CALL FOR ART: Almost every artist in history has emulated and learned from those that came before. ‘Mimic the Masters’ is an opportunity to research, learn and inventively come up with your own work that reflects a particular artist’s technique and/or a different interpretation of the subject.
- Painting, drawing and sculpture are all accepted.
- There is a $10 fee for Art House artists and $15 fee for non-Art House artists for up to 2 works. There will be monetary awards given for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places.
- If desired, Art House artists may bring in 2-3 other pieces non-related to the theme as space allows.
- In an envelope attached to your Mimic the Master piece we need:
a) a small color photo (max 3×5) of the inspirational painting you are appropriating or lampooning
b) a small (index card size) typed paragraph about the artist and a sentence or two about your intent (if needed). See Below Example:
- Include the following completed inventory form with your submission(s): MimicMastersInventory_2018
- Submitted works must be for sale. Art House retains a 35% commission on all sales.
- Receiving dates, Feb. 6-10
- Reception and awards Feb. 16th 5-7pm

Art House is a vibrant and welcoming center founded on the belief that creative arts enrich lives. Through rotating exhibits, focused instruction and educational outreach, our mission is to create opportunities for the economic and artistic growth of established and emerging artists and to nurture the community’s appreciation and understanding of the arts. The building at 531 Court Street in downtown Fulton, Missouri, is the home for the nonprofit Art House gallery as well as two other businesses: Court Street Custom Framing and Photography by Studio Seven. In just three short years we have become the artistic hub in Fulton’s Brick District. We are a center for photography, framing, and the promotion and celebration of art for our community. The Art House gallery is pursuing its 501c3 charitable organization status. The goals for this charitable enterprise include the promotion of the arts throughout our community through the display and sale of fine art, the support of local and regional artists, and the hosting of art education and other events. The Art House also serves as a centerpiece in the efforts of the Brick District to bring more events, tourists, and businesses to our historic downtown. The gallery is open five days a week. We represent over 100 regional artists and feature paintings, ceramics, jewelry, textiles, hand-made greeting cards and much more. The Art House hosts classes teaching painting, ceramics, jewelry making, drawing, fiber arts, and other fine arts as well as other events. People of all skill levels can explore the fun of creating art with music and drinks during “Fun Art Fridays.” The gallery is also available as a venue for receptions, parties, and other events. Our two major regional events in the year are Callaway Plein Air, held the last weekend of May, and Autumn on the Bricks, held the second Saturday in October. Exhibits are rotated multiple times per year. View our exhibit schedule for updated exhibit dates and details. Opening receptions are free and open to the public.
