Four by Four 2014: Midwest Invitational

The biennial Four by Four 2014: Midwest Invitational Exhibition is intended to recognize and encourage artists working in all media who reside in the four-state region of Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kansas. The exhibit featured artwork by four artists – one from each state – who each exhibited a selection or series of their current work. This exhibition included work by Sage Dawson, Denny Schmickle, Mark Cowardin and Emily Wood. Judges for the exhibition are selected on a rotating basis from one of the four states – this year’s judge hailed from Kansas and was tasked with awarding one artist a cash prize ($3000). Sage Dawson was awarded the top prize for her body of work.

A catalogue of the exhibition is available.
