Torch at Pistol: One-man Surrealist show

The hardest-working man in St. Louis Surrealism - Andrew Torch - has a one-man show of recent work coming up at the PSTL Gallery @ Pace.

Please join Andy for the opening reception Friday, April 10, 6 - 9 p.m. The PSTL Gallery is now located by the Contemporary and the Pulitzer (next block), 3842 Washington Blvd.

I am marking the calendar and aim to bring my child, an avowed fan of Surrealism, though she doesn't know it by that name. I believe her closest approximate term is "Scribble Scrabble".

Andy's news belongs on the Poetry Scores blog because he is a faithful contributor to our Art Invitationals. This is all the more admirable because he works at a glacial pace (by his own account), and our shows tends to be more "friend"raiser than "fund"raiser.

Psst, Andy, don't forget to pick a phrase from The Sydney Highrise Variations and start making your painting for this year's Art Invitational. November is right around the corner for a glacially paced Surrealist painter.

Andy also is one of the nicest people one will ever meet, further proof that talent and edgy artistic interests does not mean you get to behave like an egocentric jackass.
