Art St. Louis Exhibit

Remember Susan and Elizabeth from the Venus Envy exhibit at Mad Art earlier this year? Well she's finally getting her moment in the spotlight at America the Beautiful and Beyond at Art St. Louis this weekend and for the next six weeks. "This exhibit was juried from the actual artworks with 93 St. Louis regional artists submitting 152 artworks for the jurors’ consideration. From the 152 artworks, Purlee & Weiss selected 49 works by 44 Missouri & Illinois artists for the exhibition."

For this show I decided to change the title of the painting to "Use it or Lose It". The meaning of the painting stays the same, but it just didn't seem to make sense to keep it titled Elizabeth and Susan when it is out of context. (Meaning not in the group of paintings I made for the Venus Envy Exhibit.) The painting serves as a wake up call for everyone in this country to be more pro-active and use our right to vote, or we might just lose that right.
If you are interested in seeing it and some other great works of art please go down to the new Art St. Louis Gallery on Washington Avenue this weekend. The opening reception is this Saturday, August 9 from 6-8 PM. Unfortunately, I wont get to go because I will be in Batavia, IL this weekend for Art in Your Eye. I will post more about that tomorrow if I get a chance.
