Mark Lemp Footwear: Friday, 14 May 2010

SYNTHESIS: THE EXHIBITION will be opening on FRIDAY MAY 14TH from 7:00PM until 10:00PM.

The word SYNTHESIS means to combine two or more entities to form something new. SYNTHESIS: The Exhibition is the culminating venture of eleven local artists who are coming together to create a gallery-quality space utilizing a non-traditional venue for the public display of art. SYNTHESIS represents the cooperation and the dedication of these artists to convert over 3,000 square feet of empty warehouse space into a fitting display of fine art. SYNTHESIS is cohesive through the exhibition of each artist’s THESIS work. All SYNTHESIS participants are emerging artists, receiving graduate degrees in the Fine Arts from Fontbonne University in St. Louis. Although it is required for the students host a thesis show, the artists of SYNTHESIS volunteered themselves to host an off-campus show of magnitude.

Featured artists include Bo Kim, Naxin Fan, Wanda Cummings, Min-Chih Kao, Chung Hsiu Wang, Lynn Robey, Fo Kwan Yam, and JJ Malone II. The main organizers of SYNTHESIS as well as participating artists are Jami ‘Desy’ Schoenewies, Mark Oakley and Elizabeth M. Willey. On display will be works ranging from painting, drawing, encaustic, collage and other multimedia, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, installations, and more. Individual styles and themes range from traditional classical approaches to contemporary aesthetics described anywhere from the literal to the ambiguous, from esoteric to the poetic. Works on display will be on sale and refreshments including wine will be served. This event is open to the public.

SYNTHESIS will take place in the Mark Lemp Footwear building, located at 1270 North Price Road in Olivette, MO 63132. A special thanks to Jack Mosinger and Mark Lemp Footwear for their many contributions for this event. Following the opening reception, SYNTHESIS will remain on display until June 4th, 2010. Gallery open hours and/or appointment times will be posted on the SYNTHESIS blog.
