When a couple local artists get together and have an art show, we call that cool. But when more than 50 artists gather to sell their works — everything from glass pieces to paintings and from jewelry to photography — we call that Art Outside. This overwhelmingly awesome art fair is held at the Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest Avenue, Maplewood; 314-241-2337) from 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday (September 5 through 7), and in addition to all of the visual arts, it features live music by Zimbabwe Nkenya, Tight Pants Syndrome and other musicians, plus fashion shows, a trick-roping cowboy (that's cowboy Randy Erwin pictured) and more! Admission to Art Outside is free; to get a look at the list of artists — which includes Carmelita Nuñez, Janice Wallace and Greg Kluempers — visit www.schlafly.com.
