Ellen Curlee Gallery: 3 November 2006

Martin Parr’s Fashion Show, November 3---December 2, 2006.
Photographs from his “Fashion magazine”
Opening Reception: Friday November 3 fro 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.Mischievous ironist, self proclaimed populist, true master of the social commentary; Martin Parr turns his satirical wit and ruthless eye on the world of fashion to capture humanity’s vulnerability and all it’s follies. From candid portraits taken in the streets of Dakar and Essex to the highly stylized advertisements shot in Miami Beach and New York, the artist frames these revealing moments with quirky precision and in ultra vivid color. “ Fashion Magazine” was launched in May 2005 for the opening of “La Mode de Martin Parr”, an exhibition of photographs that opened on the same night at the Bon Marche store in Paris and the Rocket Gallery in London.

“Some of the shoots include models, some are people who were cast in the street. Sometimes you cannot tell the difference. Some look like document, some look like fashion, some even look like art. What is exciting is that it is difficult to tell the difference. The traditional boundaries of these worlds are slipping away and I’m enjoying exploring these new fusions.” - MP

The Ellen Curlee Gallery is located at 1308-A Washington Avenue in the Washington Avenue loft district. Hours are 11:00am to 6pm Tuesday-Saturday and 11:00am to 9pm on First Fridays, the first Friday of each month. Tel: (314) 241-1299

SLCC Forest Park: Friday 27 October 2006

You are cordially invited to the opening reception for the solo exhibition of “Chemical Dependents” by Sandra Marchewa Friday, October 27 at the Gallery of Contemporary Art at Forest Park. The exhibition runs from October 23 until November 10.

Chemical Dependents reveals the imaginary natural world of Sandra Marchewa. The exhibition presents a collection of small and medium objets d’art as well as paintings.

Whether in glossy landscapes or water worlds Marchewa creates creatures and plants that are hallucinogenic hybrids. Sometimes these snippets of Marchewa’s mind are dark and ominous; sometimes they are bright and gay. None are minimal. Marchewa’s worlds are always densely populated. She crafts numerous trees, flowers, and plants, rendering them more multi-colored and artificial than real life, and yet more distinctively animated. The scorpions, bees, and bats that float and fly through her work are painted with unnatural patterns and are adorned with beads and glitter, like toys for tots on Day of the Dead.

The reception will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Gallery of Contemporary Art. Refreshments will be served. The gallery, situated in the library building, is at the center of the Forest Park Campus. St. Louis Community College at Forest Park is located at 5600 Oakland.
You may contact the Art Department at 314-644-9350 for further details.

Bruno David: Friday, 13 October 2006

Bruno David Gallery would like to invite you to attend the opening reception for a preview of the exhibition “Magasin” by Daniel Raedeke on Friday October 13 from 6 to 9 pm. The exhibition remains on view through November 11, 2006.

Magasin is the first solo exhibition in St. Louis for Mr. Raedeke since his well-received Always Almost New at Laumeier Sculpture Park in 2004. Raedeke will also be one of five artists included in PERSONAL LOGICS/approaches to the abstract at the White Flag Projects in St. Louis.

Raedeke's work explores the synergy between contemporary art and commercial culture. Combining his remarkable range of skills in painting, design, animation and fabrication, Raedeke painstakingly creates handmade objects from his digital sources. In the latest incarnation of his designs, Raedeke introduces new patterns and textures influenced by natural forms. Raedeke works in a wide array of formats, resulting in a colorful showroom of images and objects realized in both paint and porcelain. Raedeke's tongue-in-cheek slogan is, "painting a better future for you," and Magasin is a wonderfully inventive continuation of his investigations into the ever-expanding possibilities of painting.

Daniel Raedeke lives and works in St. Louis. He received his MFA from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville in 2000. Raedeke has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Chicago and St. Louis.

Ken Worley is showing recent work in the Project Room.

The gallery is located at 3721 Washington Boulevard, in the heart of the Grand Center arts district, directly opposite The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, and in close proximity to the Sheldon Memorial Art Galleries, The Fox Theatre, and Powell Symphony Hall.

Jon Cournoyer and Jacob Lee Cruzen

In America today, cultural moments are consumed before they are realized. After a book is read, a person is heard, a cardboard box used, it can bethrown away and considered junk or trash. Trash is, by definition, an object that is not, or is no longer owned by anyone, and falls outside the categories of style, economics, culture and social control.

For Jake Cruzen, his inspiration arrives from the streets of the underbelly of America. Jakes paintings are created from a wide range of found materials that have little monetary value but bear a wealth of cultural associations.

For Jon Cournoyer his inspiration arrives from cultural generations that he has grown up with that have been used and discarded. Materials relating to American history, folklore, or geography are reoccurring themes in his work.

A common ground for both artists is the recognition of the aesthetic potential and cultural connotations of found objects. Both artists accept the qualities of age and usage and are touched
by the tragedies that are are evident in junk or trash. The artists share the understanding of
displacement and their roles in some how arranging and putting back pieces of a thrown away American culture.

DATES: October 12 through October 26, 2006
OPENING: Thursday, October 12, 4-7 P.M. at Gallery Visio
HOURS11-5 P.M. Monday-Thursday Friday & Saturday-open by appointment only

Gallery Visio is pleased to present, “Energy,” spirited works by Abigail Birhanu and Dail Chambers. This exhibit will display pieces that are hi-energy, telling stories from the artist’s point of view.

Birhanu, a recent graduate from the Bachelor of Fine Arts Program in Art Education at UM-St. Louis, is currently a part-time teacher at St. Charles High School. In her free time, she is involved in a drawing group entitled, “Draw Club”. The group collectively comes together to create figure drawings. Chambers is currently a senior at Memphis Art College in Memphis, Tennessee. She is heavily involved in activism; her contributions include Red Cross, and “Project Hello”, a group that provides services to the homeless.

“Energy” is defined by the American Heritage Dictionary as the “capacity of work or vigorous activity”. Birhanu and Chambers have captured this frenzy energy. Birhanu uses colored wax on black surface to convey light as it penetrations darkness. Chambers often uses family stories as examples to display energy in a different form.
