A National Juried Exhibition
Arts Council of Southeast Missouri
Cape Girardeau, MO
Exhibition Dates: June 5 – 27, 2015
Deadline for Entries: April 7, 2015
If civilization is what separates humankind from the animal kingdom, the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri asks artists to cross that line and become uncivilized. Artists across the United States are invited to submit their works depicting the world’s Wild Things. From household pets to rainforest creatures to ocean dwellers, artwork must depict a member, real or imagined, of the animal kingdom.
Juror: Ruth Ann Reese is known for her surreal porcelain sculptures where animal forms merge with human figures and flora grafts to fauna. From these fantastic beings, psychological questions concerning the nature of identity naturally emerge. At present, she is a studio artist living in St. Louis, MO and the founder of Reese Gallery, where she curates exhibitions of other emerging and mid-career artists.
