St. Louis ❤️ St. Louis! 

Capturing All Angles of St. Louis

It's getting "hot in herre" at I Need That Art Gallery inside The Designing Block at 7735 Clayton Rd., where we are hometown proud to announce the "St. Louis Loves St. Louis" group art show, celebrating the unique charm, beauty, and character of Greater St. Louis.

The exhibition opens its doors on Thursday, August 31st,
with an opening reception from 5 pm til 8 pm.

Join us for an evening filled with art, laughter, t-ravs, beer and fun photo ops crafted by Martha Valenta. 


That's right - as an added treat, guests at the opening reception can indulge in some unforgettable photo ops. Be prepared to become "Becky Queen of Carpet" as you fly under the iconic Gateway Arch. Or grab a giant toasted ravioli! And don't miss the chance to pose with "Hi-Fi-Fo-Fum." These fun sculptures, made by Martha Valenta, will add a touch of whimsy and nostalgia to your experience during this show.


The opening reception promises to be a memorable celebration of all things St. Louis. Join us for an evening filled with laughter, art appreciation, St. Louis foods, and an opportunity to meet some of the talented artists behind "St. Louis Loves St. Louis."

Tickets for the reception are encouraged, but not required.
