“EAC’s Third Juried Show” is themed this year! The theme is entitled “Structure(d)” and encompasses all media. When thinking about “Structure(d)”, what does that mean to you. Structure has many meanings to many people. Webster’s dictionary defines “Structure(d)” as; (1) something arranged in a definite pattern of organization, (2) organization of parts as dominated by the general character of the whole, (3) the aggregate of elements of an entity in their relationships to each other. What does “Structure(d)” mean to You?

The Edwardsville Arts Center, a community visual arts center located on the campus of Edwardsville High School, Edwardsville, Illinois and the juror for this year is Paulette Myers.
