Congratulations! Wish we had been there. Hope all is a huge success! Best wishes from New Mexico.
Thank you for the lovely print. Have a good place to hang it once i get a frame
Your Dad and I have to give a shout out to Melinda Bayers for an awesome job on the food for the grand opening. You did a fantastic job! We couldn't have done it without you!

Our purpose is to represent and show some of the finest artwork by artists in the Jefferson County, Ste. Genevieve, and St. Louis Regions. The gallery will also provide educational painting workshops/lessons for all ages.

Operating as usual

Congratulations to Julie Beard, our resident "Gourd Artist" at Tanglefoot Art Gallery, who just sold one of her beautiful painted "Octopus" gourds. Julie is a super talented artist who specializes in selecting dried Missouri gourds, then hand carves, and paints them. At times she also enhances them by adding creative ceramic pieces to bring them to life! Awesome work Julie!

Tanglefoot Art Gallery is excited to add a new artist, Tom Dolan. Tom is from Hillsboro and he creates wonderful turned bowls from some really interesting woods. Please stop by and see Tom's work. We now have two highly creative wood artists for you to see at the Gallery. Mike Uding is another local/Ste. Genevieve wood artist who specialized in creating beautiful segmented wood creations. We are very pleased to have both of these artists at the gallery!
