The St. Peters Cultural Art Centre to host SLMM Exhibit This Fall
By Shirley Eley Nachtrieb
The Society of Layerists in Multi-media will be exhibiting their National Juried Exhibit, “Do You See the Arch,” at the St. Peters Cultural Arts Centre, One St. Peters Centre Blvd., off Mexico Road in St. Peters, MO 63376 September 4 through October 26, 2019. Liaison and curator for the exhibit, Shirley Eley Nachtrieb, stated that twenty-four SLMM artists from across the country were juried into this 42- piece exhibit. The first challenge for these creative artists was to create a piece of art that had an element of an “arch” in the painting. The second challenge for the artists was that the artwork had to be 18” x 18” in size. The artwork that resulted is astounding. The public is invited to attend.
SLMM serves as an educational society and a network for artists interested in a holistic perspective to their art. Their base of operations is in New Mexico. National exhibitions are held in museums and public or collegiate galleries. Art leader, Cindy Dubois says that St. Peters is honored to have SLMM display their work there. SLMM has produced several books, videos and catalogs in the past. Their website http://www.slmm.org is continually updated and a source of information of members’ activities. It also includes several newsletters published throughout the year for those readers wanting to know more about the organization.
The SLMM organization will have their National Conference at the Joe Edwards’ Moonrise Hotel, 6177 Delmar Blvd, St. Louis, MO October 8-10. While in the St. Peters area, SLMM president, Laura Pope, and members will visit SPCAC and have a mini workshop with Shirley Nachtrieb, creating a memento of their visit to the area. They will then move on to touring St. Charles and its historic district. Also, on their scheduled stops in the St. Louis area, are Cahokia Mounds and the St. Louis Gateway Arch.
