Life Interrupted is an all media curated visual art exhibition featuring artworks specifically created during the COVID-19 Stay at Home Orders in the St. Louis region between March, April and May of 2020.

For this exhibit, artists were asked to consider important questions in their artworks: 
How has creating in isolation changed or enhanced your media and artwork? 
Have you turned inward and focused on things close at hand or are you taking a more extended/wide view of your world?
 Is your view peaceful, chaotic, hopeful, hopeless? 
This extended time at home has meant missed milestones for many of us, including birthdays, anniversaries, holidays--how has that affected you and your artwork? 
What are the ideas, subjects, themes, styles or concerns that have motivated, preoccupied, infused or inspired your creative expression during this time?”


131 artworks in all media were submitted by 52 Art Saint Louis members for consideration by exhibit Curator Robin Hirsch-Steinhoff, Artistic Dir...

DONE! Six of my watercolor paintings will be made into 36 inch reproductions (by the amazing Mark Florida) and installed in the new SLU hospital opening in June! I've been working on these since November. I am so thankful for the opportunity. There will be a book published about the artists whose work will be featured in the hospital, and I thought I would share what I wrote.

"It seems the years of my life are marked by my trips to the Botanical Garden. It's truly a beautiful place... where my family and I have shared times of joy, serenity, and meditation. In the summer, we celebrate at the Japanese Festival, and in the winter, we sip hot cocoa and cuddle for warmth as we stroll through the holiday lights. I vividly remember the first time we brought my daughter to feed the koi fish when she was 3 years old, and now it's become a tradition every year that we visit in the spring, when the tulips are in full bloom.

All of my artwork is inspired by my own photography, so for me these aren'...

Alex Johnmeyer is the October featured artist at the gorgeous Renaissance Hotel, and you'll have the exciting opportunity to see them in person at the Opening Reception on Wednesday, October 16th, from 7-9pm! There will be live music, and Alex will have their prints for sale as well! Alex's work will be on display from October 1st through the end of the month.

It's been two years since Alex's last solo exhibition! Come see what they've been working on since then! Alex's art works are inspired by their own photography, which are either naturally occurring or created in the artist's studio. Alex then meticulously recreates the photography in either acrylic or watercolors and ink. Each of the resulting works is rich in its own story and emotional symbolism, inspired by color theory and societal iconography.

“I am presently exploring the ideas of community diversity, modern consumerism, and american nostalgia. I feel my artistic style is a mix of photo realism and expressionism. I prefer...
