Please join Art Saint Louis for our first exhibition of the new year, PAINTING, Reconsidered, Deconstructed, a juried group exhibit presented in the Art Saint Louis Gallery in downtown St. Louis. Art Saint Louis will host a free opening reception Saturday, January 17, from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibit will remain on view through Thursday, February 19, 2014.

Gallery hours are Mondays 7 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays 7 a.m.-5 p.m., and Saturdays 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.* *The cafe closes at noon on Saturdays. Closed Sundays & holidays. Free & open to the public.

For this all media juried exhibition, we asked artists to consider how they use paint as a material as well as an object. Works submitted for our Jurors consideration could address paint in a static, object-based way, or the works could be about the action of painting as well as the documentation of that action. Artworks in other media—such as digital media, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture­—that explore, reconsider or deconstruct painting and/or the idea of painting were welcome for jurying, too. All explorations & interpretations of the theme were invited and all styles and techniques were encouraged.

For the exhibit, artists submitted works in all media and our Jurors selected 38 works by 30 Missouri and Illinois artists for the show. Works selected for this show include paintings printmaking, mixed media, photography, 3-d video, video, and more.

Serving as Jurors for this exhibit were Stefanie Jacobson Kirkland, artist, educator and Director of Exhibitions, Craft Alliance Center of Art + Design, St. Louis, MO; and B.j. Vogt, artist, independent curator, Board President, Critical Mass for the Visual Arts, St. Louis, MO.

"It is just such a creative surface that confronts the artist-creator – his canvas on which he builds the world of his intuitions and where in a similar way he regulates the flowing forces of colour and painterly energy in a multiplicity of forms, lines and planes.” – Malevich
