‘Dispatch’ at Catapult Creative House
April 6 - April 26
The First Friday in April will feature “Dispatch,” an exhibition of buttons and patches, opening April 6 at Southeast Missouri State University’s Catapult Creative House gallery. The exhibition runs through April 26.
A reception is scheduled for 5-9 p.m. Friday, April 6, in the Catapult Creative House Gallery. Attendees are welcome to tour the entire Catapult facilities including the Southeast Missouri State University Department of Art students’ gallery and studios upstairs, as well as the Catapult Creative Shoppe which features student work and local business products.
The show will feature artists, thinkers, makers and community members who have harnessed the spirit of contemporary button and patch counterculture. Their work considers these ubiquitous accessories as a platform for individual creative expression. The resulting exhibition is a collaborative endeavor that speaks to the diverse and all-encompassing nature of this media and the ever-evolving role of art and communication in society.
