New and Returning Salon Members
Theme and Specifications
Theme: American Regionalism. Think Thomas Hart Benton, John Steuart Curry and Grant Wood as well as the Luminist style — George Caleb Bingham and Henry Lewis. These artists created stories of the rivers and plains of the Midwest in America. Please interpret this theme to create your own story!
Exhibition Panel Size: Space limits us to use panels no larger than 40 in (101 cm) wide X 72 in tall (101 cm X 183 cm tall. Panels may be smaller – not larger.
All exhibition panels will be on the outside gallery walls. If you really have to paint something larger, please contact Margaret von Kaenel upon registration to explain your needs and she will do her best to accommodate you.
Demonstration Panel sizes: All Demonstration Panels will be on easels or tables only. Demonstration work must be no larger than 40 in wide X 72 in tall (or 1 m X 2 m) in order to fit on the easels. If you prefer a table format, please contact Margaret when you register. Tables are limited and available on a “first come, first served” basis.
Primed panels for demonstration will not be provided by Salon Saint Louis 2021. You must bring your own. Push pins, acrylic paint, water buckets palettes, paper towels or rags, and tape will be provided by SSL 2021
