Art Saint Louis proudly presents "Silence & Noise," a new multi-media art exhibition currently on view through May 29, 2014 in the Art Saint Louis Gallery at 1223 Pine Street in downtown St. Louis. We are pleased to announce that this exhibition actually opened a couple of weeks earlier than originally scheduled and is indeed up, open & ready for viewing!

 
FREE OPENING RECEPTION
Please join us in the Art Saint Louis Gallery next Saturday evening, April 19 from 6-8 p.m. for the free opening reception for "Silence & Noise." Parking suggestions can be found at the bottom of this email. If you miss the reception, the exhibit is on view through Thursday, May 29 and Gallery hours are Monday, 7 a.m.-4 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, 7 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday, 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Closed Sundays & holidays, including closed for Memorial day weekend & Memorial day. Free & open to the public.
 

Silence & Noise features 55 artworks by 49 St. Louis regional artists from Missouri and Illinois. The artworks in this multi-media exhibit include paintings, film and digital photography, printmaking, woodwork, mixed media, glass, drawing, and more.

Silence & Noise was an all media juried exhibit. Works in this exhibition reflect the push/pull of either noise or silence. The two concepts of opposites are examined, demonstrating how silence and noise work both as a force against AND alongside one another. Artworks featured are either comprised of clean, simple lines and are visually silent, OR the artworks are multi-layered, messy and thereby visually noisy. In addition to the physically representation, artworks that are conceptually silent or noisy are also presented.
 

Serving as Jurors for this exhibition were artist Marie Bannerot McInerney, Professor, Fiber Department, Kansas City Art Institute, Kansas City, MO, and artist Gary Passanise, Professor, Webster University, and founder, Executive Director, The Santo Foundation, St. Louis, MO.

“something unique to communicate: a story, an observation, a purpose, or an idea.”

TWAIN'S WORLD!  ONE NIGHT ONLY… 4-18-14.com  7 pm
Professional Dress Code Required

This show features over 50 pieces from Smithey's Mark Twain series.

Smithey views himself less as a painter, sculptor or draftsmen or even just an artist for that matter.  He sees himself as a creator, a creator of ideas and tangible things, a creator without the limitations of labels like artist, writer, inventor, etc.

The Mark Twain series is the dissection of the process of creation and is the culmination of years of exploration, evolution and innovation in that process. To Zack, it's more about the journey than the destination. There are an infinite number of ways to get from point A to point B. He is discovering and inventing new pathways to his destination. Instead of creating a series that is dominated by a single style, this series seeks to explore variations in technique while unifying the series with a single subject, Mark Twain. The Mark Twain series is not only a testament to Zack’s inventive spirit, but also pays homage to one of the most celebrated figures in modern literature; who just so happens to be from our own backyard… Hannibal, Missouri.

Reception: Sunday May 4th, 2014 2-4 p.m.

Creatures of myth and legend have always fascinated me. From an early age when being read to from Welsh and German faerie tales, these stories began to inspire my own inner monologue. They represented the "what if". Gathered from roughly the last year of my work, this series is an anthropological approach to the personal inner world these stories helped create.

Three, Six, Etc. By Louis Brengard

March 28 - April 18
Opening Reception: March 28 from 6-9 pm

Three, Six, Etc. is an attempt to create work that is guided by mathematical constraints placed by the artist, to distance the work from its maker. The processes used transform arbitrary fragments of the world into something more comfortable to view, not unlike the prismatic organization a kaleidoscope provides. This idea to create objective work is driven by feelings of fickleness and various fears that come about when a creator must present their work. There is an intent to relieve the expectations and responsibility attached to creating.

Play Ball!


Working primarily in watercolor and with the figure and portraits, James brilliantly portrays the human form in action, but also keeps an illustrated feel to the piece. He brings to life the legends of sport through his own interpretation and an exquisite mix of drawing and painting. The story of each athlete is brought to life--a figure captured forever--legendary.

The Dark Room: Thursday, 27 March 2014

Thursday, March 27th is the official opening of our first photography exhibition, "New On The Scene". We are holding a reception from 6-8pm and hope you can make it out to view the phenomenal work and enjoy a glass of wine / a bite to eat!
 

"New On The Scene" - curated by Susan Hacker Stang in conjunction with The International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum.

 "New On The Scene" showcases eight photographers working in the St. Louis area. Seven are working in the field as professional photographers; one has gone on to graduate school. They are working as assistants or doing freelance work. Some are specializing in editorial photography, portraiture, food or photojournalism. These eight are fresh to the scene and doing a bit of everything…that is how you start out to make a life in photography. Each one loves this medium. They experiment. The photographs on display here come out of the personal expressive projects which each continues to explore. Images made with toy cameras, multiple exposures, abstractions on walls and more.

Jamie Adams, jeanniestand, 2011, oil on linen, 83" x 78
Reception: Friday, April 11th, 6 – 8 pm runs through May 17th

The Philip Slein Gallery is pleased to present Recent Work by Jamie Adams. From 2006 to 2012 Jamie produced the Jeannie Series of black and white paintings based on the black and white Godard film Breathless, featuring the beautiful and tragic American dreamer Jean Seberg. The paintings are set in the Jeannie character's Paris apartment, but Jamie uses the apartment as a tabula rasa on which to project his own dreams.

In his newest work, the Niagara Series, he dispenses with the black and white altogether, and Jeannie is likewise freed from the confines of her Paris apartment. In the Niagara Series, Jeannie joins an assorted cast of characters including Marilyn Monroe at that most oneiric of locations, Niagara Falls.

Ever since Heraclitus, the river has been a symbol of time passing, of flux: and the waterfall, if nothing else, symbolizes a change of course or, perhaps, a rebirth. Nature inspires our dreams, our dreams inspire our imagination--and our art. It would not be a surprise, therefore, to hear Jamie Adams say: "I dream of Jeannie."

In addition to the Jamie Adams exhibition, the gallery will also be presenting a selection of gallery artists.

CARMON COLANGELO: STORMS
April 4 – May 3, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, April 4th, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm
THOMAS SLEET
Modem: Topology (Project Room)
LANA Z CAPLAN
Woman in the Dunes (New Media Room)

Storms is an exhibition of experimental mixed media prints by Carmon Colangelo created at Flying Horse Press. Using the processes of relief printmaking and chine-collé, Colangelo has developed a unique vocabulary of architectonic forms and fragments, repurposing discarded laser cut plates from architecture models, calligraphy, and maps to create turbulent spaces. This body of work explores storm patterns and environmental instability, marrying random male and female hurricane names in the title of each work: Jose & Joyce, Ernesto & Emily, Agnes & Andrew, Gustav & Grace, Barry & Bertha, Wendy & William, Odette & Otto, and Floyd & Fifi. These prints expand on Colangelo's interest in representing the dynamic shifts of our interconnected world. This show marks Colangelo’s seventh solo exhibition with the gallery. A fully illustrated book accompanies the exhibition.

In the Project Room, the gallery presents an exhibition “Modem: Topology” by Thomas Sleet.
In this current body of work, Thomas Sleet continues an investigation into the structural dynamics of repeating forms and the interrelationships between resultant internal and external spaces. The evidence provided by these experiments evokes natural structure, synthetic assembly and the possibilities of interface between. This work is inspired by methods of building found in nature; “I get inspiration from natural formations of earth, rock, and debris typically found along creeks, streams, and rivers.” The materials Sleet employs: cement, wood, ground red brick, carpet and mirror – echo the colors, textures and surfaces of these natural topographies. Thomas works primarily with recycled and reclaimed materials, and does so because there is a story or history inherent in these objects– like a spirit. Working with these material histories, [spirits] enables the artist to articulate concepts and principles that transcend specific composition, material bias and scale. Shape and form evoke function and includes both positive and negative form function. Meaning that the positive form can serve as vessel, shell, solid or fluid and the surface can even be permeable: Effigy, shrine, vestibule, crucible, reservoir, altar, vessel, obelisk, and portal.

In the New Media Room, the gallery presents a video work “Woman in the Dunes” by Lana Z Caplan. Named after Hiroshi Teshigahara’s 1964 film, which was based on the Kobe Abe novel Suna no Onna (1962), Woman in the Dunes is a looping video installation shot on the Amalfi Coast of Italy. In the video, a darkly tanned mother holding her child in her arms walks slowly into the deep azure water. Step by step they are subsumed, the child resting her head on the mama’s shoulder, trusting her completely as they are increasingly submerged. As they reach the water level to the child’s neck, she tips her head away from the mother, bending backwards into the water. The mother dives head first into the water. In what feels like an eternity, several seconds pass as we wait for them to surface. They do not…. only the mother emerges, further out to sea than where they disappeared. She swims into shore, slowly, skillfully and alone. As in Teshigahara’s film, a task of domesticity, here motherhood is alluded to as an endless cycle of struggling for survival with the encumbrance of the child, and no end in sight. Each time the loop repeats, the woman makes a choice between her role as a mother with the dependence of the child or the freedom of the individual. There is beauty in both options, the natural and familiar image of the baby carried on her hip like an Italian Madonna, and the graceful dive and smooth strokes of the confident, solo swimmer. But there is also tension and danger in the depths of the water. While the horizonless expanse of water undulates, the viewer is left to wonder, what’s become of the baby.

Hunt Gallery: Friday, 21 March 2014

Altered Connections: Recent Art from Serbia will open with a public reception on Friday, March 21 from 6 – 8 pm at the Hunt Gallery at Webster University. Comprised of video installations, photography and textiles, Altered Connections will introduce some of the important and, in some cases, provocative work being created by Serbian artists.

With accelerated globalization, much recent art practice has emphasized a multi-dimensional understanding of identity. Serbian artists – and the Yugoslavian diaspora – are at the forefront of this global approach. The exhibition will include works by eight internationally acclaimed Serbian artists: Dejan Kaludjerović, Aleksandra Lalić, Tanja Ostojić, Vesna Pavlović, Ivan Petrović, Vahida Ramujkić, Zoran Todorović, and Katarina Zdjelar.

A panel discussion featuring Serbian exhibition artists Dejan Kaludjerović, Vesna Pavlović, and Vahida Ramujkić will be presented on Friday, March 21 from 11:30-1:30 in Sunnen Lounge in the University Center at Webster University.

In her exhibition catalogue essay, Suzana Milevska, Endowed Chair Professor of Central and South East European Art Histories at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, wrote:

“Almost after a quarter of a century from the split of Yugoslavia, the politics of memory and futureless nostalgia still dominate the public space and local politics in Serbia. The domination also concerns freedom of movement, expression and creativity necessary for producing emancipated subjects that would neither produce false mnemonics nor succumb to current instant reconciliatory right-wing and neo-liberally driven ideologies.

"One could argue that some of the contemporary artists in Serbia, especially the emerging artists of younger generations (e.g. the youngest artists who are presenting works in Alter Connections) may not even have clear personal memories of the 1990s war conflicts. However, the burden of collectively inherited guilt, or implanted “false memories” from not yet reconciled tensions, the cultural and political isolation, the impoverished middle class, nationalistic discourse and ethnic hatred surrounding “lost” territory compete with the desires to be included and to fully “belong” to contemporary “Europe” (meaning European Union).”

Koken Art Factory: Friday, 2 May 2-14

Friday, May 2nd, 6-10pm & Saturday, May 3rd, 12-5pm

In May of 2012 the STL Outsider Art Fair was held for the very first time. Located in the Koken Art Factory’s Pingle Building, it marked the beginning of an annual affair that intended to showcase local and national outsider art talents in St. Louis.

The term ‘outsider art’ was coined by Roger Cardinal in 1972 as the English translation of the French term art brut. The term art brut was first used by painter Jean Dubuffet to describe artwork done by people on the fringes of society that had no knowledge of the mainstream art world.

ADMISSION: $5 – Suggested Donation. All donations will be used to cover production expenses.

BEVERLY MAYERI
April 11th through May 10th

Beverly Mayeri works with refined and elegant heads and figures often using meticulously patterned details that allude to the inner life of emotions, thoughts and human frailties. The pieces are painted in washes of acrylic paint. Mayeri’s figures “evoke a richly complicated human presence,”and often “bridge the psychological, the political and the sensuous within one hybrid form.”

Green Door art gallery: Friday, 28 March 2014

“In the Shadow of the Arch”
March 5, 2014 through April 26, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, March 28, 2014  Time: 5– 9 p.m

“In the Shadow of the Arch” is a one-year visual exploration of something Garry McMichael has looked at almost every day for the past thirty years, and like many of his fellow St. Louisans, has largely taken for granted.  “In the Shadow of the Arch” is a multi-medium exploration starting with photography but also includes sketches, paintings in several mediums, and digital paintings created on an iPad or computer.  McMichael said his goal is to create a body of work depicting the Arch in such a manner as to encourage viewers to reacquaint themselves with what can only be described as one of the most beautiful sculptures of the 20th century. McMichael is a visual artist working in a variety of mediums.  It is his goal to show others, the world around them from an inspiring, somewhat different point of view.

To draw attention to the subjects he attempts to capture them during those fleeting moments when the atmospheric conditions and the ever-changing light come together in a flash of visual inspiration. It is at those moments that he attempts to turn everyday situations and objects into unforgettable imagery, be it in the form of a photograph or a painting.

McMichael states, “On rare occasions my art slips into the world of impressionism, but, because of my years as a commercial photographer, I am quite comfortable as a realist creating representational art.”

Also featured will be Tatyana Robberts’ plein air and Russia paintings along with her handcrafted batiks. For the past few years Tatyana Robberts has been doing mostly Plein Air painting in oil, but has been working in other media when the mood strikes.

Our hours are Wednesday thru Sunday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm- Closed Monday and Tuesday

Duet: Saturday, March 29 2014

Yamini Nayar & Jerry Monteith

March 29 –May 31, 2014
Opening Reception: Saturday, March 29, 6pm-9pm

To see a world in a grain of sand
And heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour—William Blake

In Duet’s second exhibition Yamini Nayar and Jerry Monteith explore the vertigo inducing ecstasy of dramatic scale shifts. The monumental and the microscopic collide in both 2D and 3D forms where it becomes difficult to tell where surface and volume begin and end. Nayar’s photographic work compresses space combined with an astonishing set of collaged figure ground reversals as a paradoxical sense of order emerges like a pyroclastic force from otherwise scrambled bric-a-brac. Monteith starts small and continues to pare down to what seems like a sub-atomic vanishing point. The effect of Monteith’s grain-like ‘Attractor’ series evokes Blake’s “hold infinity in the palm of your hand” as Nayar’s Chrysalis provides the embodiment of “eternity in an hour.”
