‘Art Feast’ Chesterfield Arts

The 14th annual ART FEAST GALA March 8 at the Kemp Auto Museum includes creative cuisine, live entertainment, auctions and artwork created exclusively for this event by regional professional artists. The mission of Chesterfield Arts is to provide quality and diverse programming in the visual, performing and literary arts; to promote public art and arts education; and to act as a resource for arts information in the West St. Louis County region.

A very special part of the evening will include the musical talent of Christopher Halen, 2013 winner of the St. Louis Teen Talent Competition and part of Two Mellow Cello Fellows, a performance by the St. Louis Children’s Choir and a very special announcement premiering a unique, community-wide project. Awards will be presented to recognize Leadership in the Arts, Visionary Artist and Visionary Educator.

As this is an arts organization, artistic attire is encouraged. Be expressive, create your own look, mix and match. It’s a great opportunity to have some fun expressing yourself. The alternative? Cocktail attire, of course! For the sartorially less adventurous, just pick a cocktail outfit you like, keeping in mind that spring trends include bursts of color and prints. And when all else fails, you can always rely on the year-round favorite: black and white.

[tricks of the trade]

Q: What is the new trend in handbags? Small? Large? Short handles? Long?
WW_Alexander-WangA: For spring, the backpack makes a stylish comeback! Probably the most comfortable (and definitely the most ergonomically correct) bag for women to carry, backpack handbags have been hard to find in recent years. Now we can look forward to them again in a variety of sizes and fabrics (not the grungy camping or hiking gear category).
