Hours of Idleness-A Photographer's Journey in St. Louis

City Wide Open Studios 2011

Posted in art, awareness, photography, Uncategorized by Jason Gray on July 15, 2011

Every year, the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis sponsors an event that brings the art viewing public directly to local artists. The premise behind City-Wide Open Studios is for St. Louis’ artists to open their studio doors in an organized fashion, choreographed by CAMSTL, so that art viewers, art buyers and art interlopers have the chance to peruse the local talent at hand.

This is the first year that I will be participating, so come out and show me some support. I will have dozens of paintings, drawings, and photographs on display. I will be showing on Saturday, July 30th, and my studio is located at 3434 Magnolia Avenue in Tower Grove East.

The event kicks off with a reception for the artists at “the Contemporary” (information from CAMSTL’s site below).

JULY 26TH. 6:00-9:00 PM.


To kick-off the week-long celebration of local art, CAM will be hosting an Open Studios Preview Party where visitors can visit CAM’s Main Galleries to see one piece of artwork by each participating artist. For that night, and the entire following week, each piece of art will be displayed with a label of the artists name and number that corresponds with the printed map – allowing the public to see the artwork beforehand and map out their weekend studio visits. Join CAM and over one hundred local artists for a night of celebrating the local art scene and all that it has to offer. Pi on the Spot – Pi’s mobile pizza truck – will be selling mini pizzas all night!
