Invest in the next generation of St. Louis artists

Your gift to Art Saint Louis is generative.

Today, the Saint Louis art scene continues to evolve and grow, with numerous art organizations and galleries. Still, artists find themselves challenged with maintaining a career and thriving and to qualify nationally as a cultural leader, our city must support the development of local talent and art making. A thriving arts scene is one where art is not only celebrated via organizations that spotlight national and international talent, but also one where art is locally made. Art Saint Louis works to balance our region’s import/export positioning. We champion the artists who live and work in our community, and who, through their ongoing creative activity, are steadily earning a reputation for the community itself as a generative arts hub, on par with any major metropolitan capital. 

In addition to ASL’s hub as the go-to space for month-long juried exhibitions of local visual artists and our gathering space for work, community spaces, quiet reading and viewing and gathering space within our gallery and Catalyst Coffee Bar at 1223 Pine Street, in the next two years ASL will develop and work towards the development of the following to provide a vital ecosystem for visual artists and our community with a focus on centralization, through expansion of our Gallery Guide, Collectors’ Conversations, and deepening the opportunities for artists and collectors to engage in one welcoming community space.

Contributions to Art Saint Louis are your investment in ensuring that Art Saint Louis continues to exhibit and champion the artists who live and work in our community, and who, through their ongoing creative activity, are steadily earning a reputation for the community itself as a generative arts hub, on par with any major metropolitan center. Our continued and growing efforts to centralize the awareness and access to the vital visual art being brought to life and exhibited in St. Louis helps to make sure you don’t miss those life-altering experiences in St. Louis, whether you are an artist, a collector, an admirer, an advocate, looking to move to St. Louis or visiting. Your investment makes you a vital part of this vital community and our work.


We fulfill our mission by creating and presenting original exhibitions, educational programming as well as engagement and support services aimed at cultivating and celebrating the art of our region. Our efforts connect and benefit artists and the audiences their work impacts by helping artists achieve professional success while deepening our community’s understanding and enjoyment of contemporary visual art.

Art Saint Louis presents exhibitions year-round in our gallery/café hybrid in the historic Park Pacific building at 1223 Pine Street in the heart of downtown St. Louis. Every exhibit is free and open to the public. Art Saint Louis Juried Exhibitions showcase new works by visual artists aged 18 and older residing within a 200-mile radius of St. Louis.

Your gift helps to ensure free and accessible visual art programming.

Art Saint Louis is a registered not-for-profit organization with the State of Missouri and has Federal 501(c)(3) status
