Exhibiting Self-Examination


The brush of St. Louis artist Camden St. Claire always seems to settle on the unsettling moments. In her new exhibit Gravity of Flight, St. Claire has channeled her own life experiences into highly narrative paintings that depict deeply felt emotional distances. The cast of characters populating St. Claire's lovingly painted domestic situations express a quiet alienation that straddles the line between the surreal and the universal, and in turn motivate the viewer to reflect on his or her own inner-history in greater depth. Gravity of Flight is just one of five exhibits opening at the St. Louis Artists Guild (2 Oak Knoll Park, Clayton; 314- 727-6266 or from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, November 15. Also debuting are Works on Paper by Deb Douglas, The Body Eclectic by Russ Rosener, Pastel Drawings of Models by John Dyess and Clearly Human, an all-media group exhibition dedicated to the human figure that boasts 69 works by 59 artists from across the country. Admission is free and open to the public. All five shows remain up through Sunday, December 29, and the gallery is open every day except Monday.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 15. Continues through Dec. 29, 2013
