"Re-Arrangements & Nu-Compositions": The Music of Thelonious Monk at Nu-Art Series Metropolitan Gallery

T. Renner, "Improvisation for Thelonious Monk #4," 2009, acrylic on coated card stock, 6" x 4".

I have a number of my jazz-influenced works on display at Nu-Art Series Metropolitan Gallery, 2936 Locust Street, St. Louis, Missouri, through April 17. This exhibition coincides with Nu-Art Series Jazz Composers Series: "Re-Arrangements & Nu-Compositions," which presents a number of local jazz composers playing their own compositions as well as works by jazz masters.

Along with my paintings, photographer Roscoe Crenshaw exhibits 30 of his photos capturing jazz musicians in performance.

The concert schedule:

* Sat. March 6: The Chris Burchett Quartet (the work of Thelonious Monk)
* Sat. March 13: The Anthony Wiggins Quintet (the work of Freddie Hubbard)
* Sun. March 21: The Willie Akins Quartet (the work of Sonny Rollins)
