Artist, Art Professional, Art Student, Art Supporter
If an artist/art student, my primary medium or mixed media is:
Painting, Photography, Assemblage
I dream too much. If there is such a thing. I smile at strangers and love to hear their stories. I'm passionate. About everything.
I spend my days dreaming up ideas that I hope help others enjoy the beauty of life. I'm an emotionally-driven curator with an affinity and deep connection to the things that motivate memories, feelings and nostalgia.
I have an angel for a son and an amazing bearded fiance. Both of which fuel my intense desire to create a world that is in constant reverie. With a backdrop of river and woodland scenery, I exist to nurture and develop a unique life; for myself, my family and for my clients.
I began my career as a photographer working for my high school newspaper, later moving on to an internship with the late Sonny Azzara, one of St. Louis' renowned photographers. In a darkroom in the Midwest when I was 15, Sonny taught me the fundamentals of catching light and moments.
Soon after, I received a Design Diploma from The Art Institute so that I could incorporate my art and illustration into my love for imagery and hauntingly hopeful designs. All of my products are either handmade or 100% Midwest & USA-made by eco-friendly amazing companies that I am proud to be partnered with.
My name is Matt Menietti, the Marketing/Development Coordinator at America SCORES St. Louis.
We’re hosting an art show and fundraiser on March 20, 2010, and would like for you to submit one or more pieces to our event. I’ve included some information below. Please contact me if you have any questions about the project. Thanks in advance!
The Inspired Art Project enlists local artists to create and submit original works, inspired by original poetry written by students participating in America SCORES St. Louis. Started by another SCORES affiliate in the Bay Area, the Inspired Art Project is an exciting national model for community collaboration.
On, March 20, 2010, the selected artwork will be collected and displayed at our annual Inspired Art Show. Proceeds from the event will support America SCORES St. Louis, a unique, comprehensive, youth development program which uses the tools of poetry, soccer, creative expression and service-learning to equip and inspire urban youth to lead healthy lifestyles, become engaged students, and grow into leaders for their schools and communities.
Interested artists need to register ASAP in order to submit their work to the event. Artists may choose to collect 25% of the final auction price for their work, or can donate all or a portion of the commission back to America SCORES St. Louis. Other artist benefits include:
• Free admission to the event (includes two complimentary drinks)
• Free guest tickets (up to 3) to the event
