You are invited!

A Surface Design Association Exhibit

A workshop is planned in conjunction with this exhibition.
Rio Wrenn will join us for the opening reception and artist talk at the gallery on August 22. Her workshop Dyeing and Printing with Rust and Tannins will be held at the Textile Lab at SIUE on the weekend of  August 23 and 24.  There are still openings for Rio's workshop.  To inquire about registering click here.

The reception and artist talks and gallery are free and open to the public.  Please join us to meet the artists and see this wonderful work.  

  • Call ahead to Art & Design office at SIUE before visiting during weekdays to view the show  618-650-3073.  The gallery hours for fall semester won't be known until August.  We'll keep you posted and will strive to keep the gallery open as much as possible for the run of the show.
  • A very special thank you goes to the art faculty at SIUE for generously giving up their annual faculty show in order that we might have these dates for our exhibit after we were ousted from our previous venue.  It turns out that was a blessing in disguise.  Can't wait to see this show installed at the beautiful new gallery at SIUE. 
  • A very special thank you also goes to the Surface Design Association which awarded us with a Small Events Grant!
