PAGE THIRTY-TWO ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12,1963 Two New Galleries Alton Has Revival in Art B.v .TOUN STETSON Tplcgrnph Staff Writer A national trend of increased interest in the work of livinR artists serms renewed in Alton this year with the opening of two art galleries. Proprietors of both the Alton Gallery, 3650 Washington Ave., and the Studio 300. at 300 W. Fourth St.. indie-ate ait interest by the cencral public is on the upswing. Bob Carter, who with his wife operates the jrallory on Washington Avenue, is an art teacher at Bethalto High School. More Heerptivo Commenting on the increased arl interest Carter s;iid. "I have found the people of this area more receptive to contemporary art work than I first expected. Since the gallery opened in March the operators have exhibited the work of more than 30 artists from Alton, Wood River, Godfrey and even a Cahokia artist, Carter said. "We find that 50 per cent of the people who come into the gallery, which also sells art supplies, come back repeatedly to view exhibits and browse," he added. More Importance Mrs. Carter, who shares her husbands enthusiasm, says she thinks the arts while gaining more importance throughout the nation are also becoming significantly more appreciated in the Midwest. "The art center, though it originates in New York, seems to be spreading its influence more strongly westward to central United States," she said. Liaison Service Li addition to providing a place for artists to exhibit, the Carters also operate as a liaison service between artist and prospective buyer. Asked what he feels is causing the much greater interest in living artists work Carter indicated that art education, which today starts in the elementary grades, is the primary cause.
