The Nu-Art Series last Saturday kicked off a set of shows at the Metropolitan Gallery that will feature a dozen St. Louis musicians performing their own work and that of well-known jazz composers.

In keeping with Nu-Art's ongoing theme of “jazz and visual arts," there's also a new show up at the gallery, featuring jazz-inspired paintings by Tony Renner and photos of jazz artists in performance taken by longtime St. Louis American reporter/photographer Roscoe Crenshaw.

There will be an artists' reception for Renner and Crenshaw from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Friday, February 19 at the gallery, 2936 Locust St. downtown., and the exhibition and concert series both continue through April 17. For a complete schedule of Nu-Art's jazz composers series concerts, see this post.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
