Saint Louis, MO: July 11, 2008 -- Darkest Dreams a Lighted Way Art Show showcasing local and national artists, including Celebrity Artist Michael Bell have found a home for their first annual art show at Fort Condo – Compound for the Arts in St. Louis.
The all media art show features works by 18 artists from Missouri, Illinois, California, North Carolina, Texas, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Florida, Michigan, and Washington DC. Each artist uses their particular medium to portray abuse in any form, from the physical, emotional, mental, and sexual, to include topics of neglect and mental anguish.

Artist and Metro East resident Aunia Kahn, creator and curator of the show, describes the intense need for awareness of the difficult subject matter as an insight into the atypical release artists face as they express some of their deepest motivations, feelings and their own personal contact with the subject matter portrayed through their work.
