The Golden Hour
"The Golden Hour" is a juried visual art exhibition that features artworks about specific times of day where the light is just right: the Golden Hour, as well as dawn and dusk. The Golden Hour is that perfect time of day when the light is just right, typically right after sunrise and before sunset when the color of the light as it reflects on buildings, the sidewalk, and other things is pink, red, yellow, and golden. However, there are other times of the day when that perfect color of light can be captured & depicted in one's artwork. The act of finding that color of light and capturing it, depicting it, is a goal here. We will also consider images of dawn and dusk for this exhibit. This is an all media exhibit: this specific color of light and these times of day can be re-created and interpreted in all artistic forms, media & interpretations, from photography, painting, embroidery, and ceramics to video, metalsmithing, drawing, and any other media in which one creates artwork. All explorations & interpretations of this theme are invited. Artworks in all media, techniques and styles are encouraged. Open to artists 21+ in the St. Louis, MO region.
Open to artists 21 years of age and older living in the St. Louis, Missouri region and surrounding 200-mile radius*.
*ONLY artists from the St. Louis, Missouri region may enter exhibit--if you live further than 200 miles, we appreciate your interest, but you are not eligible. Sorry, but Chicago, IL and Kansas City, MO are further than 200 miles and are not in the St. Louis region.
