ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), April 2, 2017 - he Saint Louis Art Museum will present The Hats of Stephen Jones, a special installation of eight hats designed by one of the world's best known contemporary milliners. The hats will be installed as gallery interventions throughout the museum from April 21 through Sept. 4.
A British artist, Jones came to prominence in the 1980s with avant-garde designs that also engaged closely with artistic tradition. Jones' hats have been worn by some of the world's biggest stars and fashion icons from Lady Gaga to Princess Diana. In 2009, the Victoria and Albert Museum highlighted his designs in the exhibition Hats: An Anthology by Stephen Jones.
In St. Louis, Jones-designed hats will be interspersed throughout the galleries to dialogue with specific works in the permanent collection. The installation will complement Degas, Impressionism, and the Paris Millinery Trade, the first exhibition to examine the height of the Paris hat trade, as reflected in the work of the Impressionists.
The Hats of Stephen Jones is co-curated by Simon Kelly, curator of modern and contemporary art, and Zoe Perkins, textile conservator.
Jones will discuss the inspiration for his designs and their connections to the history of hats and art at a lecture on Sunday, April 23 at 2 pm in the museum's Farrell Auditorium. The lecture will be followed by a conversation with New York-based milliner Jennifer Ouellette. Tickets are $25, or $20 for museum members. Starting April 6, tickets can be purchased at the Museum or through Metrotix, which charges a processing fee.

OA Gallery Presents Bryan Haynes' For My Eyes Only - Works in Pursuit of an Illusive Masterpiece
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) -
OA Gallery, located at 101A W. Argonne Kirkwood, MO, has announced an extraordinary and exclusive exhibition of over 100 original
works on paper and canvas by Missouri artist Bryan Haynes.
For My Eyes Only - Works in Pursuit of an Illusive Masterpiece showcases the preliminary acrylic sketches and studies Bryan used to develop his early concepts into the final artworks familiar to and loved by collectors. Never meant to be seen by anyone but the artist, these paintings reveal the thought process of an artist pursuing an original idea. This unique event will be the first time these works have ever been placed on display or offered up for acquisition to the public.
"In choosing which images to display, I got to take a visual stroll through the inner history of Bryan's work," said Shawn Cornell, partner of OA Gallery. "It was inspiring to figuratively hold his thoughts in my hands."
For My Eyes Only - Works in Pursuit of an Illusive Masterpiece will be on display from March 3 - April 29, 2017. Opening night is Friday, March 3, from 6-9 and will include a book signing, "Growing Up With the River" illustrated by Bryan Haynes. The cover artwork and ten interior illustrations created
for the book will also grace the gallery's walls.
Born in Missouri, Bryan Haynes has quickly become an extremely well-known and admired artist across the country. Historical figures, Native Americans and local characters inhabit the sweeping landscapes of his narrative paintings. Influenced from an early age by American Regionalist painters Thomas Hart Benton and Grant Wood, Haynes's landscape and historical paintings are characterized by sculptural forms, undulating lines, and rhythmic gestures. These paintings
celebrate local history and people often ignored in the cultural centers of urban America.
Since graduating from the Art Center College of Design in 1983 his artwork has been represented in New York, San Francisco, St. Louis, Kansas City, and Santa Fe. Recent corporate and institutional commissions include murals and large scale paintings for; The Kauffman Foundation in Kansas City, The Missouri Botanical Garden's permanent collection, The Westward Expansion Memorial Museum
at the Arch, Novus International Inc., and the Danforth Plant Science Center.

"Art @ Des Peres Hospital" Exhibition St. Louis Regional Artists
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com) - Through the vision and support of Des Peres Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri, Art Saint Louis has joined with the The Best of Missouri Hands, Foundry Art Centre, and St. Louis Artists' Guild in presenting one of the largest collections of original, locally-made art in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
Art @ Des Peres Hospital features 107 original artworks in a variety of media by 17 St. Louis regional artists. The project is a unique endeavor to connect and enrich the lives of hospital patients, staff, and visitors.
It is well documented that art can help in the healing process. This program was developed to help alleviate some of the strain of a hospital experience. Art can take us out of the moment by giving us something else on which to focus. It is our hope with this exhibit that we can create a richer environment and a more pleasant experience for patients, guests, employees, and medical staff.
The shared goals for the program are:
1) Create a dynamic, aesthetically rich, and engaging environment through artworks spanning a wide range of styles and expressions.
2) Spark curiosity and elevate and enliven the intellectual and emotional well-being of hospital visitors and staff.
3) Celebrate the work of local artists and further develop their audience by creating a new outlet through which artists can impact our community.
Art @ Des Peres Hospital Fall 2016-Spring 2017 exhibition opened mid-November 2016 and continues through April 30, 2017. The project incorporates an extensive space on the second, third, and fourth floors of Des Peres Hospital. The exhibition is free and open to the public during regular Hospital visiting hours, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. For more information, visit Art Saint Louis
