The Catapult Creative House Student Studios will hold their Autumn exhibition titled “Un, In, and None” Nov. 4 featuring the work of 11 Southeast Missouri State University Department of Art student artists and opening on the First Friday in November.
Through object and idea the exhibition creates a dialog investigating the confluence of life and image. The works are on display at Catapult Creative house, 612 Broadway in downtown Cape Girardeau.
As part of a program to promote community-based and integrated art making, each of the artists has been awarded studio space at Catapult Creative House. The exhibition will showcase a range of work from the individual artists that highlights their personal and professional artistic explorations as a part of the Southeast Missouri art community. These artists explore the physicality of the human condition, its relationship to nature, and the role of art in contemporary society. In addition to the exhibition, attendees are welcome to tour the studio spaces, view ongoing projects and engage with the artists.
Among the exhibited work are pieces by Alyssa Johnes which offer an overt reverence for nature, wild places and untamed spaces. As a graphic designer, Johnes’ gentle juxtaposition of image and design creates a glimpse into the untapped beauty that surrounds us, while also reminding us of the splendor of a wilder world.
In connection with the exhibition reception, the Catapult Creative House Student Studio artists and Catapult jewelry artists are proud to present their Studio Pop-Up Shop. This Pop-Up retail space will present the opportunity for visitors to purchase one-of-a-kind prints, handmade jewelry, whimsical cards, ceramics and additional unique works of art created by the participating artists.
The Catapult Creative House Student Studios is happy to announce the addition of four Southeast artists to the Pop-Up Shop. Among the participating artists is Mitchell Dill with his 20153 line of jewelry and Brandi Muller’s Phantasmal Arts wearables. Both artists use reclaimed materials and local ephemera, from earrings comprised of glass excavated from the Mississippi to re-appropriated comics and vintage photos turned into buttons.
The exhibition reception is scheduled for 5-9 p.m. Nov. 4, and is located on the second floor of Catapult Creative House.
