Marbles Gallery: Saturday, 7 March 2009

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 7 from 6-9 p.m.
Meet the artist and enjoy a glass of wine
Free and open to the public

Mosaicist and painter Benji Rowan tells stories through visual cues in the images he makes. Shapes, colors, and figures come together to produce two dimensional narratives. His mosaics are decorated stories…stoories that leave plenty of room for interpretation. Even when the only information is color and shape, he gives clues through the titles of a work to explain the situations. His paintings, while more representational, allow each viewer to draw their own conclusions. His work can be thought of as stills from a motion picture – what came before, or will come afteer, is for you to decide.

Abstract painter Timothy E. Wagner illuminates the world of our natural and urban surroundings inspired by form, atmospheric space and color. Wagner develops a specific visual language that defines subject matter and content. The paintings evolve in layers that vary from thin transparencies to thick gestural forms to combine in an expression of his thought process and experience. Every layer of paint, every mark on the picture-plane becomes a crucial meaning of its history and the eventual resolution of the statement.

Open Mondays 1-3 p.m. Call 314.621.4744 to confirm additional hours or for an appointment.
