Philip Slein Gallery: Friday, 12 September 2014

The Philip Slein Gallery is pleased to present Extension of Thought, the lat-est exhibition of paintings by John Zinsser.

Reception: Friday, September 12th, 2014 6-8 pm runs through October 11th. 

Great art has always extended thought. Plotinus called the art object an ob-ject of contemplation. But, you might ask, what does one contemplate when one contemplates abstract art? In a word, beauty: pure aesthetic bliss. The abstract ex-pressionists re-defined beauty, and John Zinsser, a devotee of abstract expression-ism as well as early minimalism, creates his own version of the beautiful by riffing on both.

In addition, the gallery will present New Work by landscape painter Jeff Aeling. The Aeling exhibition will feature large-scale, luminous panoramas of the Mississippi River where it meets the Missouri River, north of St. Louis.

Hours: Tues.-Sat. 10am-5pm.
