William Shearburn Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works on paper by legendary St. Louis artist Kit Keith. Inspired by outsider art and artists such as Robert Rauschenberg and Andy Warhol, Kit will often paint over found materials from thrift stores, old magazines and advertisements. This exhibition consists of over fifty female portraits, each one painted with acrylic 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.
