Exquisite Porch Featured by Huffington Post

Kevin GillespieThe Morean Arts Center’s current exhibit Exquisite Porch has been featured by the Huffington Post.

Today there is a new challenge at the Morean Arts Center in St Petersburg, FL, involving 74 artists organized by myself and exhibition co-curator Amanda Cooper that will culminate in one glorious and fun exhibition titled Exquisite Porch.

For those who are not aware, Exquisite Corpse is most often played with either three or four participants. The idea is to fold a piece of paper in equal parts so each person has a section. The first person draws either the top or bottom making sure that some of the lines in their drawing slightly overlap the next section. Then the paper is passed to the next person who can only see the few lines that overlap their section and not what the first person has previously drawn. Then, after the second person draws they do the same to the next section, hiding their part and so on.

I thought it would be fun to discus with Ms. Cooper her thinking about the exhibition and the process she used in selecting the artists she added to this diverse exhibition.

We would like to thank the Huffington Post for featuring us. This was a great opportunity for the St. Petersburg art scene and our local artists!
