It doesn’t seem possible, but we are about to celebrate our FIRST ANNIVERSARY in The Loop! We are VERY excited to be here and are enjoying every moment. The east end of The Loop is coming alive with new shops and activities, so if you haven’t stopped by yet, we encourage to you to “walk this way”.
We hope you’ll stop by on Saturday, September 27 from 4 to 7 pm as we celebrate our anniversary with beverages and nibbles. Owner/artist Rose Hagan will be here showcasing some of her new sculptural works. This is a great opportunity to pre-view the works of some of our new artists or enjoy some new work by a few old favorites including jeweler Vanessa Gade, photographer Neil Brown, and, of course, our beloved Artomat®, Artie.
Serendipity has a lot of fun events planned through the end of the year, so keep checking our Events page for the latest updates.
Thanks to everyone who made this incredible year possible – we look forward to seeing you soon!

With the lazy days of summer drawing to a close, now is a great time to start thinking about redecorating or adding a pop of art to your home or office (or dorm room).
In the last few weeks we’ve found new homes for some amazing art work by Zack Smithey, Mark Witzling, and Tim Nummela. We have a lot of new work in the gallery and, as we approach our 1st ANNIVERSARY, we look forward to finding homes for more pieces by some fabulous artists.
Enjoy a stroll in the Delmar Loop and stop in to say “Hello” – we may have the perfect piece you’ve been looking for.

I really can’t believe that July is almost here! We’ve had a great summer so far, but now it is time for the gallery staff to indulge in a little rest and recreation of our own.
The gallery will be closed from July 1 thru July 18. We will reopen on Saturday, July 19th at 11 am.
Enjoy your summer holiday and be prepared for some great new artwork and a tanned and relaxed staff when we return on July 19th!
Have a great July 4th holiday everyone.

Memorial Day typically marks the end of school and the beginning of summer – unless you had a long snow filled winter! I feel the pain of every little kid who has to go back to school next week – it’s the worst!
But the weekend is here and the Delmar Loop is kicking off summer in high style:
- Mannequins on the Loop are installed in 9 locations along Delmar, including the gorgeous and over the top gold lady installed in front of Serendipity Gallery, courtesy of local artist Zack Smithey;
- The Moonrise Hotel/Eclipse are continuing the Stl250 celebration with an event Saturday evening featuring 6 themed cocktail rooms;
- The Tivoli Theatre is celebrating it’s 90th anniversary with a showing of the classic “Meet Me in St. Louis” on Sunday; and
- Serendipity Gallery welcomes new artist Barb Rand and her spectacular jewelry pieces.
Memorial Day is also a day to remember our fallen soldiers and loved ones who aren’t with us any more. We send our thanks and love out to the families of fallen soldiers and remember our own family members and friends who aren’t here to share the backyard barbeques with us this year.
Enjoy and be safe!

Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all you Mom’s out there! I’m sending love out to my 91 year old grandmother Virginia, who instilled a love of art in us by making art galleries and art projects part of our annual summer adventures. She was always painting, doing needle work, or some other art project. I have one of her watercolors hanging in my office. Big Hug and Kiss Grandma! To Mom – I miss you!
We have a lot of fun planned for this summer. Next up is the installation of Mannequins on the Loop, which takes place next Saturday, May 17. The event, in its 6th season, is sponsored by Figure8Designs. Local artists and design teams will be decorating half/full body mannequins for outdoor display – following a community theme. All the mannequins should be in place at various locations throughout the Loop by 6 pm that evening.
Serendipity Gallery is very excited to have Zack Smithey designing our mannequin, which will be installed in front of the gallery. We look forward to sharing his art with everyone.
We are also excited to welcome some new artists to the gallery for the Spring/Summer season including Tricia Coyle, Richard Gordon, Mary Nasser, Naomi Silver and Mark Witzling.
Please join us for a beverage on Saturday, May 17 from 6 to 8:30 to celebrate the installation of Zack’s mannequin and to meet Zack and a few of our new artists.
Until then, have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!
