The Arts Council of Southeast Missouri is currently accepting entries for the 2017 Annual Regional Juried Exhibition. Artworks will continue to be accepted until Saturday, October 14. The opening reception for the exhibition will be held on Friday, December 1 from 5 - 9 pm. The show will remain on display until January 27, 2018 and will feature pieces by regional artists. 

The Arts Council of Southeast Missouri's Regional Juried Art Exhibition was developed to provide a forum to demonstrate the diversity of this five-state region and the artists who live here. We encourage artists to submit works that interpret any aspect of the Southeast Missouri region as well as its bordering states. Work must interpret the people, places, or things that are representational of this region. 

Exhibition Dates: December 1, 2017 - January 27, 2018

Joshua Newth was born in Toronto, Canada, and raised in metro Detroit. He received his Bachelor of Science in Zoology from Michigan State University and his M.F.A. in Painting from Wayne State University. Through painting and drawing, Newth explores the ostensibly forgettable and yet grand fragments of our daily lives, revealing their exquisite nature and beauty. In this exploration, he strives to separate everyday objects from their traditional environment, isolating them in space or framing them in a new context, ultimately reinforcing their importance and grandeur. Newth exhibits his work both regionally and nationally, and currently teachers at Southeast Missouri State University.
