Every year, the Delmar Gallery Shop expands its offerings to create a more comprehensive holiday shopping experience for the St. Louis community. The shop is carefully curated, with items created by some of the most talented local and national artists working in clay, glass, fibers, wood and metal. Whether you are looking for something functional, decorative, or wearable, the Gallery Shop has many exceptional artists to choose from. This year, the shop is playing host to some special featured artists in addition to their regular roster. Included are Cassville, MO based woodturner Kim Kenney; Ceramicist Susan Speck from Mission, KS; jewelry designers Larissa Loden of Minneapolis, MN; Milli Hershman of Naples, FL and Patricia McCleery Alden, MI.
Featured artist Kim Kenney on working in Missouri: “My interest in woodturning has opened my eyes to all the local trees, shrubs and plants. I notice more and have learned to identify many of the species of local woods from the bark, the leaves as well as the wood itself once it’s been cut. All of my burls are from within about 100 miles of my home in Cassville, MO. I do not use any exotic wood or anything imported. I have learned quite alot about our beautiful Missouri Ozarks and the trees that thrive here!”
In addition to these special collections, the shop will also host a series of events throughout the holiday season.
