The Foundry Art Centre is celebrating the opening of “Final Draft”, an exhibition showcasing design and illustration in fine art. Design and illustration affects and constructs our daily lives; from websites and social media, to billboards and greeting cards, to the way we navigate our surroundings. Visuals created with purpose and intentional design. While they can be utilized differently, illustration and design have long gone hand in hand. For this exhibition we invite all designers and illustrators to display their work in a Fine Art setting. All media is considered for submission.


This exhibition is Free and Open to the Public. During the Opening Reception the Juror will be handing out three major awards. Two Juror’s Choice awards of $150 each and the best in show receives a “Going Solo” award. The “Going Solo” award allows the artist to be given a solo exhibition in our Gallery III space. The “Going Solo” winner from “Child’s Play”, Bridget Murphy Milligan, will be showcasing her amazing paper installations. 


This exhibition is juried by David Potthast an artist, designer, and educator from all across the state of Missouri. He received his BFA from the Kansas City Art Institute, and an MA and MFA from Fontbonne University. His approach to art and design is aligned with the tenets of the Bauhaus. Mainly that work can be both intellectually controlled and emotional expressive. 


The gallery talks will be at 5:30pm and awards will be given at 7pm.
