Christopher St. Louis: Eclectic Order On View October 30 – August 31, 2020 Warrior Way Gallery Reception: December 14, 6 – 8 p.m. “I think the medium is less important than the story. My artwork often originates from what I see and experience along with the emotions felt in result. Artwork is generally created with intent, but I must admit that ad-libbing can be a lot of fun and allows me to continue to create new things. My personal intention is to create memories that will potentially evolve into heirlooms.” - Christopher "Leo" St. Louis Christopher "Leo" St. Louis’ life…

He cuts meticulously measured, wavy ribbons into sheets of paper, producing portraits so similar to photographs that they appear to have tiny details such as individual hairs and faint facial wrinkles. In contrast, when…

August 8, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - January 10, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

Overtly political, deeply emotional, and subtly humorous, Julie Dzikiewicz weaves feminist parables into immense encaustic wax paintings. Monumental like an altarpiece, they inflame the spirit; illuminated like a tapestry, they give shape to immortal stories. Yet, Dzikiewicz’s work refuses a singular order. Using ancient wax techniques to explore present-day topics, Dzikiewicz is unflinching. She strikes hot, skewering the heart of the difficult issues she addresses, including themes of violence, racism, and misogyny. As an artist in the Arches program at the Workhouse Arts Center, the grief and triumph of the once imprisoned Suffragists serve as the inspiration for her contemporary…
