‘Love at the Glove’ art event planned at SIU Surplus Gallery
Bill Sieber, a third-year graduate student in Southern Illinois University Carbondale’s master of fine arts program, couldn’t have sculpted a better night for the annual “Love at the Glove” Valentine’s Day art show tradition.
The student-run art show is back, and the traditional Friday event this year actually falls on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14.
Love at the Glove is an event that is dedicated to “matters of the heart.” The one-night event features art and performances by SIU students, faculty and the community.
The theme this year is “Love in All of its Manifestations.”
The event is planned from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Feb. 14 at the Surplus Gallery inside the Glove Factory Studio Arts Building at 432 S. Washington St. in Carbondale. Price for admission is $5.
Separately, visitors also will have the opportunity to support The Women’s Center in Carbondale with donations of canned and nonperishable food items, toiletries and hygiene products for its clients.
Artist submission is open to SIU students, faculty, and community artists.
Artists who want to participate in the event can bring their exhibit submissions to the Surplus Gallery from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Feb. 12. The cost for each exhibit piece is $5. The exhibit piece fee includes one free admission to the event.
