Art Fair at Queeny Park
The Greater St. Louis Art Association (GSLAA) presents the semi-annual Art Fair at Queeny Park, Sept. 2 through 4 at the indoor, air-conditioned Greensfelder Recreation Center in Queeny Park, 550 Weidman Rd, Ballwin, Mo. Hours are 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
GSLAA has been hosting art fairs at Queeny Park for nearly 35 years. The fall and spring art fairs are two of the most reputable, longest-running juried art fairs in the bi-state region and present a rare opportunity for the public to see and purchase original works of fine art and fine craft directly from the artists who create them.
Visitors can expect approximately 130 juried artists from around the St. Louis region and the United States, representing the following media: ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, jewelry, printmaking, digital art, glass, mixed media, fiber, sculpture, wood and more. The show will be judged by a nationally renowned panel, including 2-D judge Azhad Bogosian, adjunct professor of drawing & painting at Webster University, and 3-D judge Jane Sauer, artist and owner of the Jane Sauer Gallery in Santa Fe, NM.
In addition to the wide variety of fine art and fine crafts, guests are treated to live music from well-known local musicians; wine tastings from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday and 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday; three $100 drawings (noon and 3 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday) for “art dollars” that can be spent at any artist’s booth; an interactive Art Discovery Adventure for children from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday; an open “Art Wall” for public expression; and refreshments available for purchase.
Admission is $5 at the door and free to those 18 and under. Parking is free. Tickets are valid for all three days of the Art Fair at Queeny Park.
Dollar-off coupons are available from the GSLAA website, www.gslaa.org. Guests will have the opportunity to sign the guest book to receive future announcements and discount coupons.
