St. Louis Arts Alliance Previews Fall Season

 In Culture

On Thursday night, the St. Louis Arts Alliance hosted an October preview party for members of the Alliance and surrounding arts community at founder Emily Lane’s Washington Ave loft.

Guests mingled in the beautifully decorated space, taking in and discussing the art scattered around the home (both visual and performed by models) while sampling hors d’oeuvres from The Libertine. In one of the upstairs loft areas, the Wine Merchant was on hand to educate guests about select wines—a wonderful Montepulciano d’Abruzzo among them—and treat them to a tasting. Cellist Ken Kulosa also performed a solo sonata by George Crumb.

The event was in anticipation of October’s Black Angels party, to be held at Link Auction Galleries on Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 6:30pm. The evening celebrates the avant-garde, and members will draw upon their creative collaborations for an evening of art and music, along with Wine Merchant tastings and Libertine nibbles from Samantha Nawrocki. George Crumb’s work will reprise in a performance of his “Black Angels” by members of the St. Louis Symphony, and fashion designer Michael Drummond will cultivate costuming for dance choreographed by Brandon Fink. The set for the dance is assembled from demolished historic St. Louis buildings, representing the “fallen angel” in the event’s title. For more information or tickets, call 917-364-6489 or email
