St. Louis Artist Ted Collier to Be Featured at the Duane Reed Gallery

December 01, 2014

Local artist Ted Collier will be featuring his artwork Fri., December 19 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the Duane Reed Gallery in the Central West End.

This art show is free and open to the public. While viewing Collier’s painting, attendees will be able to purchase Collier’s work and will also be treated to complimentary Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria and adult beverages. All are welcome to come out and enjoy. Collier’s work is slated to remain in the gallery for a while as well.

The art show will feature all new original works by the acclaimed mixed media artist. Collier is known for his creative and vibrant use of color in his art.

Collier is an artist living and working in St. Louis. His painting is influenced by his passion for the outdoors, especially rivers and streams during fishing trips in remote areas of the country. He uses a strong element of “process” to develop his paintings and vision. Beginning with an initial structure, he discovers patterns, shapes, and movement that create stunning imagery through the process.

Collier, who works mostly in acrylics, has been successful at selling his work in the St. Louis market and nationwide and has been featured in local venues. Ted is the co-owner of Katie’s Pizza & Pasta Osteria and has been showing and selling his work for four years through unconventional pop-up shows throughout the city. Duane Reed is the first gallery setting that Collier has agreed to show. For more information, please call (314) 942-6555.
