Serendipity Gallery Celebrates 2 Years In Delmar Loop
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful artists, patrons, friends, family, and fellow small business owners fro another wonderful year.
It doesn’t seem possible, but on September 21 we will celebrate our 2nd year in The Delmar Loop! We look forward – with longing – to the completion of the Loop Trolley construction and the continued growth of east end of The Delmar Loop.
We have a lot of wonderful plans for the next year – kicking off with anniversary celebrations and a lot of wonderful holiday surprises including special events.
Please join us for one of our monthly artist events or just stop in to see what’s new.
Thank you again for your support
Rose, Lisa Anne, Meredith, Kish, and Jon
The Loop Trolley construction progressed to the East end of The Delmar Loop last week. Construction is expected to continue for the next 3 weeks.
Although street parking is limited, there are PLENTY OF FREE PARKING spots behind The Pageant!
We have two amazing new artists this month:
First up, Austin jeweler Julie Konvicka. Julie’s nature inspired sterling pieces feature folded metal techniques and whimsical designs. Below is a sneak peak!

Ted creates computer generated compositions of exceptional beauty – with poetic titles that reflect the emotions of each piece. Ted wil be happy to talk about the multi-layered process behind his digital imagery, including these great pieces:

We look forward to seeing you soon!
Summer has definitely arrived! Grass is green, gardens are growing, outdoor barbeques are in full swing, the humidity and The Loop Trolley are coming!
This month we are excited to introduce new work by a few of our favorite artists:
First up, new pieces in Zach Smithey’s “Materialization of Sound Series.” The flow and colors are inviting and energizing – ready to brighten up any home or office!

Next, Sharon Spillar shared a variety of her eye catching work. We love the mix of sizes and how the bold colors, designs and series play off of one another.

If you haven’t been to The Delmar Loop in a few weeks, you need to stop by and enjoy the entrants in the 7th Annual Mannequins On The Loop, sponsored by Figure8Designs!
Serendipity Gallery staff went all out this year – creating an outfit made of recycled bubble wrap and yellow cellophane! We call her “Miss PossibiBeelity” and hope you enjoy the messages on her lightbulb bees! The entrants this year are really wonderful – as you can see from the sample below. Mannequins will be on display at designated locations along Delmar Boulevard through June 7th.
We hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend!

April showers bring……… lots of fun things to enjoy in The Delmar Loop.
On Saturday, April 4 our own Zack Smithey will wind down his Easter Art Hunt by hiding 300 pieces of free art throughout The Delmar Loop. Zack is an amazing St. Louis artist with a social purpose – he wants to make art available to everyone and bring St. Louis together, so he dreamed up and self-funded a 7 day, 1000 piece of art give away. His work ranges from Mark Twains, Lincolns, and Baseball Players to abstracts forming the Materialization of Sound Series. Look for clues that might lead you to Serendipity Gallery! Stop by Cicero’s from 4 to 6 to get your found artwork signed and meet Zack.
