Saint Louis University




The Saint Louis University Museum of Art is pleased to host Continuing Tradition: Paintings by Michal Artal. The exhibition will begin with an opening reception at 6 p.m. on Friday, September 9.

In her still life and landscape paintings, Michal Artal seeks to capture the unique beauty of everyday objects and scenes. The work displayed in the Continuing Tradition exhibition combines the interplay of color and light - shadows and reflections, and transforms them into compositions reflective of Artal's interpretation of traditional themes.

The Michal Artal exhibition continues until October 9 at the Saint Louis University Museum of Art.


Michal Artal was born and raised in Israel. She has practiced and taught both psychiatry and psychoanalysis. In 1998, she joined the faculty of psychiatry at Saint Louis University, where she was appointed associate professor and residency program director in psychiatry.

The mother of three, grown children, and now retired, Dr. Artal and her husband, Dr. Raul Artal reside in St. Louis, MO. She continues to explore the beauty and intricacies of still life and landscape as she articulates her vision on canvas.
