It Was All Very Queer II, a national juried exhibition examining contemporary queer artists residing within the United States. The exhibition will examine work that investigates identity, social norms, inclusivity, and the celebration of being queer. The St. Louis Artists Guild believes artists within the queer community are an underrepresented group within the arts and deserve a space to express their creativity.
Juror: Brandon Anschultz – Director of Studios and Galleries at the Kranzberg Arts Foundation. Brandon Anschultz is a queer artist, whose work bridges painting, sculpture, and installation. He is originally from rural Arkansas, but has lived and worked in St. Louis for over 20 years. He has exhibited widely in many solo and group exhibitions. In addition to his art practice, Anschultz is an arts professional, having worked with numerous St. Louis arts institutions. He is currently the Director of Studio’s and Galleries at the Kranzberg Arts Foundation.
