St. Charles artist turns natural materials into sculptures.
Sculpture artist Adam Long will display pieces he's created during the last six years in Gallery 501 at Art Glass Array, 501 North Kingshighway, St. Charles, MO. The exhibition, called Trees in Motion, runs June 8 to July 6. Long uses bark, sticks and acorns in his sculptures which are built on a frame made of branches and steel. He then applies clay and covers it in natural materials. "I was working on a BA in figure sculpture and at the same time I was also becoming an environmentalist," he said in an earlier story on St. Charles Patch. "I had been collecting bark, sticks and acorns, and one day I started gluing bark to a sculpture as a whim. I decided that's cool and that kick started it all." Read an earlier story on Long here.

City Council approved agreement with Foundry Art Centre on Tuesday.
The St. Charles Foundry Art Centre likely will exhibit a new employee in the next few weeks. The St. Charles City Council voted 8-0 to approve an agreement with the Foundry for a $65,000 grant for a new development and marketing position. The position will handle fundraising, event planning and building foundation support. It is part of a campaign by the organization to combat annual shortfalls of about $60,000 in its $500,000 budget. In late November, several board members from the Foundry Art Centre approached the city asking for help in the form of $75,000 to cover shortfalls, $60,000 to cover utility costs or $55,000 for a development and marketing specialist. City Council members decided in December to help fund the development …

The musician, former television actor and artist will attend the show's opening.
Musician, television star and artist Bobby Goldsboro will bring his hits and his art to Lindenwood University's J. Scheidegger Center for the Arts. Goldsboro will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 19, on the stage of the Bezemes Family Theater in the center. Several of his paintings will be on display in the center's Boyle Family Gallery from Feb. 20 through March 13. Goldsboro will attend the opening reception from 1-5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 20. Goldsboro's musical career began in the 1960s, but being a singer and songwriter wasn't his original plan. "I thought I was going to be in sports. I had no idea I would end up doing this," he said in a phone interview from his home in Florida. When Goldsboro was 10 years old, a neighbor got a ukulele …

George Denninger has carefully crafted his studio and home in St. Charles.
He carves wood. He makes prints. He fashions furniture. He designs buildings. He teaches dance. It’s tempting to say that George Denninger wears many hats. But Denninger isn’t given to clichés, and as he stands proudly surrounded by the images, sculptures and even a piano that were created by his hand, the 64 year old sees it a little differently. “I wear one hat, and it has versatile results,” he said. Versatile is a good descriptor for Denninger and an adjective that quickly comes to mind as one watches him enthusiastically give a tour of his North Main Street gallery. The 4,000-square-foot gallery sprawls across the lower floor of a former 19th-century boarding school which he purchased and renovated five years ago. He lives upstairs …

City Council may contribute funding for a marketing and development specialist in 2011.
The Foundry Art Centre, an exhibit space and hub for local artists, faces a funding shortfall in the next year and has asked the city for money. Executive Director Laura Helling and members of the board of directors appealed to the city during the Nov. 30 city council work session. The city owns the Foundry Art Centre's facility, the former American Car and Foundry. The city also contributed $2.2 million to renovate the property before it opened in 2004. The centre is responsible for its own operational costs. Funding comes in part from program fees, corporate and individual donations. The current economy has made it challenging for the Foundry to realize a profit, said Helling. The Foundry has consistently had about a $60,000 annual …
