The St Louis Artists Guild and Hoffman LaChance Contemporary in partnership, are pleased to announce NewPop I and NewPop II. The St. Louis Artists Guild is teaming up with Hoffman LaChance to bring you a set of solo exhibitions by Stan Chisholm (aka 18andCounting), happening simultaneously with one another, NewPop I and NewPop II. NewPop I, opening Sunday September 5, 2010 from 1-3pm is located at the St Louis Artists Guild and NewPop II, opening September 3, 2010 from 6-8pm is located at Hoffman LaChance Contemporary.

As two inextricably linked exhibitions, like the relationship one would find between twins, NewPop I and NewPop II take a stand and rebelliously stab at the anatomy of pop culture. Through solidarity, topics such as memes, media, icons, commodity and quality will be scrutinized through an array of artworks ranging from sculpture, installation, text, book and drawings. The viewer will not be able to understand one with out the other. It is imperative that both exhibitions be considered, they finish one another's sentence and dot each others "i's". NewPop I and NewPop II is taking the tag-team approach to visual art.
