- After initial review by the Art Show Committee, the Committee will determine the specific piece to be exhibited. Only one entry per artist.
- The Committee shall decide on the suitability of any art, its framing or support structure, and any visual or written material that might accompany a piece in deciding the suitability of any work. The Committee is mindful that all segments of the community and all age groups use the display area. Specifically, the following objectives are paramount in selecting and developing the Art Show.
- To present a variety of exhibitions by local artists in the visual arts;
- To help local artists, emerging student artists, and senior citizens, increase their public exposure;
- To promote cultural arts programming in the City of Wentzville, Missouri and throughout the St. Louis region through exhibitions that represent the values of the City of Wentzville and
- To present exhibitions that will create public notoriety and interest to sustain cultural arts programming through the funds raised through art shows and exhibitions.
Selections will necessarily be chosen based on subjective criteria, as taste in art is subjective. The Art Show Committee will base decisions on collective personal knowledge and expertise of art, knowledge of the values of the City, and audience consideration.
