Thanks to the great folks at Lulu’s who were very welcoming. I am really happy to have my work shown in St Louis, the most Catholic city in the US. My house-mate and I visited the Cathedral Basilica and were lucky enough to hear the guided tour. The Basilica shouldn’t be missed if you visit St Louis–the mosaic ceiling is singular. A few blocks away is Forest Park–larger than Central Park in New York–which has a museum campus that includes the St Louis Art Museum. On my previous visit I visited the SLAM as well as the St Louis University (SLU) Museum of Art.
Lulu’s is located in the neighborhood of Tower Grove South, a neighborhood full of ethnic restaurants: Italian, Ethiopian, Moroccan, Persian, Thai (2), Chinese, Sushi and Vietnamese (2) as well as a few diners and, of course, Lulu’s which is Vegan. If you visit the area, you might want to check out Dunaway Books a used bookstore just a few blocks from Lulu’s. There are a few bars and other interesting businesses all within a stretch of about 5 or 6 blocks. Of particular note is the grocery store, Jay International Foods.
I am grateful to the artist, Nicole Horton, for the art show which just ended. I have been promised that my art will hang for at least the next 3 months, but unless another show comes along Lauren has suggested that it might be allowed to hang longer. Though, I would prefer to see another show of work as good as the work which preceded my own. This, I believe, would help to maintain the interest of the patrons in this venue as a showcase for local artists.
Please visit Lulu’s and contact me to let me know what you think, or even just to pass on a story or start a conversation. Who can tell where the inspiration for the next piece will come from?
