If theres a classification that implies newness beyond fresh, raw might be it. Raw is also the name of local artist Kevin McCoys exhibit at Gallery Visio on the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-7922 or www.umsl.edu/~galvisio). A printmaker by training, McCoy is no stranger to mixed media. Raw features work that combines McCoys printmaking techniques with his interest in painting, photography and design. In addition to the work on the walls, McCoy also has hand-printed covers on a limited number of CDs for DJ Needles; these CDs will be available at the free opening reception from 4 to 7 p.m. Thursday, August 28, and Needles will return the favor by spinning live during those three hours. Gallery Visio is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and Raw remains up through September 18.
Mondays-Thursdays. Starts: Aug. 28. Continues through Sept. 18, 2008
