Tilton + Oeler in Elements of Abstraction, St. Louis

We are excited to announce that two of our works were selected for exhibition in the St. Louis Artists’ Guild’s Elements of Abstraction national juried show. The juror for the show, Claire Ashley, teaches Contemporary Practices, Painting and Drawing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Dave’s Last Light and our Tilton + Oeler collaboration Wind Wave will be on exhibit from November 20, 2015 through January 2, 2016 at the Guilds’ new location, 12 North Jackson at Forsyth. There will be an artists’ reception held on opening day and a gallery talk on December 9.

Previously, three of Dave’s pieces were shown by the St. Louis Artists’ Guild at their Ann Metzger Memorial National juried exhibition held in 2010. One of his works, Dismembered Lakes, won the Karen Mills Prize at that show.

Photo Op on view at Minnetonka Center for the Arts

We loved that we were able to attend the opening reception of Photo Op. The Laura H. Miles Gallery was beautifully hung with a number of photographic works from each of the 15 artists. We were pleased to be able to chat with the other artists and more pleased to share the night with all the friends and family who came to the opening. It was a lovely mix of artists and art lovers. Thanks for coming!

The show remains on view through October 28. The Minnetonka Center for the Arts is open daily from 9am to 4pm as well as Tuesday and Thursday evenings until 9:30pm. There is a cafe on site that serves a limited menu of fresh items weekdays from 9:30am to 1:30pm.

Ekphrasis – Art/Speaks
As we mentioned last month, Edgewood Orchard Galleries is hosting a benefit show for Write On, Door County. As part of the exhibit, Write On is hosting its first-ever ekphrasis challenge, Art/Speaks. Ekphrasis is a literary description of, or a commentary on, a visual work of art. Write On and Edgewood are encouraging everyone to write to the artwork in the galleries and sculpture garden and submit the results to Write On. Selected works will be posted.

The event began Saturday, September 26 and it was fun to see Edgewood full of prospective writers as well as art lovers. For those of you who cannot get to the gallery, Write On is featuring nine works on its website. We’re happy to say that our collaborative work, Walk this Way, is one of those. So sharpen your pencils, fire up the laptop, or break out the tablet; check out the images online or better yet, head over to Edgewood Orchard and let your inner poet or essayist be inspired by all of the beautiful artwork on display for this benefit show.

Edgewood Orchard (4140 Peninsula Players Road, Fish Creek) is open 10-5 daily through Sunday, November 1. The Write On Benefit Show (10% of all exhibit sales to Write On) is held in conjunction with the annual Gifts from the Heart group show.
