The Creative Stimulus Award is an annual prize given by Critical Mass for the Visual Arts which allots $1500 to three St. Louis-based, jury-selected artists, to assist them in creating new work and expanding their practices. This exhibition features a variety of media – including painting, textiles, and installation – that serves as a means for representing fundamentally community-driven work, which is deeply engaged with the St. Louis area beyond conventional gallery confines.
Join us at the opening reception on Friday, August 15 from 5:30pm – 7:30pm, and at our gallery talkon August 27 from 5:30pm – 7:30pm.
