About the "Little World Fantasy" Exhibit: In his paintings of landscapes and seascapes, local artist Michael Frank strives to create the impression of viewing a magical place while in a magical moment. The paintings in this exhibit are part of Frank's Little World Fantasy Series, which depicts birds, turtles, toadstools and fish against a mysterious fairy tale-like setting of forest brooks and waterfalls.

About Artist Michael Frank: A dedicated painter for more than 35 years and juried member of the Greater St. Louis Artist Association, Michael Frank finds his subject matter in his worldwide travels but mainly in his hometown of St. Louis.

Exhibit II: "Radiance" by Steven L. Gorman

About the "Radiance" Exhibit: Steve Gorman's painted ceramic sculptures combine his love of painting with his passion for sculpting. The pieces in this exhibit are simplified natural forms that focus on mass and asymmetrical balance, airbrushed with colors inspired by painters Wassily Kandinsky and Georgia O'Keefe. Appealing and artistically designed, they are as engaging as they are collectible.
