This juried exhibit showcases the talents of Artists Informed by Time -- artists aged 70+ -- who, by making art, share their thoughts & ideas about the world and themselves with us. Jurors Lynn Friedman Hamilton and Carolyn Miles selected 63 works by 51 artists from Missouri and Illinois for this exhibition.
Artworks featured in this multi-media exhibit address myriad subjects and themes and are created in a wide array of styles, artistic techniques, and media. A non-thematic exhibit, the theme of this exhibit really ends up being the artists themselves and who they are and what they are making as they mature. Some of the featured individuals have been artists their whole lives while others delved into artmaking upon retirement. The featured artists hail from all walks of life, abilities, and experiences. The 63 artworks featured in the show include ceramics, collage, drawing, metal, painting, paper, photography, printmaking, sculpture, textiles, and more.
Jurors for this exhibition were Lynn Friedman Hamilton and Carolyn Miles. Lynn is Founder and Executive Director of Maturity and Its Muse, a St. Louis-based organization that engages older adults and celebrates aging; and Carolyn is owner and Director of Atrium Gallery, St. Louis, MO.
