The Artists’ First-Ever Art Show Exhibition Runs January 22 – February 27, 2016

ST. LOUIS – Brett Prywitch, M.D.’s job for the past 20 years as a Radiologist is to look inside the human body, to observe, study, analyze and find evidence of abnormalities, diseases or compromised organs, tissue and bones. But Dr. Brett Prywitch sees much more than just those medical conditions when he reviews x-rays, CT scans or MRIs. He also observes the beauty in the human form, and he can envision creative ways to convey his artistic inspiration.

Brett PrywitchFor several years, Brett Prywitch has taken that artistic inspiration and turns radiological images into a new art form by utilizing medical imagery such as x-rays, CT and MRI scans.
Prywitch explains his unique creative perspective, noting, “The ability to peer inside a human body without the laying of hands is truly a miracle of medical science. I create imagery utilizing medical images such as computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and plain X-rays.”

Brett’s collection of radiologically-inspired works of art are featured within the exhibition “Clearly Human II”, which is currently on display at the St. Louis Artists’ Guild Gallery, located in Clayton at the corner of Jackson and Forsythe (in the old Famous-Barr building) through February 27, 2016. An Artists Reception will take place at the St. Louis Artists Guild on Saturday evening, January 30 from 6:00 until 9:00 pm, and is open to the public.

Although Prywitch’s work has been displayed in several professional settings, this is the first time Brett’s art has been accepted into a highly regarded and professional juried art show. Encouraged by his acceptance into the “Clearly Human II” Show, Brett is in the process of applying to several other regional art shows and festivals.
