From Photos to Stoneware, Art Fair Is 'Awesome'


Marianna Riley Of the Post-Dispatch, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


Four members of the women's basketball team at East Central College in Union stood looking at a display of photographs Friday at the St. Louis Art Fair in Clayton. "Awesome," they said, in unrehearsed unison.

The young women had been assigned to visit the fair as part of their Introduction to Art class, and they were pleasantly surprised. "We thought it would be a bunch of pictures," said Karen Dolan.

"We've never seen anything like this," said Sarah McAlister. Their colleagues, Kathleen McManus and Heather Garrison, echoed the sentiments. They stopped next at the booth of a glass blower. "Oh, neat . . . look at the colors . . . it looks like the ocean," they exclaimed. Kathe Cunningham of Chesterfield and her daughter-in-law, Desley Cunningham of southern Missouri, also were early arrivals Friday afternoon. Both said the work displayed was a little too contemporary for their tastes, yet, "It's beautiful stuff," Desley Cunningham said. "And high ticket. You'd probably buy only one item." Tom Kohn, an owner of the Diamond Shop on Central Avenue, had a good view as artists spent most of the morning and early afternoon setting up their booths. "Clayton has really been gearing up for this," he said, pointing to the recently improved streets and sidewalks, new parking meters, newly planted trees and sprinklers. Tregea Bevan from Montpelier, Vt., won a first-place award at last year's St. Louis Art Fair and was back for this one. A designer who not only weaves her own silky, soft fabric of muted cottons and rayons in her own design, Bevan also designs and sews her garments. They range in price from $150 to $550. In the course of a year, she goes to maybe 14 shows across the country.
