried Exhibition
Organization Foundry Art Centre
Closing Date
Location St. Charles, MO

The Foundry Art Centre is seeking submissions for “Comfort & Joy”, an exhibition showcasing artworks reflecting happiness, serenity, and peace. All media will be considered. As it will coincide with the holiday season and New Year, this exhibition will be a relief from the hectic nature of the year’s end, and a warm welcome to the new decade.

Artists are invited to submit up to three pieces of artwork. Entries must be submitted by October 28, 2019. “Comfort & Joy” will open with a reception on Friday, December 20, 2019, from 5:30-8 pm in the Main Gallery and Grand Hall. The exhibition will be on display from December 20, 2019 to January 24, 2020. Three prizes will be awarded at the Opening Reception: two Juror’s Choice Awards of $200, and a Going Solo Award that offers the recipient a solo exhibition in one of our galleries.

All media in 2D & 3D forms will be considered. 2D work must be suitably framed and prepared to hang with all hardware readily attached. There is no minimum size requirement and larger pieces must be able to enter the gallery through an 84” x 71” doorway. Once installed, work may not exceed 11 feet in height. Any installation or digital works must speak with Exhibitions Manager
to coordinate presentation.

Entry fee: Artists may submit up to three works for a non-refundable processing fee of $35.
