Framations Art Gallery: Friday, 28 April 2017


Framations Art Gallery presents Alive
April 28 - June 1
Friday, April 28, Opening Reception from 6-8 pm.

We are surrounded entirely by life. People, animals, plants, microbes, etc. There are enumerable examples of life on our planet.  In a new exhibit entitled Alive, Framations Art Gallery asked artists: what symbolizes life to you? Their answer came in a plethora of styles, sizes and media.

With widely based interpretations, many artists focused on imagery of people, animals, plants and insect, though some are more loosely based on the fluidity of wind and some even hint at subjects on the molecular level. There are a total of 77 pieces in the exhibit by 31 artists from the St. Louis region.

The public is invited to view the artwork on display and to vote for People's Choice in this exhibit when they visit. The voting continues through the full length of the exhibit, ending on June 1, 2017. This exhibit was juried by Robin Hirsch-Steinhoff, Artistic Director of Art Saint Louis.

Pacific Rose
new works by Cole Lu

Opening Reception April 22, 2017   7–10pm

April 22–May 28, 2017 on view by appointment

The story has two interpretations of its beginnings, one is the story culled from personal memory, and the other is a fictional landscape. Both contain the dual functionality as queer evidence and gesture. Drawing on Gertrude Stein’s imperative to “act so that there is no use in a centre”; the sculptural works determinedly avoid conventional narrative, and de-center the art in the contemporary age of display. Pacific Rose act as nonsense literature, which creates meaning out of form with an anarchic potential by making fun of language, presents a challenge to the power visual language has to name, know, and own the world. It is a parody of sense, and that is the sense of it. The installation presents a space that does not distinguish between an ocean, a shore, a pool, or a gallery. Rather, it is a borderland that is outside or beyond language and definition--a space of creative potential. The sculptural works detail an alien’s identity--as both queer and migrant--with a significant geographical feature: water in the dryland. The objects we identify within the sculptures: an old book, snow skis, plants, a neon light, concrete, metal, plastic, faux suede and a rock do not directly reference the ocean or a pool. They speak to loss and belonging, and they abstractly elaborate on water’s wetness and the vastness of the sea

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 4, 2017, from 5 to 9 pm
Exhibitions Dates: May 4 – June 3, 2017

WILLIAM CONGER This / That
MICHAEL BYRON Framed Abstractions 2005-2012
JUDY CHILD Revelations
KELLEY JOHNSON Somewhere Between Here and There
BUNNY BURSON And Still I Rise

In Gallery 1 , the gallery presents an exhibition titled “This / That.” of recent paintings by William Conger. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. William Conger continues his lifelong investigation of formal non-representational abstraction (This) nuanced by the suggestion of illusionism to evoke an ambiguous welter of private and cultural memories, allusions, feelings, places and events (That).

In Gallery 2, the gallery presents an exhibition titled “Revelations” by Judy Child. As a painter, Judy Child, has always been fascinated by how versatile paint can be. This new series of paintings explores that versatility. She left behind brushes, palette knives and, most importantly, color. By stripping away color and narrative, she focuses on the natural beauty of serendipitous and complex configurations of the paint.

The physical act of pouring and manipulating the paint plus the effects of gravity and the drying process determine the outcome of her paintings. In these new paintings, she searches, explores and anticipates something she want to see but have not seen before. Each day she goes to her studio excited to see what her process reveals. The unpredictable journey of the paint creates the fractures and informs the natural and dynamic surfaces.

In Gallery 3, the gallery presents an exhibition titled “Framed Abstractions 2005-2012” by Michael Byron. The paintings, which have never been exhibited in St. Louis, are inspired by the organic geometry of the borders present in Indian miniatures. The artist has taken this decorative embellishment as a primary compositional element that operates at the crossroads of the geometric and the gestural. The results are both formally rigorous and lyrically poetic.

In Gallery 5, the gallery presents an installation by Kelley Johnson titled “Somewhere Between Here and There.” This is the artist’ sixth solo exhibition with the gallery. Kelley Johnson continues his interest in paintings ability to create optical space while at the same time interacting with the viewer as an object. Kelley thinks of the new work as installations that talk about the possibilities and limitations of painting along with the viewers role as participant. Using external elements such as lines or patterns that move through the picture plane onto the floors and or walls of the gallery, Kelley creates interactions between internal and external spaces that function as a kind interactive painting.

In the Window on Forsyth space, the gallery presents an installation titled “And Still I Rise” by Bunny Burson. Bunny Burson will create an installation of swirling shards of the actual confetti, which had been loaded into air cannons and were to have fallen from the glass ceiling at the Javits Center had Hillary Clinton become President on November 8, 2016. This exhibition can be seen 24/7 from Forsyth Boulevard and will be on view through July 22, 2017.

SOHA Studio and Gallery: Friday, 21 April 2017

SOHA is pleased to announce our next exhibition by Greta Coalier.
A Solo Exhibition of New Paintings titled "Effloresce"
Opening Night: Friday, April 21, 6 - 10 pm

"My work is inspired by a love of textiles coupled with a rich memory of objects and experiences throughout my life. I often reflect on the visual images that these experiences conjure up and incorporate them into whimsically dichotomous narratives. 

From the soft intricate patterns and stitching on the quilts of my childhood to my early wonder of space exploration, space ships, and ultimately space shuttle explosions, I contrast memories like these into a poetic language of comfort and woe. You’ll find themes of beauty and tension throughout the work that I create. A mermaid itself is a beautiful fantastical creature, but folklore associates it with bad luck and misfortune. A mysterious cat in the night could be a friendly experience or one rife with daunting superstition. Cottages, cabins and skyscrapers floating in the dark ground of a night sky convey the feeling of excitement of an oncoming storm.

I also think my paintings convey a circular sense of time. The lush florals of 80’s décor complete with their cabbage roses were at once celebrated, dated, reimagined and then celebrated again. An old car comes with a history that may have outlived it's first excited new owner, but is now treasured for it’s age by someone completely new. 

All in all, the subjects of my paintings have polarity but are always grounded with a sense of growth and tradition. I covet the embroidery and needlepoint of my ancestors and the agelessness of the objects they left behind. I find their work inspiring and timeless and I strive to do the same. Cradle to grave, seed to bloom, cloth to canvas."

Savage Light and Dark
Sat, Apr 22 2017 Reception 3–5pm

On display through May 13

Celebrate photography created by St. Louis youth through a photographic workshop organized by teaching artists Carly Ann Faye and Regina Martinez. Influenced by Medardo Rosso’s experimentation with sculpture, serial documentation, lighting conditions, and darkroom processes, young members of the Pagedale community will photograph each other and their environment over the course of a multi-week workshop. The artists will work with medium format Holga cameras which are known for their simplicity, plastic body, and mechanical idiosyncrasies such as light leaks and vignettes, paralleling Rosso’s practice. Participants will explore the relationship between film and the intimate glimpses of a subject from their daily lives. The public is invited to attend a culminating display of the young artists' work which will be installed on the Pulitzer’s Mezzanine.

VALERIE JAUDON: STATIONS AND STATES
OPENING RECEPTION: FRIDAY, APRIL 7, 5 – 8 PM
exhibition runs through MAY 20, 1017

During the course of Valerie Jaudon's career, she has been committed to redefining the parameters of abstraction. A member of the original Pattern and Decoration group, she is a representative of important tendencies of the larger Postminimalist movement. Jaudon was the driving force behind the influential 1991 Sidney Janis Gallery exhibition, Conceptual Abstraction (reprised and expanded in 2012 in an exhibition in the Hunter College Times Square Galleries), which featured among other, Stephen Ellis, Jonathan Lasker, Thomas Nozkowski, David Row and John Zinsser.

In the Project Space CHUCK WEBSTER: LANDS AND CASTLES

Chuck Webster can best be characterized as a visionary painter. His visual vocabulary is highly personal. Drawn from his imagination and from the world, the shapes in his Lands and Castles drawings are oddly recognizable yet are built from the abstract formulations so often seen in his work.

Mel Watkin, "Mississippi River Chart #88," 2013, acrylic and ink on paper
Dispositive Environments
Opening Reception March 24th from 6 to 8 pm
Exhibition March 24 – April 21, 2017

Dispositive Environments highlights the tension between technology and permanence, as well as the too often neglected ecological consequences of technology’s rapid expansion. The juxtaposition of still necessary mechanisms and technologies of the Industrial Revolution associated with, for example, sub-surface mining or railroad transport, are intertwined with the technological engines of transnational commerce and information economies. Art that responds to this intersection of social, symbolic and political forces will be shown with research-based documentation. 

The concept of the dispositive is here related to the context in which the work is executed and also experienced. Instead of merely a locus for the transmission of expression and content, works in the exhibition will encourage the viewer/participant to construct his or her own meaning. 

Featured artists: Ursula Biemann, Chris Jordan, Eva Ju, Libby Reuter & Joshua Rowan, John Sabraw, The Walter Collective; Mel Watkin.
Curated by Jeffrey Hughes.

Bruno David Gallery: Thursday, 30 March 2017


Bruno David presents 5 exhibitions by Carmon Colangelo, Jacob Laws, Yvette Drury Dubinsky, Frank Schwaiger, and Monika Wulfers.
Opening Reception: Thursday, March 30, 2017, from 5 to 9 pm
Exhibitions Dates: March 30 – April 29, 2017
Gallery Talk with the artists: Saturday, April 22 at 4 pm

CARMON COLANGELO Here be Dragons: Below the Fold
YVETTE DRURY DUBINSKY On the Move
JACOB LAWS Pilferage
FRANK SCHWAIGER Ondine
MONIKA WULFERS Open Lights

In Gallery 1 and 2, the gallery presents an exhibition titled “Here be Dragons: Below the Fold” of recent prints by Carmon Colangelo. Here be Dragons: Below the Fold is an exhibition of monotype relief prints by Carmon Colangelo responding our current political environment and the precariousness of our contemporary condition waters in the age of social media. This series of work expands on Colangelo’s personal taxonomy of images and ongoing daily practice of mapping and recording ephemeral information to respond visually and physically to the notion of global connectivity and our networked communities. Derived from hand drawings and digital processes combined with chance operations, found materials and printing from discarded laser cut plates from architectural models, the result is a generative series of colorful, haptic and playful works intended to express ideas about the anxieties, fears, and instability experienced around the world. The phrase Here be Dragons, first appeared on the Lenox globe in 1510 as a marker for dangerous and uncharted waters ahead.

Carmon Colangelo is a pioneering printmaker whose work combines surrealism and abstraction with the exploration of art history, science, and technology. His imagery presents a playful odyssey that references the meta-narratives of art history and is contingent on the juxtaposition of utopian ideals of modernism with the aesthetics of surrealism and conceptual art. An enduring feature of Colangelo's work is the unraveling of free-floating symbols and texts in an aggressive exploitation of various print media. He challenges conventional readings, producing disorienting spatial topologies and striking visual poetics. His images may swing from the obsessively personal to the openly topical, allowing disparate formal structures and semiotics to inspire the production of remarkable forms that are somehow freed from the preceding visual context and grammar.

In Gallery 3, the gallery is pleased to present Jacob Laws’ “Pilferage,” an innovative view of the merging of art with design. The exhibition will feature the works of a wide range of artists represented by the gallery. His unique vision brings a connection between separate aesthetics in a collaboration that could otherwise seem like a collection of misfit pieces; instead, a transformation of space into a creation of wonder, fluidity and enlightenment. This success lies in connecting components and the space they inhabit in such a way as to create a growing, ever-evolving bond between design, individual, and art.

In Gallery 4, the gallery presents an exhibition of recent prints titled “On the Move” by Yvette Drury Dubinsky. Dubinsky is known for her innovative combinations of drawing, print, alternative photography, and found objects. In her latest series of prints, Dubinsky meditates on the change and destruction occurring now in Syria, a place where she traveled just before the beginning of the ongoing civil war, and where she is still in contact with friends. She makes collages and installations, skillfully integrating works on paper using a round format, with silhouettes’ figures within a map, and a sociopolitical relevance. Her artwork draws on her observations about the ongoing refugee’s displacement around the world.

In Gallery 5, the gallery presents a sculpture by Frank Schwaiger titled “Ondine.” Frank Schwaiger is currently having a solo exhibition “Recent Works” at our second location – Bruno David Projects. The location in The Grove is open by appointment only.

In the Window on Forsyth space, the gallery presents “Open Lights” by Monika Wulfers. This exhibition can be seen all day and all night from the outside and, will be on view through April 29, 2017. Monika Wulfers explores the concept of line in minimalist sculptures and paintings, as well as computer-generated images and constructs. Various representations of lines and shapes created by lines are seen in her work, which draws upon spatial and temporal constructs. She uses two and three dimensions to examine the line and our perception of it.

Wednesday 10 am – 5 pm Thursday 10 am – 7 pm Friday 10 am – 5 pm Saturday 10 am – 5 pm, and by appointment. Free parking is available at the indoor and outdoor parking structures behind the gallery via the Lee Avenue entrance Handicapped visitors should use the indoor parking by Lee Avenue entrance and use the elevator to First Floor.

LAUREL PANELLA: IN SUSPENSION
Opening Reception: Friday March 17th from 6 pm to 9 pm
Exhibition Run: 3.17.17 to 4.19.17

The solo exhibition "IN SUPSPENSION is an exploration of volition and surrender. Occasionally growth involves the process of surrender - the uncomfortable, vulnerable state of giving your 'soul, essence, or intellectual Zeitgeist' over to another power, another philosophy, a teacher, a political agenda etc., in order to evolve to a new more illuminated place. I am curious to see what this surrendering, this choice to put one’s volition on hold, might physically look like, if one had to guess or imagine,"  states Laurel Panella.

Laurel Panella will be present at the opening. There will be light refreshment at this event which is free and open to the public.  Reese Gallery is located in the Cherokee Arts Neighborhood, just off of Antique Row.  
Hours: 1 - 4 pm Wed and Sat during exhibition run, or call for an appointment at: 314.954.7638

Framations Art Gallery presents Geometric by Design
Opening Reception on Friday, March 17 from 6-8 pm
Through April 20, 2017

When studying the elements of art, you learn of line, shape, form, color, texture and space. When it comes to shapes, then tend to be either geometric or organic in nature. Geometric shapes refer to those that are more orderly and rely on fundamental designs such as circles, squares, rectangles, triangles, lines, etc. In a new exhibit entitled Geometric by Design, Framations Art Gallery asked artists to explore the use of geometric shapes in their work.

With an otherwise open theme as pertaining to subject matter and media, artists from the St. Louis region were challenged to find the influences of geometry in their work, be it either realistic or abstract in design.

The public is invited to view the artwork on display and to vote for People's Choice in this exhibit when they visit. The voting continues through the full length of the exhibit, ending on April 20, 2017. This exhibit was juried by Melissa Whitwam, the Executive director of the Foundry Art Centre.

GREGORY BOOTH: Formulated Harmony

March 24 - April 9
Opening Night: Friday, March 24, 6pm - 10pm
Artist Talk: Wednesday, April 5, 7pm - 9pm

Gregory Booth: Mathematics is a powerful language that has the ability to convey complicated ideas in seemingly simple, elegant statements. Many of these ideas have an intrinsic beauty that I find to be a source of joy and inspiration. This series of work is an attempt to portray some the beauty and majesty I find in the wonderful realm that is mathematics.

Bonsack Gallery: Friday, 7 April 2017

Untitled (79), acrylic and mixed media on aluminum panels, 77”x96”, diptych
“Reflective Accumulations,” an exhibit of paintings by Grant Miller, will be on display in the Bonsack Gallery from Friday, April 7, through Wednesday, May 17. All are invited to an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 pm on April 7. 
Miller begins his paintings with an architectural grid and then builds on that initial structure through a chain reaction of controlled, determined layers. Once the angles and lines come together, the forms that exist within the gaps come forth creating a striking dichotomy. These fluid forms begin to take center stage in Miller’s work, while the initial structure that brought the effects together slowly recedes. Some of his works have between eight and 18 layers.

Miller explains that he records a set of experiences. Inherent in the process is the loss of peripheral information. Similar to reporting an event such as Hurricane Sandy or the presidential election, details are lost, and in that sense, Miller’s work mimics the bombardment of information in a digital age.
 
Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays.
