Honor Awards 2015 features 56 artworks by ten St. Louis regional artists from Missouri and Illinois. The artworks include ceramics, drawings, mixed media, paintings, and photography.

The exhibit is presented June 6-July 23, 2015. A free opening reception is held Saturday, June 6, 6-8 p.m. Gallery hours are Monday 7 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday 7 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Closed Sundays & holidays. Closed Fourth of July holiday & weekend: July 3-4.

Serving as Curator of this exhibit was artist Margaret Keller, Professor Art, St. Louis Community College Meramec, St. Louis, MO. Keller is an internationally exhibited artist and art critic whose reviews and writings have been published in Art in America, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, New Art Examiner, and Review.


Our Honor Awards exhibition is an annual exhibit presented to give our Award of Excellence-winning artists from the previous year's juried exhibitions an additional opportunity to show their newest or recent works and have them curated into a special ten-artist exhibition in the ASL Gallery.

Although this is a curated exhibit, it is still highly competitive. For this exhibit, 26 St. Louis regional artists were eligible to submit works for curating and consideration for this show—those 26 artists were those who earned Awards of Excellence in our 2014 juried exhibits here at Art Saint Louis. Our Exhibit Curator, Margaret Keller, considered over 200 artworks in all media by those 26 artists, and her main task or role was to select only ten artists and the artworks to be exhibited for the final show.


The ten featured artists in Honor Awards 2015 are:

Lon Brauer, Granite City, IL
Jo Jasper Dean, Chesterfield, MO 
Christa Gearhart Denney, University City, MO
Naxin Fan, Fenton, MO

Mark A. Fisher, St. Charles, MO

Damon Gaspar, St. Louis, MO 
Beth Goyer, Des Peres, MO
Kerry Hirth, Columbia, MO
Russ Rosener, St. Louis, MO

David M. Yates, Edwardsville, IL
