Business Description

In 2003 the Philip Slein Gallery was opened on Washington Avenue in downtown St. Louis by co-owners Philip Slein and Tom Bussmann who share a wide range of interests centering on painting, and are committed to showing the best work regardless of style. In 2008 Bridget Melloy joined the staff, and in 2011 Phil and Tom developed a partnership with the venerable art dealer Jim Schmidt of Schmidt Contemporary Art. The gallery moved to its current Central West End location in 2012.
