In mid-October there were back-to-back gallery openings on McPherson. On October 17, Susan Barrett opened Barrett Barrera Projects at 4739 McPherson, the former location of Arlene Lilie, and auction house Selkirk. I’ll be posting more about the space and the exhibition, Saint-Louis to St. Louis: the City on the River meets River City, along with news about Barrett’s other new gallery and event space later this week.
In other CWE gallery news Carolyn Miles is moving Atrium Gallery, which has been at 4814 Washington for the past 6 years, to the Dorchester, 665 S. Skinker. (William Shearburn’s gallery is located in the same building.) The inaugural exhibition in the new space, featuring work by New York artist Leslie Dill, opens Friday, November 8, 6 to 8 p.m.
