2020 Pure Enjoyment is Virtual!

Dear Artist,

Brewer Science is excited to announce our first virtual “Pure Enjoyment” art exhibit. A virtual art exhibit provides an excellent opportunity for artists and photographers to share their passion of the arts while maintaining their own health and safety.

“Pure Enjoyment” will remain a juried art exhibit sponsored by Brewer Science in cooperation with the Springfield Regional Arts Council and Arts Rolla.

Instructions and requirements for submitting work are provided below.

If you have questions, please contact Tracy Jenkins, tjenkins@brewerscience.com or 573-364-0444, ext. 1427.

Best regards,

About the Juror:
Denene Taliaferro received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia with studio emphasis in fibers and photography. Her extensive knowledge of 2- and 3-dimensional visual arts has assured her selection as a juror and exhibit coordinator at both local and national levels.

Ms. Taliaferro broadens her artistic experiences by both teaching and participating in a wide variety of arts-related workshops, classes, and demonstrations for children and adults. A Springfield native with deep roots in the Ozarks, she is an active member of the local arts community, volunteering her time to various events and activities for the Springfield Regional Arts Council.

All artwork submitted must be for sale. There is no entry fee; however, a 25% commission will be collected on all artwork sold during the exhibit. Please remember to account for this commission in your selling price. The Springfield Regional Arts Council will accept payments for sold artwork made out to SRAC; Springfield Regional Arts Council will then write a check to the artist for the purchase price less the 25% commission. Shipping or pick up must be arranged and paid for by the purchaser and may be negotiable between the purchaser and the artist. PLEASE PROVIDE ACCURATE CONTACT INFORMATION.  SRAC can be contacted by calling (937) 324-2712.
