Finding signs of creativity and hope in the neighborhood

While you’ve been out on your daily walks, have you discovered “The Monk” on Taylor between Pershing and McPherson? A friend told me she had seen a neighborhood mother with her 2 children painting 3 tree stumps on the east side of the street. As of yesterday, two of their creations had washed away.Nicki's Central West End Guide Art & Architecture Services  Sisters of Apostle of Sacred Heart of Jesus Cathedral Basilica  The thoughtful sisters of the Apostle of Heart of Jesus, who live just west of the Cathedral Basilica at 4440 Maryland, left a prayer jar on the front walk, above.

There is a pencil and some paper inside so you can add a name or an intention. Where to start…

And in this very strange and scary time, the beauty of the Spring season is a reminder that we have a lot to be thankful for.

The Buena Suerte Social Club puts on a show

Nicki's Central West End Guide Art & Architecture Events, Sightings  Wesley Forduce Jon Cournoyer John Nunley John Marlow HorsleyArts Glenn Stone Dan Gualdoni Buena Suerte Social Club  As the eleven members of the Buena Suerte Social Club gathered for one of their monthly meetings over drinks and Chinese food  several months ago, the newest member of the group, CWE-based artist Milo Duke, above, had what he called a “Mickey Rooney” moment. When he realized that all the members were artists—and prominent ones at that—Duke said to the group: “With all this talent, we should put on a show!”

His proposal was realized last Saturday, March 7, when about 250 people attended the Buena Suerte Social Club’s opening, Of Gods and Men, at HorsleyArts, 4374 Olive Street.

Duke is photographed with Fermi’s Question,a self-portrait which was a semi-finalist in a 2004 portrait contest at the Smithsonian.

CWEnder John Marlow displayed cartoons he creates for family and friend occasions. He told Linda Horsley, the gallery’s proprietor, that he starts his drawings with a “big nose.” Marlow is a founder of the Great Forest Park Balloon Race.
