The St. Louis Artists’ Guild is pleased to announce that Patrick Murphy of Channel 9 will be our special Master of Ceremonies for this year’s Bells and Bowls.

KETC Vice President of Production Patrick Murphy has been part of the St. Louis broadcast community for more than 30 years—airing on such radio stations as KWMU, KSLQ, KYKY, KGLD and KADI. Widely known as the “voice” of Channel 9 since 1981, Patrick has a rich background as a freelance on-camera and voice talent, as well as an independent producer.

Patrick’s most notable KETC productions include The Katy: Stories of the Trail, American Tower, Because of You, Monumental Reflections and five seasons of Living St. Louis. He has been honored for his outstanding work in television with four Emmys, two Auroras, numerous Tellys and is an honorary member of St. Louis chapter American Institute of Architects.

After earning his B.A. from Washington University, Patrick spent a semester abroad at the University of Tuebingen in Germany. He then went on to earn his M.A. from Webster University where he worked as an adjunct professor of media. And for the past 10 years, he has served as emcee and moderator of the Maryville St. Louis Speakers’ Series at Powell Hall.

About Bells and Bowls Guest of Honor Cynthia Berg: Cynthia Berg joined the St. Louis Artists' Guild when it was in Webster Groves around 1980. She was thrilled to be juried into the Art Section in December 1988. After serving on the Juying Committee for two terms, she went on to serve as Chairman of the Art Section. When the Guild moved to Oak Knoll Park, she chaired the committee to choose flooring, lighting, and seating. She also chaired the committee to choose a caterer to partner with, wisely choosing Catering St. Louis, who has been a wonderful partner to the Guild. In 1997, she organized the committee to produce the cookbook COLOR ME COOKING to benefit the Guild. "The classes I have taken and friends I have made at the Guild have enriched my life and encouraged my career in art," says Berg.
