'Love at the Glove' 2018 is set for Feb. 16

Love at the Glove, the Valentine’s Day art show tradition, returns to the Surplus Gallery in the Glove Factory at Southern Illinois University Carbondale this week.

The event is from 7 to 10 p.m., Feb. 16. Admission is $5; $3 with donated canned goods or toiletry items for The Women's Center in Carbondale. Event organizers note, however, that Love at the Glove typically includes adult themes and is not, therefore, an event suitable for children or minors.

The Surplus Gallery is inside the Glove Factory at 432 S. Washington St., Carbondale, and is home to studio and exhibit space for School of Art and Design students.

Artist submission is open to faculty, students and community artists. Artists who want to participate in the event should bring their exhibit submissions to the Surplus Gallery from 1 to 7 p.m., Feb. 13; from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Feb. 14, and 2:30-6 p.m., Feb. 15. 

The cost for each exhibit piece is $5. The exhibit piece fee includes one free admission to the event.
