The Golden Hour
September 16-October 26, 2017 
"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. Jurors Olivia Lahs-Gonzales, artist, Director, The Sheldon Art Galleries, St. Louis, MO (since 2001). She previously served as Assistant Curator of Prints, Drawings & Photography, Saint Louis Art Museum (1996-2001). She holds an M.F.A. in Art History from Columbia College, Chicago, IL.
