New November Gallery exhibitions that showcase the work of three local artists have opened at the Crossroads Arts Council Gallery, located at 310 West Pearce, Wentzville, MO. The gallery’s weekly opening hours are Thursday through Sunday, 11 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The mission of the Arts Council is to cultivate, nurture and develop the arts in our community by supporting local artists. Being located in the lower portion of Old City Hall, with the Wentzville Community Historical Society located in the upper portion of the building, both organizations provide a unique opportunity for cultural growth in the downtown historic district.

In the main gallery, visitors will be able to view the work of Colombian artist Martha Laline who recently moved to the Crossroads neighborhood. Her connection with animals and art runs through her veins. Martha is a faithful representative of a Colombian woman: passionate, talented and with a huge heart for life. As a creative woman, she designs accessories, restores furniture and shares her love of nature with her watercolor art.

Dale Cannon is the gallery’s featured artist. Known as the “thread guy”, Dale has been twisting threads since he was in high school. His know-how is easily read in this show which highlights an art that has become a passion for him.

The west gallery exhibition “What I See” offers us the unique perspective of art seen and remembered by Carol Baker, an artist who has lost most of her vision. Carol’s love of beautiful landscapes fills her paintings with rural scenes, towering mountains, mesas and arches. Although she lost most of her sight, her memories and intuition helped her complete her painting.

These new shows provide the perfect launch to enjoy these two spaces of organizations as a way to be in the present time and learn both the city’s past and a glimpse of the future, both at the same time. time.

The exhibition continues until 27/11/2022
