Artist Ali Cavanaugh will be in St. Louis to sign copies of her book and to mark the closing of “A Survey of Excellence,” Heartland Art Club’s 2019 invitational exhibition.
”Modern Fresco Paintings” charts Cavanaugh’s boldest explorations yet into illustrating the interior space of thought. With more than one hundred fifty full-color images this gorgeous book is as much of a work of art as any of the original masterpieces within.
At the age of two, artist Ali Cavanaugh survived a bout of spinal meningitis, emerging relatively unscathed except for the near-total loss of her sense of hearing. What might have been a bitter sentence for a child turned out to be a lifelong blessing in disguise, instilling in Cavanaugh a singular sensitivity to the unspoken expressions that spark body language and the feelings that lie just beneath the mask of the human face.
The event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase or bring your copy for Ali to sign.
