I was thrilled to see Louisiana, MO Pike County artist, Josh Cote, exhibiting at the Shaw Art Fair. I bought one of his crows from the farmhouse in Pike County. Check out the super cool building that I had listed which he purchased: HERE
Alicia LaChance was featured in the book, New American Artist. Congratulations! One of her important pieced pictured in the book is currently at The Houska Gallery in the CWE. Click HERE to see the painting that I bought!
Wall Ball was last night and as always it was a huge success and a fun party. This is the first year that I was not the highest bidder on a piece of art. I bid on some art, though really just to drive up the prices. I have too much art already.
The other day I took these photos of a sculpture by Ruth Schweiss that sits outside of a Bernoudy-designed home. This work of reminds me of the Carl Milles sculptures in the Meeting of the Waters near Union Station.
A couple Fridays ago I ventured down to Cherokee Street for Art Dimensions which takes place the first Friday of each month. Very cool! Bands, art, performances and hipsters! This model was sitting for some artist.
Local....though internationally aclaimed artist, Gary Passanise, will be having an open of his new show this Friday, October 19th from 5-9 PM. The Opening is at Bruno David Gallery, 3721 Washinton Ave in Grand Center. I will be there!
Famed Photographer, Wesley Law, came over to my house last week to take a night picture of my new house. Dramatic and cool! Check out his fashion spread in the September 14th Ladue News. The pictures were taken at my Bernoudy listing in Town and Country that is going to be the Ladue News Decorator's Showcase in early October.
A highlight of the Clayton Art Fair was seeing the work of Robert Longyear. Robert shares a studio with Alicia LaChance in Maplewood. You can see how they influence each other. I need to get all of my artwork hung in my new home and then see if I have a space for one of Robert's pieces.
I was at a fun gathering in Ladue celebrating my Aunt Bunny's new book. Check out the blog from a few days ago for more about her book. I love this piece of artwork in the gracious hostesses' screened porch. The lightbulbs changed patterns.
Also look at her Bernoudy-designed patio and "martini" pool. The house is not a Bernoudy, though she hired him to do some of the outdoor space.
Last night I attended a special reception at the Trova Project for the designers selected for the Ladue News Decorators Showcase. The Showcase will be held at my Bernoudy listing out in Town and Country this October. I am excited to see what the designers do to this fabulous home!
