Sean Frye will show his work, “Abstract Chaos,” Sept. 5-Oct. 20 at St. Louis Community College-Wildwood’s Gallery of Contemporary Art.
The exhibit includes 16 digital and mixed media works of art.
The community is invited to view the exhibit and meet Frye at a reception held in his honor 4-6 p.m. Sept. 20. The Gallery of Contemporary Art is located on the third floor of STLCC-Wildwood, 2645 Generations Drive. Gallery hours are 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Thursday, and 7 a.m.-4 p.m. Friday.
According to Frye, the exhibit showcases his versatility as an artist.
“My motto is, ‘Embrace the new,’” he said. “While each piece in this exhibit is unique, the works are connected by their colors and the use of abstract design.”
In addition to working as an artist, Frye has taught studio art classes at the college level for 17 years. He has been an elementary art teacher and has led afterschool art programs for kids.
“As an instructor, I love teaching students how to find their voice through art – just as my instructors did for me,” he said. “When I began this journey, I never thought I would become a teacher, but life’s funny. Sometimes life surprises you when you least expect it.”
Frye holds an associate degree from STLCC, a bachelor’s degree in fine arts from Webster University and two master’s degrees in fine arts from Fontbonne University – one in painting and the other in sculpture.
