My first solo art exhibition, entitled "Background Noise", will be at Third Degree Glass Factory from 6 to 10 pm, on August 18th, 2017. The paintings I have created were inspired by photographs from my own life. The exhibition tells the story that begins in the city, and as one moves their gaze across the 32 foot long wall, shares a narrative of the contrast between living in a city versus a country lifestyle. These every day objects and landscapes act as background noise to our lives. The exhibition will stay up until September 13th. I hope to see you all there!
During Third Degree's "Third Friday" open house, there will be glass blowing demonstrations, fire spinner performances, and food trucks. This is an all ages event, and admission is FREE! No RSVP required!
Our May program will be painter Alex Johnmeyer. As co-chairman of the GSLAA sponsored Blooming Artists Project, Alex will tell us about the project and show us photographs of the exhibit's reception held earlier this month at 1900 Park Gallery.
Alex will also tell us about their journey as a painter in the St Louis area. Alex creates paintings based upon their photography. The scenes and still-lifes they create are either naturally occurring or created in the artist's studio. They meticulously recreate the photography in either a combination of watercolor, gouache and ink, or acrylic, sometimes combined with different texture media.
"I feel my artistic style is a mix of photo realism and expressionism. When one of my paintings shows texture, whether actual or implied, I feel it pulls the audience into the piece."

I always knew I wanted to be an artist. However, finding my own style? Well, that took a little while longer. If one is to be considered a “professional” artist, most gallery owners and customers like to see a cohesive vision, a unifying note that ties all the work together. I have never felt the need to choose just one medium, and often switch between watercolors and acrylics. I like to think about the piece I plan to create, and what media and style I think will best help me express the message I hope to send out into the world. Others say that the unifying note in my work is my individual voice. That’s the best compliment I think I’ve ever received.
When one of my paintings shows texture, whether actual or implied, I feel it pulls the audience into the piece. Ten years ago, when I first started my business, Super Keen Creations, one of my first customers asked for an abstract painting. She was a horror fiction author, and desired to walk into her office and feel inspired to write ab...
