The biennial Four by Four 2016: Midwest Invitational Exhibition recognizes and encourages artists working in all media who reside in the four-state region of Missouri, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kansas. The exhibit features a body of work by four artists – one from each state. This year's exhibition will include work by Andrew Casto (Kansas), Sandra Luckett (Arkansas), Anne Austin Austin Pearce (Missouri) and Holly Wilson (Oklahoma) . A juror of awards is selected on a rotating basis from one of the four states – this year’s juror is Kelly Schindler, Associate Curator at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. Schindler is tasked with awarding a $3,000 cash prize to one artist for their body of work. Andrew Casto was awarded the top prize for his body of work.
A catalog of the exhibition will be available for purchase.
