Oliver O’HanlonEverloving

Interested in exploring the relationship between childhood memories and a sense of place, but contained in the present moment, O'Hanlon has been revisiting important locations which marked his life, with many of the same people. This process is a form of channeling the past to bring a narrative to childhood and adulthood. Recently, when in India, he had the feeling of turning a page. These photos are the physical result of this transition. Opened to his own past, he now can see the future. It is a celebration of life.
Oliver O'Hanlon is a commercial photographer based in Geneva, Switzerland.

29 August - 26 September 2014

Duet: Friday, 12 September 2014

duet
Jacob Dahlgren (Stockholm) and Emily Stremming (St. Louis)

September 12 - November 15, 2014Opening Reception: Friday, September 12, 6pm - 9pm


Jacob Dahlgren and Emily Stremming both make art about analytical precision and the neurotic mindset that goes along with such exactitude. From behind  Duet’s wall Dahlgren  “infinity loop” of striped forms play on video. On the wall he composes a Neo-concrete ballet made from multicolored anchor points. These objects are designed to measure our cultural surfeit of consumption and production but instead become the actual subject of contemplation and “The Measure of All Things”. Stremming, on the other hand cuts up photographs of quotidian street and domestic scenes into a grid where the horizontal and vertical axes of the paper strips generate a hallucinatory mosaic. The resulting object records an ironic process: A quick snapshot photograph made to slow down into an epic unit of manual labor.  The industrial character of Dahlgren’s objects, often designed to work with the body to help guide and measure.

The Luminary: Friday, 19 October 2014

Late capitalism, it's like, almost overCarson Fisk-Vittori, Squiggle and Tube. Courtesy of Carrie Secrist Gallery.

Join us on Friday, September 19th from 7 to 10pm for the opening of two new exhibitions in the main and entry gallery. Featuring work from Julie Bena, Jesse Darling, Carson Fisk-Vittori, Mia Goyette and Christopher Thompson, the artists move between immediate commercial materials, imagined landscapes, pseudo-selfies and casual gestures, Late capitalism, it's like, almost over takes impending economic collapse and transformation as an inevitability to be met with a shrug, not a shudder.

In parallel, current artist-in-residence Lee Hunter opens Tracing Oblivion in the entry gallery. Tracing Oblivion offers an alternative way to look at the landscape. Through Timothy Morton's concept of the hyperobject, an object of massive scale and alarming complexity, Hunter investigates the many entanglements between objects, life forms, histories, time, and space. Tracing Oblivion is an ongoing and iterative speculation on landscapes that have no horizon, foreground, or background. The final results are site-specific, driven by an archival and forensic impulse that responds to places in all their uniqueness.

The exhibitions open on Friday, September 19th from 7pm-10pm and will remain on view Wednesday through Saturday from 12pm-6pm each week.

Opening Reception: September 26, 2014 6pm-8pm

“I don’t necessarily have a statement about the work really. I found these awesome photographs and I wanted to do something with them. It seemed unfair that a huge stack of photos circa 1981 were dumped in a shoe box, and sat on the floor at an antique mall. There are some real gems in the stack that are technically as good as anything I have seen from some contemporary photographers. I just wanted to add a conceptual layer to them by choosing those that reminded me of famous paintings or scenes from  well-known films.”

Free Opening Celebration: 2014 Kranzberg Exhibition Series, Tom Huck: Bugs

Laumeier Sculpture Park presents Tom Huck: Bugs. Tom Huck’s first public artwork is based on a series of original woodcut designs inspired by the insects inhabiting the microenvironment of the Park.

Bugs is Laumeier’s first commission of a permanent artwork by a St. Louis-based artist, and the first work specifically commissioned for the Children’s Sculpture Garden.

The Opening Celebration will feature food, beverages and live entertainment. Friday, October 10, 6:00-9:00pm, in the Children’s Sculpture Garden.

Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 12 September 2014

Opening September 12th through October 18th

Repetition, Rhythm, Pattern
an exhibition curated by Jane Sauer

featuring the works of
Giles Bettison • Katherine Glover • Luanne Rimel •Erica Rosenfeld • Harue Shimomoto

Duane Reed Gallery invites you to Repetition, Rhythm, Pattern, an exhibition curated by Jane Sauer showcasing 5 artists’ passion, or otherwise obsession, with repetition. Exhibition opens Friday, September 12th with a reception that evening 5 – 8pm. The exhibition will run through October 18th. Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10-5pm.

Repetition is a pervasive theme in art: rhythm, pattern, refrain, echo, chorus. It is intrinsic within the human condition to practice, copy, and imitate in order to learn, understand, and grow. Science has demonstrated the overwhelming richness of repetition in the elements of nature. Repetition is a thread throughout our experience in which the single unit multiplied becomes a new substance stronger than its pieces, but wholly representative of the essence and potential of the individual thing. Are artists who study repetition seeking the comfort of conformity, predictablility, or cohesiveness, or rather participating in an exploration of innate design and transformative growth?

Repetition, Rhythm, Pattern exhibits 5 artists’ thematic variations in which the act of repetition goes beyond the objects themselves and can create a spectrum of experiences, from peace and tranquility to an impression of noisy syncapations.

Also opening September 12th through October 18th

Monroe Hodder
Polyphonia

Monroe Hodder's recent paintings are grounded in a structure of stripes, a repetitive pattern that edges one layer against the next and gives an evenness of attention to the surface of the painting. While the visually layered work is not narrative, it is rooted in urban and natural metaphor and in a personal expression of fantasy, myth,  and belief. Paint is sometimes thickly kneaded into crusty piles; at other times the canvas seems drenched in liquid pools. About her work, she  says: “The essence of my work is pure color, as Matisse understood it, color that “must serve expression.” Like Matisse, I want to express “the nearly religious feeling” that emanates from “sensuous life, from flowers, figures, fruit on a table, and warmth of the sun.” Hodder currently lives and works in both New York and Colorado.

Platinum Visions, The Dark Room's next photography exhibition is on display from September 2nd through October 28th, and will celebrate its opening during the First Friday gallery tour in Grand Center on September 5th, 2014 with a reception.

Platinum Visions is a collection of photographs from Christian Nze & Ray Bidegain exemplifying the intricate photographic production technique of platinum printing. Each of these photographs is truly touched by the artist, making it one of the most beautiful forms of photographic history. A platinum emulsion is painted onto the watercolor paper by hand, and the artist then contact prints the negative, creating a timeless image crafted in the same way since the late-mid 1800s.

PlatinumVisions features work from Ray Bidegain (Portland, Oregon) and Christian Nze (Normandy, France).

Curated by Jeff Appel in conjunction with the International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum

Great art has always extended thought. Plotinus called the art object an object of contemplation. But, you might ask, what does one contemplate when one contemplates abstract art? In a word, beauty: pure aesthetic bliss. The abstract expressionists re-defined beauty, and John Zinsser, a devotee of abstract expressionism as well as early minimalism, creates his own version of the beautiful by riffing on both.


JEFF AELING: NEW WORK

 In addition, the gallery will present New Work by landscape painter Jeff Aeling. The Aeling exhibition will feature large-scale, luminous panoramas of the Mississippi River where it meets the Missouri River, north of St. Louis.

Gallery 210: Sunday, 24 August 2014

EXPOSURE 17: Notions of the Grotesque
Travis Lawrence
Heather O'Shaughnessy
Edo Rosenblith
August 23-October 11, 2014
Gallery 210
University of Missouri-St. Louis

The grotesque is absurd, bizarre, and odd or unnatural in appearance and character. In decorative art, Grotesque involves the inclusion of unusual human and animal figures interwoven in other forms. Such ideology of the grotesque is a more than fitting characteristic that can be used to describe the work by O'Shaughnessy, Lawrence, and Rosenblith.

O'Shaughnessy brings forth her beeswax sculptural pieces that are modeled after Italian anatomical sculptors. Reinventing the little known process of casting with beeswax, just as 17th century Italian anatomical sculptors had, she creates images inspired not only by the human anatomy, but resembles imagery reflected from her experience as a professional tattoo artist.


Gaining inspiration from 15th century illuminated manuscripts and Jungian psychology; Lawrence creates images of archetypal figures evoking deeper thought and individual interpretation. 

Rosenbilth is characteristically grotesque not for his admiration for previous art but for his fantastically distorted figures found throughout his drawings. His drawings reminisce early cartoon imagery and obscure caricature. Rosenbilth will also turn the gallery walls into a canvas of his own with a one of a kind wall painting that will remain in place throughout the duration of the exhibit.

Exposure 17 is scheduled to open August 23, 2014 and close October 11, 2014. A panel discussion and reception for the artists will be held September 6, 2014 between 4 and 7 that evening.

BUZZ SPECTOR: New Work
September 5 – October 11, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, September 5th from 5:00 to 9:00 pm

Bruno David is delighted to present a special exhibition New Work by Buzz Spector. The opening reception for the artist will be Friday, September 5, 2014 from 5 to 9 pm.

Buzz Spector’s excavations of books and reconstructions of libraries are well-known, but his work with found and altered volumes has always been accompanied by works on paper made out of elements from their dust jackets. As Spector has written, “books are formal presentations of text. They have titles, after all, and come jacketed, with paragraphs of introduction slipped between their covers and their pages.” This new work features collages made from dust jacket elements in the front gallery, while in the main gallery will be larger collages and drawings, a series of wall-mounted sculptures incorporating details of photographs of authors, plus a reinstallation of Frieze, the 60’ long arrangement of photos of authors Spector showed at the Huntington Museum of Art last fall. Spector’s ongoing meditation on reading and the culture of the book extends here to reflections on how—and when—writers become authors, how work of the imagination is performed via posing, and how the specialized, but also highly conventional, language of dust jacket blurbs can itself be excavated in search of new narrative meanings.

In the New Media Room, the gallery presents a new video work by Buzz Spector, “Selected Poems.”

Jacob Dahlgren (Stockholm)
and Emily Stremming (St. Louis)
September 12 - November 15, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, September 12, 2014 6pm-8pm

Jacob Dahlgren and Emily Stremming both make art about analytical precision and the
neurotic mindset that goes along with such exactitude. On Duet’s floor Dahlgren lays down
a dance floor-like “infinity loop” of color coded weighing scales. On the wall he composes
a block of carpenter’s rulers into a shimmering series of scored lines. These objects are
designed to measure our cultural surfeit of consumption and production but instead become
the actual subject of contemplation and “The Measure of All Things”. Stremming, on
the other hand cuts up photographs of quotidian street and domestic scenes into a grid
where the horizontal and vertical axes of the paper strips generate a hallucinatory mosaic.
The resulting object records an ironic process: A quick snapshot photograph made to slow
down into an epic unit of manual labor. The industrial character of Dahlgren’s objects, often
designed to work with the body to help guide and measure it are contrasted with the product
of a giant machine-hand hybrid.


Jacob Dahlgren (Stockholm, makes paintings based on striped t-shirts, eats canned food and constructs happy colored works of sculpture from the empty cans. He can make a sculpture from Ikea clothes hangers or a relief from disposable plastic mugs. Saws, pencils and carpenter’s rulers turn into art in his thoughts and hands.

Emily Stremming (St Louis, USA)  is a photographer currently making images based on scenes in St Louis. Her work examines the nature of surface in a photograph and also plays on the idea of the camera as a machine that shoots and destroys the subject. She spends hour upon hour weaving back together the images into a recognizable handicraft.

It was during those years that he and his wife began what was to become an extraordinary art collection, now recognized nationally for its depth and focus. Beginning first with American folk art, the collection evolved over the years to include outsider art, as well as found objects. The diverse exhibit will include drawings, paintings, sculpture, and photography.

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

Gallery Hours: Wednesday and Saturday from 1pm-4pm

Please joining us for the the Opening Reception of DISMANTLE with artists Rafael E. Vera and Phillip Finder at Reese Gallery.  In DISMANTLE, two artists take it apart - as they reveal the inner structure and hidden materials of architecture.  Artists Finder and Vera create austere yet seductive compositions - with an expressive use of empty space.  In these works, its the framework and the foundations that are being reset so that we can understand anew, such things as boundaries and place.

This reception is free and open to the public.  Reese Gallery is located in the Cherokee Arts Neighborhood, just off of Antique Row on Wisconsin.  This event is in conjunction with the festivities of St. Louis City of Night.
