SLU Museum of Art: Friday, 4 March 2016

Drawings and Paintings by Linda SkrainkaThe exhibit runs from March 4-May 15, 2016Opening Reception March 4 from 5-8 pm
More than 50 works produced between 1965 and 2013 by celebrated St. Louis artist, Linda Skrainka, are a part of a new exhibition at the Saint Louis University Museum of Art which opens with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, March 4, 2016. The exhibition runs through May 15, 2016, in the Judith and Adam Aronson Gallery at Saint Louis University Museum of Art. 

The exhibit, which is free and open to the public features paintings and drawings by Linda Skrainka on loan from private collections, is a critical survey of her career as an artist. These artworks chronicle the artist's formal concerns and the often overlooked details of everyday life for which she had a keen eye. Excerpts from her personal journal provide additional background for many of the artworks, and contribute to a deeper understanding of their meaning.
Skrainka's study of art history informs her formal concerns of balancing color and composition, while advancing the content. These concerns are consistent throughout the exhibition, from highly geometric compositions depicting interiors to the organic shapes in the Charlie's Gift series.\
