For those of you who don't know, ArtDimensions is a non-profit group of artisans with a mission to increase awareness and love of art in the St. Louis area, and beyond. By happy chance, Mari and I stumbled upon this group of impossibly talented artists and immediately made it a quest to join their ranks to soak up all of the art knowledge we have.
We can attest that their sentiments are not at all stuffy, as they openly accepted iram-inal designs as their first jewelry design artisans in the group, a bestowment of which we are so proud. The group is full of the young and the young-at-heart, and everyone consistently carries a hip, happening, and supportive vibe.
A few months ago, my sister, Mari, approached ArtDimensions to ask if iram-inal could be the Featured 3-D Artists for the month of November in their striking 3rd Floor Gallery; when they said yes, my sis gladly took up the challenge.
Although the gallery is like a second home to Mari, being in Atlanta, I had not yet had the opportunity to visit the site - located in the heart of cosmopolitan downtown St. Louis on Washington Avenue - and took the last day of my last visit to St. Louis to do so.
I have to say that the gallery is simply striking... big, bold, with clean lines, the gallery is more than I ever anticipated, and should be the crowning glory of the group.
Mari's great work with the group also allowed us to set up in the Flax Gallery, a portion of the ArtDimensions Gallery specifically dedicated to local women artists. In addition to having our work sold in the Gallery Gift Shop, you can also find our work in future exhibits in the Flax Gallery, as well.
Audaz opened to a warm group of art-seekers on November 14th. I never could have anticipated the beautiful job my sister did in completing the space. The installation was everything that encompassed the iram-inal identity - beautiful, Afro-Cuban inspired pieces that were Audaz, audacious and statement-making in every way.
Overall, it was a fantastic event, and we are so proud to be affiliated with such a talented group of artists and for having such a successful first exhibit! You can visit the ArtDimensions 3rd Floor Gallery Th - Sun, 12:00 Noon-4:00pm at 1214 Washington Avenue, 3rd Floor (enter through Mossa Center), St. Louis, MO 63103.
