THIS EVENING (Wed., July 16): Opening Reception for Sylvester Jacobs Photography Exhibit at ONSLRG Gallery
Please join us this evening (Wednesday, July 16) for the opening of our latest exhibit at the Old North St. Louis Restoration Group Gallery (adjacent to the ONSLRG office), 2700 N. 14th Street. The exhibit entitled ”We Are of the Same Essence” features the photography of Sylvester Jacobs. Sylvester has been capturing images of the people of the community and various neighborhood events that reflect the character and spirit of Old North for many years now. This new exhibit will include just a sample of Sylvester’s collection.
The opening of the exhibit coincides with the latest installment of the “So Reel” film & discussion series, a collaboration between Old North St. Louis Restoration Group and YWCA of Greater St. Louis. This month’s topic is “Healing Racism Through the Arts.” That program will start with a brief video at 6 p.m., which will be followed by a discussion.
A reception from 7:30-9 p.m. will follow the program. The program is free and open to the public. All are welcome, including residents of Old North and friends of the community, and anyone interested in the topic and / or just curious about the exhibit. Sylvester Jacobs will be present to share his thoughts about the exhibit and looks forward to the chance to engage in conversation about his work and the vibrant and diverse community reflected in his exhibit.
The program is generously supported by Regional Arts Commission, Arts & Education Council, and Missouri Humanities Council.
