OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, Jan. 31, 5:30 – 8:00pm | FREE

Last held in 2011, Dirty Fingernails Say A Lot… is a celebration of the skill and patience of artists who, in an age of seductive high-speed solutions, still prefer to work up a sweat and get their hands dirty. Printmakers are encouraged to submit works of representations, abstract, or nonobjective works for consideration. Only original, hand-pulled prints will be included.

This exhibition is Free and Open to the Public. During the Opening Reception the Juror will be handing out three major awards. Two Juror’s Choice awards of $150 each and the best in show receives a “Going Solo” award. The “Going Solo” award allows the artist to be given a solo exhibition in our Gallery III space. The “Going Solo” winner from “Out on a Limb”, Sharon Hutson, will be showcasing her colorful portraits and paintings of life. In our Ameristar Gallery Jennifer Mishra will be having her Emerging Artist show.

This exhibition is juried by St. Louis native Paul Breuer earned an Associate Fine Art degree from St. Louis Community College, and going on to attend Washington University in St. Louis after receiving a full two-year scholarship from the Women’s Society of Washington University. Breuer graduated in 1984 with a BFA in painting and drawing, and then worked with Robert Malone, master painter, in the graduate print shop at Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville.
