RAW:St. Louis is the local extension to the international network under the helm of RAW:Artists. The organization operates in 54 cities across the United States and Australia, and works to provide a platform for artists in the first ten years of their professional development. Locally, RAW is directed by Sarah Faragalla who does a fabulous job putting together St. Louis’ largest, monthly, multi-disciplinary art exhibition.
If you’ve never been, the events feature 20-30 artists working in media ranging from fashion to printmaking. The two-dimensional art is displayed according to artist (who are on hand throughout to talk about their work), while performance-based work (film, music, fashion, dance) runs in succession on a main stage. If you are looking to meet creative people, network, or promote your business/organization, RAW:St. Louis events are excellent places to start. The night that Photo Flood St. Louis exhibited, more than 800 guests were in attendance!
