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

T. Renner, "'The Dancers': Improvisation for Duke Ellington," 2009, acrylic on paper, 14" x 8".

I have had a number of my jazz-influenced works on display at Nu-Art Series Metropolitan Gallery, 2936 Locust Street, St. Louis, Missouri, this spring and your final chance to see them will be this Saturday, April 17. The exhibition coincided with Nu-Art Series Jazz Composers Series: "Re-Arrangements & Nu-Compositions," which presented 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 final concert in the series will be Saturday, April 17, with the Stan Coleman Youth Jazz Band performing the work of Duke Ellington.
