Event Description

Gateway Gallery is excited to be featuring the dynamic abstract paintings of Sheldon Johnson in his exhibit “If This Be Not I”. Guest artists include  wildlife photographer Jim Irwin and  mixed media artist Marilyn Callahan.  This show runs May 23 through June 29 with an opening reception from 6 to 9 pm on Friday June 8 at 21 North Bemiston Ave, Clayton.

Johnson is known for the vibrant color and brushstroke usage that is apparent in each of his abstracts. This show builds on that foundation with a very large politically based painting reflecting today’s political upheaval and inspired by the work of well known painter Philip Guston.  The large oil blends abstraction and surreal elements leaving more conceptual symbols to populate his smaller pieces.

Despite an ongoing commitment to his MFA program at Fontbonne University, Johnson has and continues to exhibit widely in the Midwest including Cedarhurst Museum in Mt Vernon, Il, The Foundry Art Centre at St Charles, Contemporary Art Museum, St Louis, and the Kansas City Artists Coalition Gallery. His work is collected nationwide.

Jim Irwin’s photography is largely directed toward wildlife, using the close-up to capture natural features that are usually missed in real time due to the nature of movement in these animals’ lives and the need for humans to not get too close.  

His images give us a chance to see the personalities that emerge.  A juried artist for Greater St Louis Art Association and Best of Missouri Hands, you will find Irwin’s work shown widely in the St Louis region.
