Solo Exhibition - Opening April 6th, 7-10pm
Featuring the art of
Jeffrey Richter
St. Clair, Mo
While I have been interested in art for as long as I can remember, I did not have a chance to formally begin developing my talent until my junior year of high school. It was in my first art class that I gained experience with drawing and painting mediums.

I began attending East Central College in Union, Missouri, in the fall of 1999. While there I was able to expand my skills through a wide variety of classes, including drawing, painting, printmaking, figure drawing, design, and business of art. I worked for East Central College's student newspaper, the Cornerstone, as the graphic arts editor. I drew all the covers of the paper and illustrated cartoons and pictures for headlines.

After leaving college I have had an assortment of different opportunities to use my abilities. I worked for St Clair Monument designing and lettering headstones which gave me a chance to learn to use my art as a tool in the workforce. I later was accepted for an internship to study sculpture in Rutland, Vermont, at the Carving Studio and Sculpture Center. During this time I kept creating and experimenting with my own art, driven by new life experiences, a new environment, and the excitement of spontaneity. I also worked for The Chaffee Center for the Visual Arts in Rutland, Vermont, as a drawing and painting instructor for two years before returning to Missouri in 2006.

Since moving back from Vermont to St. Clair, Missouri, a lot has changed in my personal life along with my professional life. I am married and have two children, a girl and a boy. My daughter is almost three years old and my son is four months old. My daughter stays up late with me when I work on my art and draws her own pictures too!

I work as a graphic designer eight hours a day and come home work at night to work on my own ideas. My full-time job is with a company called Paramount Apparel, which designs clothing for many different companies all over America. My artwork has grown and changed as well; through the internet, as well as art shows and other resources, I am able to reach a larger audience by selling my original works and signed prints all around the world. Currently, in my work, I am concentrating on the human form and how it relates to machinery in being created, given a job, wearing out, and seizing.

My brain is constantly crowded with ideas and thoughts on what new creations I can do and how I can do them, and I will continue to create until my engine breaks down.
The Artwork of Jeffrey Richter
Rivet is happy to welcome back artist Jeffrey Richter.

Enhancing and changing life to fit specifically in certain situations, his drawings are ideas showing the analogies of real life emotions and situations through renderings of humans blended with machines and animals.

Artist reception will be held on Saturday, April 6th from 7-10pm including an art demonstration. Complimentary beverages and snacks will be provided. Print work will be available for purchase.

Join us again on Sunday, April 7th at 2pm for an artist demonstration and workshop. Jeffrey will discuss drawing technique and figurative drawing techniques of his charcoal work. He will also work with guests one on one to help them with a better understanding of drawing basics and ways to achieve success working with charcoal.
