St. Louis Artists' Guild: Sunday, 3 April 2010

All are invited to the St. Louis Artists' Guild, Saturday, April 3, 1-3 p.m. for the Opening Reception of Young Artists' Showcase 2010 and, in the Moi Solo Gallery, The Beauty of Order: Andromeda in Eros² New Works by Kathleen Ahner.

Young Artists' Showcase is an all media exhibition of local high school students' artwork. The exhibition will showcase artwork by students between the ages 15 to 19 living within 150 miles of the St. Louis Artists' Guild. The Young Artists' Showcase encourages and supports the artistic talents and creativity of a wide segment of young, emerging artists in the St. Louis community; many of whom will experience their first opportunity to exhibit in a professional gallery space. The winning artist will receive a $500 scholarship prize from Emerson, while others will receive cash and merchandise awards from the restricted Guild Prize Endowment Fund. Juror: Ron Thomas

The Moi Solo Gallery hosts the The Beauty of Order: Andromeda in Eros2, a solo exhibit by Kathleen Ahner. Developed much as a woven tapestry, the images and poetry of The Beauty of Order: Andromeda in Eros2 marry as warp and weft of a single body. Neither an illustrated narrative poem nor a series of annotated etchings, the two forms marry as equal partners, ebbing and flowing, mysteriously forming a genetically distinct archetypal body; and as in any other marriage, subject to the themes of union common to us all: darkness, light, freedom, loss. The archetype of the human heart mirrors that of the cosmos: poem and print speak in one voice.

Gallery Hours: Noon–4 p.m. Tuesday–Sunday
