Student Artists to Display Their Work Feb. 3 at Catapult

Catapult Creative House Student Studios will hold its first exhibition of the New Year Feb. 3, titled “Assistance and Assistants,” featuring the work of Catapult student art assistants and select Southeast Missouri State University art students. The exhibition, opening the First Friday in February, will highlight the work of those student artists who are so integral to the success of Catapult. As part of a program to promote community-based and integrated art making, this exhibition will showcase a range of work from the individual artists that highlights their personal and professional artistic explorations as a part of the Catapult Creative House and the Southeast Missouri art community. These artists explore the physicality of the human condition, its relationship to nature, and the role of art in contemporary society. In addition to the exhibition, attendees are welcome to tour the studio spaces, view ongoing projects, and engage with the artists. In connection with the exhibition reception, the Catapult Creative House Student Studio artists and Catapult jewelry artists are proud to present their First Friday Studio Pop-Up Shop. This February, the Pop-Up retail space will present the opportunity for visitors to purchase one-of-a-kind handmade Valentine’s Day cards. Simultaneously, the Pop-Up Shop will present work from the handcrafted jewelry line 20153, Phantasmal Arts wearables, as well as ceramics, and additional unique works of art created by participating artists. The exhibition reception is scheduled for 5-9 p.m. Feb. 3 and is located on the second floor of Catapult Creative House at 612 Broadway in downtown Cape Girardeau.
