Foundry Art Centre, St. Charles | Figurative Works exhibit (2014)


We feature calls for artists that are taking place in Missouri or within 25 miles of the Missouri borders, have been created by a Missouri organization, have a strong Missouri link, or are programs of the federal government. We do not list opportunities for which artists must be members of an organization, but we do list opportunities that are limited to a particular region of Missouri.

We also post Missouri grants for artists and Missouri conferences of interest to artists and arts organizations.

To have your information posted here, please email with a link to where the full information can be found online.
