October 7 - October 23
Opening Night: Friday, October 7, 6pm - 10pm
Artist Talk: Wednesday, October 19, 6pm - 10pm
Mixed media is the best way to describe Theresa's ever changing body of work. Her training is heavy in drawing, printmaking and photography.
Her layers of grime and paint and heaping dose of urban photography reflect her adoring view of St. Louis. Vintage vehicles and deteriorating urban landscapes are a common theme in her work. She has perfected the photo transfer process. While you can find these photos printed on thin wood panels, she feels her real work is weaving these images into her mixed media paintings. If you know her work, you know her father is a key element. Her Dad face has become her signature. It's her perpetual memorial to her hero.
