Artists on the Rise
Each year, the Rise Up Festival showcases local St. Louis artists. Take a look at the work from the 2017 Festival.
Once again, our theme is “Artists on the Rise” featuring emerging St. Louis area artists who are new on the art scene and are trying to make a name for themselves. The show will be managed by our friends at Claire De Lune Productions.

Geometry teacher Gregory Booth has been expanding the minds of students at Kirkwood High School for the past 20 years. But during his own high school days, Booth was passionate about a very different career path: art. Despite a decades long detour into his other passion – mathematics – a deep desire to create never left Booth and he recently began sculpting again. Not surprisingly, a mathematical theme began to emerge in these new pieces and he began to share his work with his students as an example of how numbers create shapes which become art. After years of being an admirer and collector of the arts, Booth recently realized his life long dream with a sold-out solo show at SOHA studio and gallery.
