I arrived in St. Louis yesterday for the Major League Baseball All-Star Game festivities. The city is definitely all decked out and ready! There are baseball commemorative sculptures in the shape of the St. Louis Arch planted all over the city. They are being sold to benefit the St. Louis Sports Commission.
Tonight, I’ll be at Jon’s Pipe Shop painting Romeo Y Julieta Limited Edition Humidors featuring my work. I’m looking forward to that because i meet some of the nicest and most interesting people when i do these cigar signings. The shop is in Clayton, MO and the signing is from 4pm – 7pm.
Tomorrow and Saturday, I’ll be at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game Fanfest at the America’s Center in downtown St. Louis. Fanfest is this huge interactive baseball “theme park” that MLB sets up in the All-Star Game city. It’s a great way for people who don’t necessarily have tickets to the all star game itself to take part in all the festivities. You can get more information and order tickets at www.allstargame.com.
Friday night, I’ll be hosting an art reception at Wentworth Gallery in Des Peres. I hope to see many of you there. Wentworth always puts on a first class show and they have my entire collection on display.
Meet you in St. Louis! –Charles
