FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Cherokee Street Gallery... Has Arrived
Inaugural exhibition: Friday, June 29th • Reception: 6:00-10:00PM
St. Louis, MO - Cherokee Street Gallery, St. Louis’ most anticipated new gallery, is open at 2617 Cherokee Street with a preview of the space currently on view and an inaugural exhibition set for Friday, June 29th, 2018.
Cherokee Street Gallery will be hosting exhibitions that explore the intersection of nature and iconography. “We will curate artwork that evokes the miracle of the natural world through humanity‘s distilled symbolic language,” says gallery founder and artist Benjamin Lowder.
Art world legend, Patti Astor, joins Lowder as the Gallery’s Curatorial Advisor. Patti will bring her significant experience to St. Louis, having curated shows in the 1980’s by Futura, Dondi White, Kenny Scharf, Keith Haring and Jean Michel Basquiat at her New York City based, Fun Gallery. “The artwork we curate will be diverse,” according to Cherokee Street Gallery’s Gallerist, Lisa Simani, “It is the gallery's intent to keep humanity's use of symbols to communicate our relationship with nature as a uniting thread throughout our programing.”
Cherokee Street Gallery will launch with an exhibition from the gallery’s founder Benjamin Lowder on Friday, June 29th, from 6:00 - 10:00 pm. This exhibition will be a continuation of Lowder’s “Myth, Math & Magic” series of artwork that consists of remixed cultural artifacts. Patti Astor says of Lowder’s work, “...great art shares a secret but reveals its existence. Each of Benjamin Lowder's pieces not only invite us to share the adventure they hold within, they also inspire us to imagine our own.”
