ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), December 12, 2017 - An impressive collection of "hidden gems" from Laumeier Sculpture Park are now on display at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) in the exhibition titled "All Shapes and Sizes: Ernest Trova's Legacy at Laumeier Sculpture Park."
This careful selection of 35 maquettes and a series of silkscreen prints spanning 15 years, drawn from Laumeier's extensive and mostly unseen Ernest Trova collection, are being showcased in Terminal 1's Lambert Gallery now through May 14, 2018.
"This exhibition presents the first iteration of a collection of largely unseen artworks that represent Trova's creative process for sculptures that are still on view at Laumeier and throughout the region," said Dana Turkovic, Laumeier Sculpture Park Curator. "Laumeier is pleased to present these miniature sculptures to the community of tourists that use St. Louis Lambert International Airport as a portal to St. Louis's many cultural gems, and to introduce our visitors to an important local artist and his influence on public art throughout the city."
The creative process by which Trova approached his stainless-steel and bronze artworks is in concert with his creative philosophy. This particular collection highlights Trova's tendency to initiate a formal concept in two dimensions before expanding into the third and the fourth. The maquettes are selected from his Gox, Abstract Variation, Poets and Falling Man series, as well as a series of small, experimental metal works in abstract compositions.
All Shapes and Sizes was commissioned by the Lambert Art & Culture Program with support from the St. Louis Regional Arts Commission.

This beautiful, flowing wrap - "Burning Heart" - features original art. The wrap is available at ShopVIDA.com
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), October 22, 2017 - The solar system is full of mysteries, and artist Eric Woods, owner and founder of The Firecracker Press, let his creativity soar into space with the creation of The Solar System Series, now on display at St. Louis Lambert International Airport. The exhibition will be on display near A Gates entrance/exit at Terminal 1 through next year.
This intricate, multi-paneled work is letterpress printed on paper, from hand-carved woodcuts and other recycled materials like cardboard and vinyl siding. Each panel was printed individually over the course of several months, then pieced together and mounted on wood. Together, the panels form a colorful and show-stopping image that is already getting lots of attention from travelers. Hidden in the piece are all sorts of "Easter eggs" for the viewer to find, such a Starship Enterprise and a lost satellite, among others.
The Solar System Series exhibition is part of the Lambert Art & Culture Program's temporary exhibition program. The program is supported by the Regional Arts Commission.
The Lambert Art & Culture Program is led by the seven-member Airport Art Advisory Committee. Current members are Lisa Cakmak, Associate Curator of Ancient Art at Saint Louis Art Museum; Ellen Gale, Executive Director Clayton Chamber of Commerce; Shelley Hagan, Wells Fargo Curator Corporate Art; Leslie Markle, Curator of Public Art, Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum; Kiku Obata, Founding Principal of Kiku Obata & Co.; Roseann Weiss, Director of Community and Public Arts for the St. Louis Regional Arts Commission; and Carlos Zamora, Creative Director at Express Scripts.
The mission of the Lambert Art and Culture Program is to create a visually outstanding impression of St. Louis Lambert International Airport, generate community pride, and ensure that art at STL continues to complement and build upon the airport's rich visual legacy. The program aims to highlight the St. Louis region's unique art and culture, while also showcasing national and international works, focusing on both visual and performing arts.
