"Re-Arrangements & Nu-Compositions": The Music of Miles Davis and Wayne Shorter at Nu-Art Series Metropolitan Gallery
T. Renner, "Improvisation for Wayne Shorter #1," 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 27: The Jerome "Scrooge" Harris Ensemble (the work of Miles Davis/Wayne Shorter).
* Sat. April 3: JD Parran (the work of John Coltrane).
* Sat. April 10: The Reggie Thomas Project: the work of Andrew Hill.
