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:

Stop by on Small Business Saturday, meet the artist, and pick up some unique gifts for your friends and family.  Robots start at $15 – an affordable and fun way to support a local business and a local artist.  We will also have door prizes and snacks!  Free parking is available behind The Pageant Theatre.

 

 

 

December is packed with fun things to do in the Delmar Loop.  In fact, all you want for the holidays is in the Delmar Loop.    Visit www.visittheloop.com/holidays2016 for a complete list of Loop-wide events.  Santa and other holiday characters will be popping up on the weekends, starting on Dec. 2 with the annual Tree Lighting at Fitz’s.

Today we are celebrating our 3rd anniversary in St. Louis’ historic Delmar Loop.  We love the vibe of this great street and the entrepreneurial spirit that drives the neighborhood.

We wanted to take a moment to thank our wonderful artists, past and present, for trusting us to showcase their work.  We also want to thank our loyal customers who keep our doors open.  It is a joy to match great art with great people.

We have talented artists, great staff and a wonderful location between the award winning Moonrise Hotel and the Pageant Theatre.  In another few weeks, we will be welcoming Delmar Hall to the neighborhood.  If you haven’t been in yet, stop by and see work by talented local and regional artists including owner Rose Hagan.  We have metered street parking and additional free parking behind The Pageant.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Back to Day 1

 

The summer has flown by.  We are approaching our 3 year anniversary – seems like only yesterday we were picking out hardwood flooring and deciding on artwork!

A lot has changed in east end of The Loop.  We look forward to the addition of Delmar Hall (opening in October) and the apartment complex under construction just to our East.  Loop Trolley construction is entering its final stages and detours are down to a minimum.  Please come explore this end soon – we are in the middle of 3 Pokémon Go stops!

We are very excited to welcome a new artist to the gallery this month.  JB Nearsy has relocated to St. Louis from Metro Illinois.  He works with spray paint and an incredible eye for color.  JB’s work will be on exhibit and for sale in the gallery through the end of November.  We encourage you to stop by soon and enjoy his fresh perspective.

We cannot believe that June is at the halfway point already.  The Delmar Loop is hot.  Trolley construction along Delmar is nearing the end and the East end of The Loop is enjoying the transformation of the old Big Shark Space into Joe Edward’s Delmar Hall and the construction of a 14 story apartment complex on the adjacent lot.

The art scene on The Loop has also been busy.  Over the last few weeks The Loop hosted the 8th annual Mannequins on The Loop.  Talented area artists, including our own Jon Gamache, created wonderful street art.  Thanks to Audrey Jones of Figure 8 Designs for organizing this event.  Congratulations to Tracey Johnson who created the winning mannequin for Avalon Exchange.  The winner can be viewed at University City library.
