Attention to Detail opening reception

Join Art Saint Louis on Saturday, January 12, 5-7 p.m. for a free reception for our first exhibit of 2019, "Attention to Detail." This exhibit will run through February 13, 2019. 

“Attention to Detail” is a all media juried visual art exhibition that will feature artworks that are predominately defined by the details of their composition: Artworks that are either marked by a density of detail or intricacy, or by details presented in isolation or contrast to surrounding elements—all works where significance, meaning or impact is achieved principally in or through detail. 

Learn more about the exhibit on our website here:

This exhibit is juried by St. Louis artists Marie Oberkirsch and M. Shawn Cornell. M. Shawn Cornell is an award-winning plein air painter whose works have been exhibited nationally in gallery exhibitions as well as in plein air festivals and art fairs. In addition to painting, he is ceramic artist and printmaker. Prior to becoming a full-time artist, Shawn worked as a graphic designer and illustrator for 20 years. He is also co-owner of OA Gallery, Kirkwood, MO. Artist Marie Oberkirsch is Director, Central Print, a St. Louis-based nonprofit organization founded in 2015 that focuses on letterpress printmaking through workshops, classes & programs that focus on design and production using historic equipment. Marie holds a BFA in Textile Design from the University of Kansas and an MFA in Fiber from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her understanding of pattern, printing, and weaving, combined with a passion for artifacts, led to an affinity for letterpress printmaking. She has an extensive background in non-profit arts and event management.
