Art Journaling 101: Altered Books
Saturday, October 14, 10 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

Art Journaling 101: Altered Books offers a taste of the beautiful world of mixed media and art journaling through the upcycling of discarded books. Fostering the expression of feeling and ideas through art has been instructor Caryn Patterson’s life work, both in and out of the classroom. Using both found and bought materials, artists will come away from Art Journaling 101 with the beginnings of an altered book and hopefully some inspiration to continue the project on their own.

Bellwether Gallery of St. Louis Artists

Wallace Herndon Smith Paintings

December 1, 2017 - February 10, 2018

Born in St. Louis in 1901, Wallace Herndon Smith was a traditional painter who absorbed the visual language of artists like Pierre Bonnard, Henri Matisse and Edward Hopper. In the late 1930s, his work gained attention from important American artists like Edward Hopper, Walt Kuhn and Peggy Bacon. He traveled extensively to Europe, Mexico and America’s East Coast, and had a summer residence and studio in Harbor Springs, Michigan, subjects which are found in several works in the exhibit. His works have been exhibited widely including in New York at the Museum of Modern Art, in Philadelphia, St. Louis, and many other cities. The exhibition is organized by the Sheldon Art Galleries and is drawn from the collection of the Bellwether Foundation.
