Webster Arts invites art submissions for our summer exhibit, RED! Artists are encouraged to interpret the theme broadly. Works depicting the color red, emotions, anger, love, etc. How do you respond to RED? No floor or ceiling hung installations are possible at this time. No video. Call or email if uncertain.

Webster Arts is growing regional non-profit arts center that hosts national juried exhibitions in its 2000 square-foot gallery, a nationally ranked juried art fair, art outreach for recent refugees, a plein air competition, an autumn music series, and other community events. Our patrons are sophisticated art consumers. An independent juror will select work for inclusion in the exhibit and for cash prizes. Artists may be selected for solo or 2 - 3 person shows in the future.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Webster Arts is hosting this exhibit virtually. Artist talks are planned via YouTube and Facebook Live, and every artwork selected for the exhibit will be featured on social media.  Sales are encouraged.

Edna Patterson-Petty works in a variety of media, but she is nationally recognized for her art quilts and the stories they convey. She holds a BFA in Art & Design and MFA in Art Therapy. Her art quilt “Road to Redemption,” was specially created to commemorate Barack Obama’s presidency and was displayed in Washington during his inauguration. Ms. Patterson-Petty’s work has been exhibited in venues ranging from the St. Louis Art Museum to Antioch College in Los Angeles. One of her pieces was on display for three years at the American Embassy in Pakistan, and she has an art quilt on permanent display in Senegal, West Africa.
