"It is the mission of MySLArt.org (My St. Louis Art) to provide creatives of all disciplines in the greater St. Louis area opportunities for self promotion, inspiration, and connection through our free social network and public events."
Please support our locally owned sponsors, without all of the community support from them we would not be able to continue to assist artists with achieving their goals!
Using clay as their medium, and a kiln as an incubator, the artists from Fine Line Studios have been hand-building a new ceramics collection. We are excited to present our third annual winter exhibition at SOHA Studio and Gallery.
This year’s ‘Repair’ exhibition is a revisiting of our ‘Breakable’ exhibit of 2012. With eager anticipation, we await and act as surrogate to the birth of these new works. Brooding masks, fantastical and endearing creatures all have a place in the collection.
These ceramic sculptures bear the hand marks, scars and loving stories translated by artists living with developmental disabilities. Their intuitions are built on a foundation of traditional methods and teachings.
As we seek healing in this new year, we use clay as a most primal medium. We look to the qualities of earth to mold, flex and reshape our futures.
Join us for our Ceramics Exhibition, ‘Repair’. All sales go directly back to our artists, offering a sense of personal empowerment and inclusion in our community. For more information, you may contact Julie Malone at SOHA gallery at 314-497-5202. Or visit www.sohastudioandgallery.com.
Complimentary refreshments will be available. Donations to SOHA Studio and Gallery are appreciated.…

Photographic Artist: Lori Peterson
Lori got involved with MySLArt in the summer of 2013 and has shown at several of the 33 shows and has also helped by photographing some of the opening receptions. She has a dark and slightly twisted style that is just a lot of fun to look at. Her works can contain models, artist make-up, skulls, abandoned churches and WWII era gas masks. She is owner of Lori Peterson Photography in St Louis and a contributing writer for Digital Photography School. Even with the depth of knowledge and experience that she has, I have seen her push and challenge herself on a regular basis. At the 33 December show, Lori photographed the Opening Reception using a Lensbaby, which gave everything kind of a fish-eye effect. Those photos are on the MySLArt Facebook page.
Here is a little more about Lori in her own words.
Stats: My birthday is June 17th (and my husbands is June 18th, so we celebrate our birthdays together!). I have 3 kids, 3 cats and one dog. I collect unusual objects like mummified animals, skulls, and vintage gas masks.
Weapon of choice: Canon 5dMarkii
How did you get involved with MySLArt? I was at an art opening and there was one of Jenny Churchill's business cards on a table. I picked it up and saw the website and went over to check it out. It was a big game changer for me professionally when I found MySLArt.
How did you get started in Photography? I have always loved being behind the camera. I learned to shoot on my Mom's old Brownie camera. Film was expensive so she taught me from an early age to get it right in camera. I started a genealogy project after my mother passed away in 1996 and found relatives that I had never met and we all shared photographs. I put together albums of the images and when I saw how moved my…Continue
