Leon Bronstein: Between The Fantastic And The Real
OPENING RECEPTION Friday, March 6  5-8 PM

The exhibition, Leon Bronstein: Between the Fantastic and the Real, shows the range and the evolution of Leon Bronstein’s work throughout more than 40-year career as a sculptor. From the humble beginning of carving in olive wood for tourists in Israel, to a successful career as an internationally recognized artist that now works with 3D computer modeling to design monumental sculpture for art in public spaces.  The exhibition includes sculptures in olive wood, bronze and aluminum, and drawings that inform the viewer about the process of creating his sculpture. The exhibition also focuses on Bronstein’s process of developing and executing the site-specific sculpture All You Need Is Love, which will be installed in the Grand Center Arts District.

Katherine Simóne Reynolds
“a Different Kind of Tender”
Reception March 26, 2020 at 6 PM – 8 PM
Exhibition Date: 2/24 - 4/4, 2020

Katherine Simóne Reynolds’ practice is working in emotional dialects and psychogeographies of Blackness the “non”, and the importance of “anti-excellence”. Her work tries to physicalize emotions and experiences by constructing pieces that include portrait photography, video works, and choreography. In the process of making subtle changes to her practice she has learned that creating an environment built on intention brings the most disarming feelings to her work. Utilizing the Black body and her own personal narrative as a place of departure has made her question her own navigation of ownership, inclusion, and authenticity within a contemporary gaze. She draws inspiration from Black glamour, the Black athlete, and the Church. Her practice generally deals in Blackness from her own perspective.

Alexandra Arshanskaya: Spatial Exploration Through Line

Friday, February 28, 6 – 8 PM

Alexandra Arshanskaya’s study reconditions the venerable interior storefront window cases of the Historic Arcade Building as the home for her considerations of the concept of spatial perception as closely associated with time, manifest as murals. She explores the space as movement in time. To give shape to this aspect of “experienced” space, Arshanskaya expands her art practice with live performances. Live music broad- ens the experience of space and time for the audience. Picture, sound and space together become one single act.

JAMES AUSTIN MURRAY: Fusing Time
TOM REED: this is the before
RICHARD HULL: Painting and Drawing
PATRICIA OLYNYK: The Mutable Archive
FRANK SCHWAIGER: SYZYGY-when heavenly bodies align
CHRISTINA SHMIGEL Window on Forsyth: In Our Town

Opening Reception Saturday, February 29. 6-8 pm
February 29 – April 18, 2020

James Austin Murray writes, “These are both a continuation of the works I’ve focused on over the last several years, and a fusion of work I had begun in my late 20’s. Reaching back in time to older work is something I felt would happen when I had begun this work so many years ago. Every so often, the artwork revisits an old path, stemming from a previous impulse. This bridging of old and new characteristics in my art and history makes connections that are both satisfying and revelatory. These paintings are about paint, objecthood, and, although these are not sculpture, their relief aspects take that direction. Where this work ends is still a mystery to me, and finding myself in this uncertain territory is most invigorating.” As a NYC firefighter during the September 11th attack in New York City, Murray paints on how his life was informed following the atrocity of that day. His current work is both about the paint and the light reflected on and within it. Murray states, “Sometimes the dark is where you find the best surprises.”

Richard Hull’s paintings fill their canvases with large swathes of color; blocks of opaque hues are overlaid with sweeping brushstrokes clustered together that function like non-transient ripples on the water, as rings within a tree, or of grooves on a record player as the latter description evokes the same feelings of growth that Hull’s painterly gestures achieve. The comparison describes the texture of thick paint upon the canvas some of the patterns, and the liveliness of the purposeful irregularities within Hull’s stroke.

The river is continually referred to in Tom Reed’s work. Once a symbol of time and change in his paintings, it now has become a collaborative partner. Reed spends days and hours on the river fly fishing. Mementos of this time on the river, beaver chewed sticks, logs, arrowheads, and junk, slowly began making their way into the studio and eventually into the work. Over time they formed a bridge between the river and the creative output in the studio. In this current exhibition, this is the before, Reed combines painted landscapes with small, wooden sculptures in the form of trail markers dotting a hiking trail. The largest, an arrow, reads simply Before. The word is both a warning and an invitation to view any ordinary present-day moment through the eyes of a time-traveler from the future. What would you change if you could go back in time, it asks? What if you are there right now?

The Mutable Archive is a video work by Patricia Olynyk. The Mutable Archive is a multi-layered performance video project that interrogates the lives of those housed in a special archive split between two continents. Who speaks for those who are lost, particularly in the absence of verifiable archival material? Olynyk photographed an inventory of human specimens collected by a 19th-century Viennese anatomist, Dr. Josef Hyrtl. Nine commissioned writers have each produced a speculative biography about a chosen subject in Hyrtl’s collection. Each performed script, a 4K cinematic video, interrogates the mechanics of storytelling and the roles of assumption and subjectivity in science. Each vignette is edited into a richly textured video performance, which is projected sequentially.

Frank Schwaiger’s new sculptures took years to complete. All of them reflect Frank’s passion for stonework: “I am a stone carver,” he says. “It’s what I was put here to do.” He sees his work in the ancient tradition of sculpture created not as art but as “transmission objects” embodying the human desire to “reach and control the beyond, the impossible-to-understand”. In his artist’ past statement, Frank writes, “We make things with our hands - that unique ability makes us human, and even more amazingly, earns us an awareness of our spirit. All art is riven with this quest for who we are. The root of my iconography can be traced back, like Paul Klee's, to 17th century Bavarian folk art and the making of things with the hand. That is who I am.”

A landscape of rural water towers fills Bruno David Gallery’s Window on Forsyth. Christina Shmigel presents a new series of sculptures based on an iconic image of the American landscape, the water tower. Whether adorning a building in NYC or marking a town along an interstate highway, the water tower has a strong hold on the collective imagination of Americans. As it stands alone in the distance, the tower speaks to a traveler’s sense of loneliness, to a sense of the stranger-passing-through. The water tower also announces the existence of a community and marks a place of settlement.

Public Hours Tuesday - Friday 11 - 6 pm, Saturday 11 - 5 pm and open by appointment. Closed Sundays and Mondays.

Exhibitions open on Friday, February 7, from 7 – 10 pm
and run through March 6, 2020.

VULTURES at MIDNIGHT
Edo Rosenblith conceived "Vultures at Midnight" as a way to provide a platform for four wildly different artists who he has collaborated with in the past, to come together to show their newest work. For Rosenblith, an important part of being an artist is knowing one’s limitations, engaging with a community of trusted peers, and sharing resources in order to support one another. This is how artistic communities survive and thrive. "Vultures at Midnight" will feature work by Edo Rosenblith, Janie Stamm, Jon Young and Erik S. Peterson.

OFFER BOX
Monaco’s Project Gallery accommodates a generous display of small works on paper by Peter Pranschke. Consisting of several hundred individual drawings, cut portions of drawings, and collages pasted together from their fragments, the show features pieces in various stages of completion that have slowly been collected and reworked over a thirteen-year period. Scenes and personalities from life and imagination are depicted in equal measure using colored pencil, India ink, erasure and gauche. This inflated selection of material, sifted from an even larger and more congested pool of otherwise useless debris, highlights the artist's habitual practice of mark making and provides insight into a creative process that yields an overabundance of mindlessly rendered images.

OPENING RECEPTION Thursday, February 6  4-7 PM

Too Hot to Sing is the result of Kasey Fowler-Finn’s research of how global warming directly affects the abilities of insects to find suitable mates. Her study focused on the treehopper. For this exhibition she collaborated with sound artist Stephen Vitiello whose recordings show how vibrational signals sound at different temperatures, and with Impact Media Lab, a creative agency for scientists.

Fowler Finn’s study shows how climate change can impact mating success and, ultimately, survival of species that communicate through vibrations. It is important to note that more than 90% of insects use vibrations to communicate within and between species.

Vitiello and Fowler-Finn used a specialized laser recording device to record the sounds of insects as they moved on the stems and leaves of plants. Vitiello then manipulated the sound recordings to make them audible to humans.

This exhibition, a collaboration between a scientist and an artist brings climate change into sharp focus as one of the existential challenges humanity faces.

Philip Slein Gallery checks its vision with a new exhibition, 20/20.
Opening Reception:  Friday, February 21, 2020, 5 PM to 8 PM
Exhibition runs through Saturday, March 28, 2020

As we move into a new decade the gallery is taking a look back at many of the artists which we have shown in the past, and looking ahead to envision the future of serious painting.

The Philip Slein Gallery is first and foremost a painting gallery, that is our passion. The gallery’s first exhibition of 2020 will demonstrate this powerfully with a show featuring 20 painters spanning the Modern to Contemporary era. The exhibition clearly represents the gallery’s serious dedication to painting, and includes a very wide group of artists with one thing in common - excellence in painting. 

Jamie Adams, Andrea Belag, Ernestine Betsberg, Richmond Burton, John Dilg, Lori Ellison, Keltie Ferris, Alison Hall, Warren Isensee, Valerie Jaudon, Richard Kalina, Tracy Miller, Arthur Osver, Ann Pibal, David Row, Jackie Saccoccio, Robert Sagerman, Cary Smith, Dan Walsh, John Zinsser

While some in our broadly based art world take great pleasure in bananas duct taped to the wall, we prefer the passion and lasting satisfaction of showing work which will grow in strength over the years. We feel that this approach will reward our viewers and collectors both visually and spiritually, throughout their lives.

Arcade Contemporary Art Projects: Friday, 21 February 2020

Back to Our RootsOpening reception 6 to 9 pm Friday, February 21. The exhibit runs through March 20.
“Our past shapes our unique perspectives, but through exploring our specific experiences, we can build community by recognizing the commonalities and universality of these experiences,” said Sophia Coon, director of the exhibit and a student in Webster’s Department of Art, Design and Art History.
Artists were invited to submit a piece they felt addresses their specific experience and informs their present self. “Back to Our Roots” received just under 50 submissions, of which the jury selected 23 works. 
“Back to Our Roots” is operating on its values of generosity and gratitude. Merchandise featuring “Back to Our Roots” graphics will be for sale at the exhibition’s opening. The proceeds will be donated directly to Bread & Roses Missouri. The mission of Bread & Roses Missouri, which is to use “an arts lens to examine social and economic justice issues,” in addition to their belief that “cultural and creative expression are a means to affect deep and lasting social change” aligns closely with the goals of this exhibition.
“With this exhibition, we hope to promote healing by finding gratitude in the act of confronting our pasts,” Coon said. “We believe healing is the first necessary step to resisting oppressive systems and finding peace.”

The exhibition 20/20, curated by Kasper Lorene Woldtvedt, Project Manager for Barrett Barrera Projects, focuses on the infinitive “to see” as a constructed noun rather than a verb…and vision as an art subject as well as an object.

The works contained within the 20/20 exhibition consider the convergences of the activity and psychology of looking at art as well as the art of seeing. The exhibition includes a diverse body of work that includes film, objects, and works by more than 20 artists. Artists include Miami-based sculptor and set designer Brookhart Jonquil, South Korean designer Aggie Nam/Godsomware, and Los Angeles-based new media artist Rollin Leonard.

Brookhart Jonquil will present a lecture about his work on Friday, January 24th from Noon – 1 pm in Sverdrup 123 on Webster’s campus.

Back to Our Roots is a diverse and inclusive exhibition of Webster University student work that aims to address a reconciliation with the past.

Framations Art Gallery invites the public to visit and immerse themselves in photography. For 6 weeks, their 14th annual juried photography exhibition will feature 88 works by 41 artists from the St. Louis area. This exhibit, title Beyond the Lens XIV, will begin with an Opening Reception January 17 from 6-8pm.

Popular among both artists and visitors to the gallery, Beyond the Lens is the only exhibit that is held on an annual basis at the gallery. According to the owner, Sarah Merideth, "Beyond the Lens was the first juried exhibit we held at the gallery, only a few short months after we opened in 2006. We knew from the great response that we would want to produce the exhibit annually. All year long, we are asked when the annual photo show will be." The exhibit will continue through February 27, 2020. During the full length of the exhibit, visitors will be able to vote for People's Choice, which will be announced at the end of the exhibit.

The opening reception on January 17 is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served and the artists will be present to speak with visitors.

Framations is open Tuesday - Saturday 10-6 and Sundays 12-5.

Mark Dion: Follies
Opening on Saturday, February 15, 11 am – 1:30 pm with artist remarks at 11:30 am.
Artist lecture at Webster University’s Winifred Moore Auditorium on Friday, February 14 at Noon.

Mark Dion has fashioned a world-wide reputation as an innovative sculptor and installation artist whose points of departure include the intersections of the historical and the contemporary, as well as the man-made and natural worlds. Mark Dion: Follies is the most comprehensive look at the artist’s architectural works from the 1990s to the present; sheds or shacks filled with the tools of the trade for scientists, botanists and naturalists who live in, study and collect natural specimens. Laumeier will present selections from the original exhibition. Visitors will experience sculptural installations such as Hunting Blind (The Glutton) and Hunting Blind (The Dandy Rococo), Dion’s elaborate takes on the outdoor protective structures used by hunters, as well as The Memory Box, a shed filled with dozens of keepsake objects stored in individual containers that suggest the ways that inanimate objects are associated with treasured memories. Approximately one dozen drawings, prints and photographs will round out the presentation

Duane Reed: Friday, 21 February 2020

Ken Worley
"My strength is to render what I see. In my artistic vision, I focus not on objects, but upon reflected light, seeing everything, including myself, as a mirror. I paint using vertical lines creating layers of interwoven color, depicting light’s subtlety. Using photography to capture the subject matter for my artwork, I paint a space where the viewer can feel both attached and detached, a sort of emotional and psychological tug-of-war, subtly documenting our trace."

Lesley Richmond
"I approach making with a childlike spirit of experimentation and exploration. My work stems from a love of the wood red ceramic surface, particularly how it evokes many beautiful natural phenomena. Like imagining the way wind gathers and deposits leaves on a landscape according to changes in topography, I anticipate the manner in which ash will collect differently on the convex and concave surfaces of my gestural forms. These functional pots are developed as a place for this surface to exist and to be enjoyed as a part of our daily life."
