CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - Southeast Missouri State University's Catapult Creative house is pleased to announce the exhibit "Re-Framed: The Alchemy of an Object" will open Friday, Dec. 2.
Catapult is located in downtown Cape Girardeau at 612 Broadway.
An opening reception is planned in the gallery from 5 – 9 p.m.
Southeast instructor of art, Joshua Newth, distributed a wide variety of two dimensionally-printed ornate frames to a diverse group of community members, artists, thinkers and makers who were subsequently asked to use the frame as a platform for presenting an idea.
The frame persists as a manner of protection, presentation and as a complement to the art work itself.
Its capacity to highlight the art in which it surrounds while there is often a critical part of the frame that is overlooked.
Conceptually and visually this exhibition will reaffirm and explore the possibilities of the frame increasing the importance of a specific object or idea.
At the same time, it will give the artists a chance to present important and personal ideas to the community.
Attendees are welcome to tour the entire Catapult facilities during the opening reception on Dec. 2.
The "Re-Framed" exhibit runs from Dec. 2 through January 26, 2017.
The hours for the Catapult Creative House are Tuesday through Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
All events, talks and gallery exhibitions are free and open to the public.
