The Society of Layerists in Multi-Media will display its National Juried Exhibit, “Do You See the Arch?” from Sept. 5-Oct. 27, 2019, at the St. Peters Cultural Arts Centre, One St. Peters Centre Blvd.
Liaison and curator for the exhibit, Shirley Eley Nachtrieb, said 24 SLMM artists from across the country were juried into this 42-piece exhibit.
The first challenge for artists was to create a piece of art that had an element of an “arch” in the painting. The second challenge was to make it 18 inches by 18 inches.
“The artwork that resulted is astounding,” Nachtrieb said.
The public is invited to view these original pieces while on display at the Cultural Arts Centre.
SLMM serves as an educational society and a network for artists interested in a holistic perspective to their art. Its base of operations is in New Mexico. National exhibitions are held in museums and public or collegiate galleries.
SLMM has produced several books, videos and catalogs in the past. Visit the organization’s website at www.slmm.org
for updates on members’ activities and newsletters.
The SLMM will have its national conference Oct. 8-11 at the Moonrise Hotel, 6177 Delmar Blvd. in St. Louis. The layerists will visit the St. Peters Cultural Arts Centre on Oct. 9 and have a mini-workshop with Nachtrieb.
The group will then move on to a tour of St. Charles and its historic district. Other scheduled stops are at Cahokia Mounds in Illinois and The Arch in downtown St. Louis.
