Although this is a curated exhibit, it is still highly competitive. For this exhibit, 20 St. Louis regional artists were eligible to submit works for curating and consideration for this show-those 20 artists were those who earned Awards of Excellence in our 2015 juried exhibits here at Art Saint Louis. Our Exhibit Curator, Terry Suhre, considered over 200 artworks in all media by the 20 artists, and his main role was to select only ten artists and then select the specific artworks to be shown in the exhibition.
Serving as Curator of this exhibit was Terry Suhre, Research Professor and Gallery Director, Gallery 210, University of Missouri St. Louis, where he has worked since 1996. Terry is a seasoned professional with forty years of extensive managerial, curatorial and teaching experience. We are so grateful to have this opportunity to work with Terry and are pleased with the artists and artworks he curated for this year's exhibition.
The 10 artists whose works are featured in the "Honor Awards 2016" exhibition are Shawn Philip Burkard, St. Louis; Christine Giancola, Florissant, MO; Khara Koffel, Jacksonville, IL; Linda Mueller, St. Louis; William H. Neukomm, Webster Groves, MO; Jaime M. Sawka, Champaign, IL;
