Frederick J. Brown: The Life of Christ Altarpiece
Exhibition featured in Where St. Louis
Frederick J. Brown: The Life of Christ Altarpiece is highlighted as a top attraction in "January in St. Louis" in the January 1996 issue of Where magazine (St. Louis edition). "Religious painting didn't die with El Greco," notes the magazine, and MOCRA is a "showcase" for contemporary works "which are visually rich, thematically powerful and thoroughly modern."

At MOCRA, Brown's intense colors "function at optimum strength," says RFT
The January 10 - 16, 1996, edition of the Riverfront Times carries a review of Frederick J. Brown: The Life of Christ Altarpiece. Art critic Alexandra Bellos says of the multi-panel work that its "monumental scale, cropping, charged brushwork and the compression and expansion of pictorial space convey the immedicay of emotion that Brown brings to the work."

An "Altarpiece of Thought" on display at MOCRA
Frederick J. Brown: The Life of Christ Altarpiece is reviewed in the December 21, 1995, edition of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Art critic Debra Parr writes that, "Vividly, and with some surprising idiosyncratic twists, Brown sets us thinking too about the history of that story, and its possible meanings and transformations."

Edward Boccia: Eye of the Painter
Artist "expresses himself in paint, poetry and religion"
In the May 19, 1996, edition of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Cultural News Editor Robert Duffy highlights the Edward Boccia exhibitions being held at MOCRA and Cupples House. Duffy notes that Boccia is "an enthusiast for living and the pleasures of the world," yet "struggles with remembrances of where we come from, and of things done and left undone and uncertainties and fears of where we are going."
