CityWalk Arts!


“Bee Bum” in Jeske Sculpture Park

There is a vision among many “Fergusonians” that this city might become a destination for the arts. With a growing number of arts-related businesses and venues little by little this vision is being realized.


Corners Frameshop & Gallery, located at 2 S. Florissant provides custom framing services to residential and commercial customers throughout the metropolitan area. Robin Shively, owner, has earned the designation of Certified Picture Framer by the Professional Picture Framers Association. Her gallery primarily displays art and gifts handcrafted by local artists, many of whom are from Ferguson and North County. These artists are also showcased at frequent exhibits and First Friday events. You can reach Corners at 314-495-7452 or cornersframing@gmail.com.


Almost Picasso wants you to know that this is “the perfect place to go for a fun-filled afternoon or evening! Our instructors will guide you through each step, to recreate a painting, in a light-hearted, party atmosphere!! Be sure to bring your favorite wine/beverage and snacks!’” Almost Picasso is located at 18 Church Street. Call 314-801-6671 for more information.


FYI (Ferguson Youth Initiative) at 110 Church Street offers SLAM on the first Friday of every month, 6-9 p.m. in the Back Bay area. Youth can participate for free in open mic, spoken word, music and art. For information, contact info@fyifergyouth.org.


Good Shepherd Gallery, 252 S. Florissant hosts exhibits of spiritual art throughout the year. This month: “Corporal Works of Mercy,” March 5-31, with a reception Sunday, March 5, 1-3 p.m. Call Glynis McManamon, RGS, at 314-522-1155 or email rgsicons@yahoo.com.


The 427 GALLERY, located at 427 S. Florissant Rd, is a non-profit public service provided by Pearce Neikirk and Partners Realtors, LLC. The 427 GALLERY has proudly exhibited the artistic work of over 30 area artists since 2011. Exhibits are hosted by the featured artist and with specific exhibit times. The 427 GALLERY is very happy to announce the continued exhibition of the art of Mary Nichols through the month of March. Mary is a local, well established artist and has in the past been associated with the Northern Arts Council. For information on scheduling please call 314-521-5002.


Ferguson Farmers’ Market has invited artists to demo creative activities and Northern Arts Council has been involved in Art at the Market.


Viewing of the sculptures at Sculptureworks Ferguson, 830 S. Florissant Road, can be arranged by contacting Michael Quintero (mquintero@stlcc.edu) or Bryce Robinson (brycer@wustl.edu). Saturday March 11 Sculptureworks Ferguson will hold an opening reception for “Whistle While You Hum,” a solo exhibition by Ryan Doyle from 6:00-9:00 p.m. On Saturday, April 1, “Iron Pour in the Park” will take place at Jeske Sculpture Park, an all-day event brought to you by Sculptureworks Ferguson.


While the Jeske Sculpture Park is not within the CityWalk boundaries (the seven acre park is located at 211 Thoroughman Avenue, and on the web at www.jeskesculpturepark.com) the Jeske Sculpture Park Commission is also working to expand the presence of public art into Ferguson’s downtown business district. Currently the CityWalk District can boast two public sculptures, both by Bryce Olen Robinson, himself a Ferguson original. “Primary Lines” can be viewed in front of 401 S. Florissant Road. “Emergent Behavior” stands in front of 419 S. Florissant Road.


Want to promote the arts in Ferguson and throughout North STL County? A good contact is Dana Sebastian-Duncan, volunteer and acting director of the Northern Arts Council (NAC). Contact NorthernArtsCouncil@yahoo.com or 314-896-1278 (324-896-1ART).
