The St. Louis Artists’ Guild presents, What’s Your GPS? opening September 15 and running through October 11, 2017. The GPS or Global Positioning System can instantly pinpoint your location and lead you to a destination. This national juried exhibition explores the transformative relationship between individual identity and a physical space, geographic location, or inhabitance. Exhibiting artists conceptualize how topographical characteristics evoke a sense of place through photographic prints, hand-crafted fiber art, photorealistic oil and watercolor paintings, digital collage, screenprints, glass sculptures, and installations. Cash prizes totaling $1000 will be awarded by Professor Laura Strand, head of Textile Arts at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville during the Artists’ and Awards Reception on September 15, 2017 from 5 to 8 pm. As an extension of the What’s Your GPS?, STLAG announces the selected artists and solo shows in the Curated Gallery: Meredith Foster, Lighting Fires, Live Edge; Caroline Philippone, Jeju Island in Summer; Melissa Whiteman, Storm Gallery. What’s Your GPS? will conclude with a Closing Reception Gallery Talk with the Curated Gallery artists on October 11, 2017 at 7 pm.
