The Blooming Artists Project connects student artists with master artists from the St. Louis area. Students in K-12 created works of art in their classroom and submitted their photos and statements. Master artists who have made a name for themselves and have influenced art within our community are invited to select a student’s piece and then connect with that young artist. The master artist ultimately creates a work of art inspired by the student’s work. The project culminates in a formal gallery opening displaying both the student’s and master’s work side by side. The intent is to show young artists that their ideas have merit and can inspire even seasoned artists. This is our second annual show, and we are thankful to all involved.
Our wonderful Master Artists for this year's event are:
Philly Alex Johnmeyer
Allison Norfleet Brueger
Marie Pierce-Ruhland Koehlinger
We look forward to seeing all of our student and master artists' work side by side, and hope you can join us!
