Philip Slein Gallery: Thursday, 15 September 2016


Reception: Thursday, September 15, 2016, 5-8 pm
Exhibition runs through October 15, 2016.

The Philip Slein Gallery is proud to present Subject Lines, an exhibition of abstract paintings by Alison Hall, Donald Moffett, Liat Yossifor, and Robert Zungu. Four painters, four methodological  approaches -- four lines of attack -- that each yield unique and signature results in which boldness and calm seem to reside in equal parts. 

Alison Hall’s paintings often recall Renaissance architecture, in this case the Arena Chapel in Padua, where layers of meticulously applied paint are ascribed to a plaster ground. Donald Moffett extrudes spindles of monochromatic oil paint to completely cover the picture plane and aggressively confront viewers with its charged psychological tactility.  Liat Yossifor coerces colorful oil paints into varying greys. Yossifor’s physical and performative engagement with her paintings record subconscious symbols in its expressionist surfaces. Using altered 19th century Japanese stencils as his point of departure, Robert Zungu employs laser toner ink and silver overlay to create constellations that both further the potential for Abstraction and mark time with new material phenomenologies.

Framations: Friday, 2 September 201

Ron Vivod, GEAG

In more than 10 years of exhibits on Main Street in St. Charles, Framations has worked individually with members from Gateway East Artists Guild (GEAG). Now the group will hold its fourth recurring exhibit at the gallery.  Using the theme "Gateway East Goes West", the members will display their work September 2 - October 13.

There will be an Opening Reception on September 2 from 6-9pm with a variety of food and drinks offered as well. The reception is free, family friendly, and open to the public. Framations will also invite the public to vote for People's Choice in this group exhibit when they visit. The voting continues through the full length of the exhibit.  

Running concurrently in Gallery Two will be "Experiments in Abstraction - Art by Steve Femmer". With a background in graphic design/illustration and a career spanning more than 30 years, Femmer's new focus is in exhibiting his own fine art. Known primarily for his precise work in colored pencil and graphite, Femmer also works in acrylic, collage, and mixed media. With his subject matter incorporating wildlife, still life, figures and more, this exhibit focusing on the abstract is a step from the norm for the artist. "Femmer has a very precise, distinctive style of rending his subjects. We are eager to display his abstract work and show the public what a range this skilled artist has to offer," offers gallery owner Sarah Merideth. "I've seen a selection of the work in preparation for the exhibit and I believe it will be an exciting exhibit to see."

This exhibit will also open on September 2 and continue through October 13. Samples of work from both exhibits can be found on www.framations.com.

 EXPLORATIONS IN REALITY:
PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE PERMANENT COLLECTION
                                           

August 19 – December 30, 2016  Judith and Adam Aronson Gallery

                                                           
                                         Opening Reception Friday August 19th, 5-9 pm

Explorations in Reality: Photographs from the Permanent Collection brings together a selection of photographs from the permanent collection by Peter Bergheim, Felix Bonfils, Francis Frith, Frank Mason Good, Jean Pascal Sebah, Giacomo Brogi, Edward Curtis, Robert Doisneau. Arnold Newman, Andy Warhol, Bonnie Shiffmann, Phyllis Galembo, Lew Portnoy, and Robert von Sternberg among others, to examine relationships between reality and its photographic representations.

Photographs maintain an aura of absolute objectivity despite proof that photographers instilled their own artistic vision shortly after the invention of the camera. Democratization of photography made possible by technological advances, contributes to the increasing appeal of this medium, and a greater appreciation of its history.
Featuring more than one hundred eighty photographs, created between 1860’s and present, the exhibition offers explorations in reality while considering the complex relationship to it.

Reception parking is available at the Canisius lot located at the intersection of Lindell Boulevard and Spring Avenue.  Regular hours are 11a.m. to 4p.m., Wednesday to Sunday, and 11a.m. to 8p.m. on the first Friday of the month. The museum is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Houska Gallery: Thursday, 15 September 2016

Craig Carlisle
September 15 - October 15, 2016
Opening Reception September 15th 5-8PM

We are pleased to announce Craig Carlisle will have his solo exhibition at the Houska Gallery. The
exhibition will run from September 15 through October 15, 2016. The opening reception will be held at Houska Gallery located at 4728 McPherson Ave on September 15 from 5-8 PM.

The idea of meditation and contemplation play a major role in the paintings of Craig Carlisle. His
paintings articulate indelible images which evoke an emotional response from the viewer. The series of Big Heads are generally large canvas’s deliberately created on a scale that will empower a room. The Big Head is typically anonymous and always genderless. Carlisle opts to place the focus on the expression, eliminating the judgement of personal style we create for ourselves with hair or fashion.
Carlisle’s flower and garden paintings equally match that of the Big Head vibrancy, intensity, color, form and emotional depth. The perspective the artist uses allows the viewer to feel as if they are standing within the space. All Carlisle’s imagery comes from his imagination with the intent of creating a connection with the viewer.

Duane Reed Gallery: Thursday, 15 September 2016

JUN KANEKO & JEFFREY VAUGHN
September 9th - October 15th
Opening Reception Thursday, September 15th, 5-8 p.m.

Duane Reed Gallery is excited to present the work of Jun Kaneko and Jeffrey Vaughn. Both trained painters, Vaughn’s works explore the sublimity of nature through realism, while Kaneko’s work connects with the sublimity of form and abstraction through meditative patterns and shapes.

JEFFREY VAUGHN - Vaughn’s paintings communicate with outstanding serenity and clarity the calmness of being within nature; he achieves this with such accuracy that the viewer cannot help but to feel as if they are standing within the painting itself.

JUN KANEKO - Kaneko’s Dango forms are world renowned; both peaceful and powerful, strong yet gentle. Ranging from medium to colossal, his work maintains a strict consistency that allows the viewer to enter in to the same zen peacefulness regardless of how large or small. The form itself is only half of the experience, as Kaneko’s glazes take on a life of their own. His compositions are thoughtful, precise, and compliment the powerful, rounded surface they are united with.

Laumeier Sculpture Park: Saturday, 5 November 2016

Laumeier Sculpture Park opens an indoor multimedia exhibition by Mohau Modisakeng in the Whitaker Foundation Gallery at the Adam Aronson Fine Arts Center and an outdoor exhibition by sculptors Alison Ouellette-Kirby and Noah Kirby at the Amphitheater in the Way Field for the 2016 Kranzberg Exhibition Series.

 Mohau Modisakeng creates lush, elegant photographs and videos that reimagine the black body in contemporary society. Modisakeng is often the actor in his simple performances that express issues of rebirth against the historical trauma of colonization and apartheid.

The sculptural installation features a massive sheet-metal megaphone with an interactive audio element. The speaker is inspired by previous work in their Tone Deaf series that explores the noise and notions of communication, incorporating a mechanism that translates and projects the visitor’s voice into a harmonic birdsong as a response to the flora and fauna in the Park.

Both exhibitions run through January 29, 2017.

Opening reception is Saturday, November 5, from 11:00–1:00 p.m. at Laumeier Sculpture Park, 12580 Rott Road, Saint Louis, Missouri.

Bonsack Gallery: Friday, 26 August 2016

Photographer Jerry Tovo’s exhibit, “They May Have Been Heroes: The Homeless Veterans Project,” will be on display in the Bonsack Gallery at John Burroughs School from Friday, August 26, through Monday, October 3. All are invited to an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, on August 26.

Tovo, a U.S. Army drill sergeant during the Vietnam War, has traveled the U.S. since 2011 taking portraits of homeless men and women who served in the U.S. military. Tovo’s oldest subject served in the Korean War, the youngest served in Iraq. Many of them struggle with alcoholism, drug and gambling addiction, mental illness including post-traumatic stress disorder and severed family relationships. Through powerful black-and-white images, Tovo brings to the fore the plight of these men and women and reaches out to those who might help them with shelter, job searches, training, rehabilitation, re-socialization and physical and mental care.  His attention to detail and mastery of digital photographic techniques coupled with a stark and powerful style result in works that make a compelling case for his subjects.

Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays.

Opening Reception for Three Summer Exhibitions

Fri, Jul 29
6?9pm

The Pulitzer presents three exhibitions that reframe the objects and environments of everyday life. Exquisite Everyday: 18th-Century Decorative Arts Objects from the J. Paul Getty Museum presents works of decorative art from France and Italy, showcasing the period's achievements in domestic design. The Ordinary Must Not Be Dull: Claes Oldenburg?s Soft Sculptures is dedicated to a body of work in which Oldenburg playfully altered the material, form, and scale of commonplace items, overturning sculptural conventions. Architecture collective raumlaborberlin disassembles a structurally unsound St. Louis house, giving its salvaged elements new life inside the Pulitzer as an installation, raumlaborberlin: 4562 Enright Avenue, that explores the history, present, and future of urban dwellings.

Teen Museum Studies collaboration with artist Kelley Walker 
at CAM August 5-December 31, 2016
The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (CAM) presents an unprecedented collaboration between St. Louis-area teens and acclaimed multidisciplinary artist Kelley Walker. Kelley Walker: Schema is on view August 5 through December 31, 2016, and is organized by the 2016 class of Teen Museum Studies, CAM?s career exploration program. Serving as an extension of the Museum?s upcoming comprehensive examination of Walker?s work?Direct Drive, which opens September 16?Schema presents examples from several of the artist?s most iconic series. Held each summer, Teen Museum Studies offers a select group of high school students the opportunity to learn from CAM staff members in all departments and culminates in the teens organizing an exhibition from start to finish.
 
Throughout his career, Kelley Walker has explored the manipulation and repurposing of images in order to destabilize issues of identity, race, class, sexuality, and politics.
For Schema, the walls of CAM?s Education Gallery are completely covered by digitally printed vinyl. Each wall features enlarged photographs of Civil Rights protests overlaid with scanned Crest and Aquafresh whitening toothpaste. The toothpaste overlay simultaneously draws our attention to areas of violence and alludes to the gestural brushstrokes and drips of the Abstract Expressionists. The scale of the reproductions envelopes the audience, making us feel part of the scene and situating us within a historic, yet ongoing, American narrative.
 
Opening Reception and Artist Q&A

This exhibit, entitled "All Things Wild", is an all media exhibit of work focusing on the animal kingdom. This includes everything from the teeny tiny to the great and mighty.

On display for the same period will be the exhibit Spirit Song, a mother and daughter exhibit by Judith and Ginger Repke. This mother and daughter work with the creator individually and/or with each other when making art.  Judith encouraged her daughter Ginger to paint her visions and gave her oil paint, canvas and an easel for Christmas.  Ginger has taken her camera on mother-daughter vacations and to various other locations, some photographs provide Judith with inspiration.  Judith's finished work contains things God has put in without her knowledge and Ginger likes to find and comment on them.  Ginger seeks technical advice and comments on her work from Judith for guidance and growth. Both delight in this creative collaboration. This exhibit will also open on July 15 and continue through August 25. Samples of their work can be found on www.framations.com.

Erica Popp "Family Heirlooms" - Photography & Ceramics

Opening Night: Friday, August 19, 6pm - 10pm  
POPP.jpg
Join us for Erica Popp's MFA Exhibit titled, Family Heirlooms. This exhibit lovingly, captures the gentler side of life and history surrounding American family values. Erica has infused ceramics and photography into a storytelling capsule. Pointing focus onto her own ancestors and the life of an immigrant family. 
"The work is an exploration of my family tree and stories of my ancestors. I've been preserving family photographs by scanning and digital restoration. I'm using these to create both hand-printed reproductions of the photographs for precious hand-bound albums, and for the ceramic plates, my attempt to create the family heirloom pieces that my family never had to pass down. My great-grandparents came here from Germany and Norway to own land and make a better life for themselves and their children in America. They didn't come with much, and as immigrant farmers, they never accumulated the type of wealth that enabled some American families to purchase precious objects to pass down to future generations, such as jewelry or fine china. These objects are something I can pass down to any future children or to my nephew. They tell the story of one branch of our family coming to America and fulfilling the American dream."
"The other portion of the show is my rural landscapes. For this MFA thesis show they are hand-printed photographs in cyanotype and van dyke brown. Historic processes honor the history of American immigrant farmers like my family. I feel a deep nostalgia for farm life despite growing up in the suburbs. I think part of our family history stays with us no matter how different our contemporary lives are."

s p r e a d
artists'  opening reception:  
7.8.16 from 6pm to 9pm


with artists Michael Drummond + Kat Reynolds and writings by Elizabeth Tucker

"spread" is a portrayal of the inner life of adolescence, in all its awkward beauty. Elizabeth Tuckers? journal-like entries of her young life inspired Michael Drummond and Kat Reynolds to utilize a surreal depiction of sexual frustration. Like moments plucked from dreams, these hypnotic photographs lend epic qualities to this transitional time of self-discovery. As these artists revisit the shy fears and burgeoning appetites of the teenage years, a hormonal air begins to permeate this work of sexual awakening. In remembering the unease of youth, they seek out the seeds of desire that develop into the passions of adulthood.

Exhibition Run: 7.8.16 to 6.13.16
Hours:1-4pm Wed & Sat or call for an appointment.
