t’s summer in St. Louis and the Delmar Loop is kicking things off with a 4-day celebration of the Arts with Loop Arts Fest.

 

Piano Street Art celebrating local musicians by G Gamache

We kicked off the fun at the end of May with the installation of 8 pianos located primarily on the Loop Trolley stops (and also at the U City Public Library).  Our own Jon Gamache painted the piano located in front of The Pageant Theatre with images of contemporary St. Louis musicians.  We encourage everyone to take a stroll down the street – and feel free to play a tune.  Many thanks to Jackson Piano for installing these pianos as part of the St. Louis Make Music Day celebrations.

 

LOOP ARTS FEST 2017 officially kicks off

Wednesday, June 21, with International Make Music Day.  Musicians will be performing throughout the day, inside and outside stores and venues throughout The Loop.  We are excited to be hosting harpist Zen Harbison from 3 – 4:30 pm and keyboardist Mike Ray from 6 to 7 pm.  This is a great time to celebrate the rich music tradition and talented St. Louis musicians.  For more information on venues and performances, please visit www.MakeMusicSTL.org.  Many thanks to Kathy Favazza and Nika Leoni at Make Music STL for getting this great event going in St. Louis!

We are having a hard time believing that Thanksgiving is right around the corner!  Where did the summer and fall go?

Our elves are hard at work getting ready for Small Business Saturday (Nov. 26), the traditional day to get out and support local businesses.  We are excited to announce that DeWitt Young, the creative genius behind Obvious Front Capacitor Robots will be in the gallery on November 26, with a selection of his creatures.  DeWitt takes capacitors from computers, TVs, and VCRs and transforms them into quirky bugs, robots and animals like this crazy crew:
