KIT KEITH: I LIVE ALONE
Wiliam Shearburn Gallery
665 S. Skinker Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63105
William Shearburn Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works on paper by St. Louis artist Kit Keith. Inspired by outsider art and artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Andy Warhol, and Jim Dine, Kit will often paint over found materials from thrift stores, old magazines and advertisements. This exhibition, though, is unique in the sense that it consists of over 50 female portraits, each one painted on found onion skin letterhead and created over a few months’ time during the pandemic. Each portrait is reflective of the artist’s disposition on the day on which it was created. Whether happiness, angst, relief, contentment, frustration, anger, joy or loneliness, each portrait conveys in itself, a feeling.
Please join us Thursday evening, June 10th from 5:30 – 7:30 for a reception for the artist. The exhibition will remain on view through July 16.
