Foundry Art Centre Opens Whimsical Art Exhibit at Lambert-St. Louis
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), October 31, 2013 - The Foundry Art Centre and Lambert-St. Louis International Airport have opened their first joint exhibition - Rat Race, an exhibition of whimsical artwork - open now through February 23, 2014 at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport's Meeting Place Gallery (located in Terminal 1 Bag Claim Level adjacent to the Concourse C exit.)
In today's fast paced world of hustle and bustle, it's easy to get caught up in the serious and mundane tasks of life. Living in a modern society, we often focus on the task at hand, leaving little time in our day for the lighter side of things. This whimsical exhibition invites visitors passing through the Airport to pause for a moment and forget about the "rat race."
This exhibition of recent works draws from the creativity of fifteen artists who have participated in juried exhibitions offered by the Foundry Art Centre in the past three years. The artists capture in these three dimensional works, the essence of playfulness and the delight of the unexpected.
From the gentle composure of Wyn Flo's Alice, to the abstracted beauty of Martin Linson's Bronze Garden, the artwork in this gallery highlights the mediums of clay, paper, fiber, glass and metal.
The featured regional artists are Lisa Becker, J. Penney Burton, Elizabeth Conn, Claire Frandsen, M.J. Goerke, Steve Jones, Laura Lebeda, Martin Linson, Laura Lloyd, Pat Owoc, Snail Scott and Betty Shew. Wyn Flo, Julie VonDerVellen and Dennis Yuen represent states outside of the greater St. Louis region.
The exhibition was curated by Angela Fowle, Executive Director of the Foundry Art Centre, located at 520 North Main Center, in the Frenchtown district of Historic St. Charles.
Rat Race is sponsored by the Regional Arts Commission and the Greater Saint Charles Convention & Visitors Bureau. For more information, call 636-255-0270.

BelasArtes to Host Exhibit by Sergio Hernandez, One of Mexico's Top Contemporary Artists
CLAYTON, MO, (SLFP.com), October 14, 2013 - BelasArtes is hosting one of Mexico's top contemporary artists, Sergio Hernandez, in "Tightrope Walker of the Night" (Funámbulo de la Noche). This artwork addresses the relationship of the night with the honorific, the sensuality, the unconscious and death.
The exhibit will continue to be on display until December 20. BelasArtes Gallery is located at 1854 Russell Blvd. St. Louis MO 63104.
In "Tightrope Walker of the Night," guests will travel alongside Hernandez's dream world as he depicts the fun, light-hearted nature of the circus, while exploring the depths of life and death. Enjoy Hernandez's portrayal of emotional depth while being carried away by the musical talents of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra's first violinist Manuel Ramos, who will be accompanied by other fellow musicians.
This culturally rich travelling exhibit was made possible with the help of the Mexican Department of Foreign Relations, the Mexican Consulate in Kansas City and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra.
