CoMo Art: The Larry Show

If you have a chance to stop by the George Caleb Bingham Gallery in the art building on the corner of Hitt and University, make sure you do so. What I really meant to say is – Plan to stop by and see the Larry Show. It runs until August 25th when they will hold a reception from 4 to 6.

Larry, the star of the show, is a model for the art department. He poses for the students to draw, paint, or sculpt him. When I was in school I had the pleasure of meeting Larry and I sketched him in my drawing class. He is such an interesting man.

I don’t want to show too much, you should experience it yourself.  You’ll get a good glimse into Larry’s life. And a look at some fabulous art work. It is a collection of pieces from several artists.

The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 8am to 5pm. You can call 573.882.3555 if you have any questions. Enjoy!

CoMo Gallery Tour: Perlow-Stevens Gallery

PS: Gallery

The Perlow-Stevens Gallery just relocated from Broadway to their new, larger location at 1025 E. Walnut. Their grand-opening event was on Saturday, February 26th, so I dropped by to see the new space.

Jennifer Perlow greets a guest.

PS: Gallery is owned by Jennifer Perlow and Chris Stevens and first opened in July 2006. The building on Broadway was sold and they had to locate a new space fairly quickly. No corners were cut, however. The space is beautiful and has a wonderful flow, I love the original touches.

They are now in the North Village Arts District, which will be great for Artrageous Fridays and other gallery crawl events.

Chris Stevens chats with some friends.

A crowd quickly formed, enjoying refreshments, browsing the art, and taking in the new space. They feature local artist’s paintings, mixed-media pieces, pottery, glasswork, fiber art, jewelry, and photography.

I always drool over Joel Sager‘s work. Go look at it up-close and you’ll see what I mean! In addition to creating his masterpieces, Joel is also a curator for PS: Gallery.
