Event Description

Opening reception held for the artist 6-9 p.m. July 20

(Clayton, MO/April 13) Gateway Gallery “Silhouettes Tell Stories” exhibit is about the simple but elegant shapes Joyce Yarbrough cuts with her scissors.  In addition, guest artists Linda Wilmes’ paintings and Greg Kluempers’ photography will be on display. This show runs July 4 through Aug 17 with an opening reception from 6 to 9 pm on Friday, July 20 at 21 North Bemiston Ave, Clayton.

            Yarbrough’s contour “drawings” emulate shadows to convey the mystery or mood by their basic mass.  Naked silhouettes capture the essence of elegant simplicity to tell a story, often without color or detail, whether the art is a feature cut with fine detail, a child’s profile, or a botanically correct silhouette.  A few of the places her work has been shown and collected include the St. Louis Art Museum, museums in China, Pennsylvania and Germany.

After graduation from Missouri University, Yarbrough worked at Hallmark Cards as she continued her studies at Kansas City Art Institute. Traveling to China and Poland has expanded Joyce's view of the world and the heritage of other countries. Throughout her career she has worked in the arts - as a graphic artist, illustrator, art director, marketing coordinator and gallery owner.

 Along with her murals, Linda Wilmes is an accomplished Plein Air painter, participating in many of the onsite Plein Air competitions. Her paintings display vivid color, sparkling sunlight and mysterious shadow.  Greg Kluempers’ photography explores the relationship of forms, textures and colors of the everyday world, sometimes creating abstract geometrical images.
