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


We feature artists’ opportunities that are taking place in Missouri, 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.

To have your call-to-artists information posted here, please email with a link to the information on your website.
