Mad Art: Friday, 1 June 2007

June 1 to June 30 at Mad Art Gallery
Opening reception June 1, 7 pm to 11 pm

"An Aerial Landscape" new paintings by Julie Malone and
"Sometimes You Just Know" photographs by Justin Visnesky

Julie's paintings are inspired by views and reactions to our environment. Combining color, expression, and structure, Julie expresses spontaneous reactions to common events experienced in our culture. She transforms these experiences into abstractions viewed from her own created aerial perspective.

Justin Visnesky grew up in a village in Pennsylvania, went to college in Jimmy Stewart's hometown of Indiana, Pennsylvania, and now lives kind of close to the Arch in St. Louis, Missouri. He makes photographs of the simple, quiet times in life; taking the ordinary and making it something more, something for the keeping.

Gallery at the Regional Arts Commission: Thursday 31 May 2007

JUST JAZZ: Preserving the jazz syncopations of American culture on THURSDAY, May 31 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at The Gallery at the Regional Arts Commission (RAC). This exhibition is curated by Kenneth Calvert, president of the Zuka Artsa Guild, and features work by eleven local artists. LIVE jazz performance by THF Realty All Star Student Ensemble, courtesy of Jazz St. Louis.

Is jazz alive in St. Louis? Are the Bebop and swing rhythms reduced to a soft whisper over the Mississippi or are St. Louisans still fluent in the raw language of jazz?

Honoring the essence of jazz, the exhibit features paintings, photographs and sculptures by eleven local African-American artists. In step with a fundamental element of this musical genre, improvisation, the art presented is as exhilarating, vibrant and varied as the music to which it pays homage.

This exhibition will run through Sunday, July 8, 2007.

Morton J. May Foundation Gallery: Thursday, 14 June 2007

The Katrina Diaries: An Exhibit by members of the Women's Caucus for Art

The widespread impact of Hurricane Katrina continues during the ongoing aftermath of this disaster. The St. Louis Chapter of the Women's Caucus for Art is proud to announce an exhibit featuring artwork in response to the Katrina experience.

The Katrina Diaries includes work by members of the Louisiana Chapter of the Women's Caucus for Art. These works travel throughout the country to Women's Caucus for Art chapters, where the chapter members create a second line of work in response. The artwork is then displayed together at the Katrina Diaries exhibit.

In addition to the exhibit, at the opening reception, the WCA will be working with Vivavox in a traditional New Orleans style "second line" parade. Vivavox provides art mentoring services to "at risk" youth in order to promote self discovery, positive personal growth, and to impact social change. The parade will include music, dancing, costumes, and colorfully decorated umbrellas made by both WCA members and Vivavox youth. The umbrellas will then be silent auctioned with the proceeds to benefit Vivavox programs.

This exhibit displays an emotional journey of strength, heartache, devastation, and determination. Through the artist's eye, experience the loss of humanity and the efforts to reestablish lives.

The exhibit will be on display at the Morton J. May Foundation Gallery at Maryville University from June 14th- August 3rd. The opening reception is on Thursday, June 14th from 6-8 pm. The Morton J. May Foundation Gallery is located at 650 Maryville University Dr, St. Louis, 63141. Gallery hours are Monday thru Thursday 7:30 am-10 pm, Friday and Saturday 8 am- 6 pm and Sundays 11 am-10 pm

Sean Gyshen: Sewing The Façade

Sewing the Facade will open Thursday, June 7th from 7-10 pm, and will be on view from June 7th-July 1st, 2007. Gallery hours are by appointment only, please call (618) 334-4347 or e-mail us for an appointment.

My work achieves a cultural dialogue by celebrating the transgressive beauty of subversive gendered experiences. They range from literal physical depictions to external manifestations of the internal psychological state. In “Sewing The Façade” I created self-portraits in which I am depicting the physical and emotional aspects of my gender experience while calling attention to (the) effects of traditional ideas of gender. My work is constantly striving to visually articulate an idea and to challenge traditional ways of thinking. The responses to my work range from solidarity to contempt. The most important aspect of these interactions is not that the viewer agrees with what is being offered, but that a discourse is established.

Maps is located at 225 N. Illinois St. in Downtown Belleville, Illinois, just a few blocks West of the
Belleville Town Square. How to get to Maps Contemporary Art Space from St. Louis: Take I-64 East to Hwy 159 South (exit 12) towards Belleville. Maps is approx. 6 miles on the right side of N. Illinois, just before the Belleville Fountain/Town Square, or via Metrolink. From the Belleville Metro stop take the 16 Belleville/St. Clair Square bus line to 225 N. Illinois St.

Paula Lincoln: Constrictions
Friday, May 25th 4-9pm

With Constrictions, I'm trying to achieve a sensation of being overwhelmed by situations out of one's control, a sense of helplessness. The trick is finding the strength to break away the binds that seem to hold fast. There is always a way, but sometimes the solutions seem elusive

Opening Night Reception, Friday, May 18
(Members' Preview Reception: 6:00-7:00 pm, Open bar)
Public Reception: 7:00-9:00 pm, Cash bar

The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis presents Irish artist Katie Holten in her first solo museum exhibition in the United States. Paths of Desire is Holten's largest and most ambitious exhibition to date, featuring a large-scale sculptural installation and drawings that explore global ecology and the importance of advocacy at a time of environmental crisis.

The Contemporary is also proud to welcome Shoot the Family, a traveling exhibition of photography and video works by 15 international artists. Photography is an intimate art, representing an unspoken relationship between artist and subject. This relationship becomes especially interesting--and harrowingly penetrating--when the subject is related to the artist. Shoot the Family explores this dynamic by focusing on artists' portrayals of their own families: photography and video works of relatives and partners.

Philip Slein Gallery: Friday, 11 May 2007

The Philip Slein Gallery will stay open late -until 10pm- on Friday, May 11th, for the opening of Cheryl Wassenaar's Exhibition, RE(AD) and Mel Watkin's show "New Work."

Cheryl Wassenaar: I construct my work from fragments of discarded commercial signage. Scavenged from roadways and the wastelands of commercial sprawl, these wooden signs
are the loud voices of city commerce, crowding our urban landscapes with the insistent messages of industry. The language that appears on signs is direct and economical. I disrupt its efficiency, breaking the text from context and rules of syntax, redirecting attention to the subtle nuances of visual and verbal form. Moving from an earlier interest in the associative properties of typography, my recent work reconsiders the sign as a carrier of failed communication, made
inept through visual stutters, meaningless acronyms, technology glitches, text codes, and verbal filler.

We will be staying open later because of all the wonderful shows going on city-wide. The gallery will be offering a full bar with premium drinks.

Framations Gallery: Saturday, 12 May 2007

Framations Gallery is proud to present two very diverse new exhibits exploring the art of the portrait. There will be an Opening Reception on Saturday, May 12 from 6-9 pm. The reception is free and open to the public. Both will run through June 3, 2007.

Objects of Affection, is an exhibition of still lifes and portraits by artist Lisa Ober. The pieces in this exhibit will be a selection of oil and pastel portraits reminiscent of classical realism as well as a collection of recent still lifes. The range of still lifes explore a certain dry wit where very formal painting is labeled with a more witty, casual title, intended to make the viewer look twice. This exhibit will also feature an audio tour starting at the reception that will explore the work of Lisa Ober.

Behind the Scenes is a study of the people behind the collective camera of the O'Fallon Photography Club. In this exhibit, the participating members have each taken a self-portrait, giving the public a glimpse into the individuality of some of our local amateur and professional photographers. So often their work represents them through other imagery, rather than showing a visual of themselves. This exhibit offers an opportunity to see how a photographer sees themselves through the camera they use to capture others. The exhibit shows diversity in the styles and methods used to capture a self image by use of a camera.

Framations Gallery is located at 218 North Main Street, St. Charles, MO 63301. The gallery is open Tuesday Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 12-5.

Bruno David Gallery: Friday, 25 May 2007

Project Room: BUNNY BURSON: Consequences
New Media Room: CHARLES GICK: Flowers From The Mouth

Opening Reception. Friday, May 25 from 6 to 9 pm (Exhibition: May 25 – June 30, 2007)

Bruno David Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibit ERNEST TROVA: INSINUATIONS in the main gallery, featuring new collage-based prints by St. Louis’ most celebrated artist. The technique of collage is one of modernism’s earliest tools, and INSINUATIONS finds Trova fully immersed in all of its disjointed, comedic potential. The unifying thread in this new body of work are found photographs of meat, reorganized into a world populated by devilish silhouettes of raw beef and greasy sausages, a world where lamb chops enjoy their afternoons on sunny park benches, and where women’s blouses are only as ruffled as the sliced ham from which the artist has constructed them. Trova’s new imagery is at once grave and playful, violently drawing the viewer’s attention to both the beauty and fragility of our corporeal existence.

In the Project Room, St. Louis’ social and political artist Bunny Burson will show her recent work, which focuses on the consequences of the presidential election of 2000. The number of votes separating Bush and Gore in Florida inspired the installation piece, 537, and questions not only the decision by the Bush administration to go to war but whether the semblance of Iraqi elections justifies the bloodshed of the last 4 years. A series of unique prints addresses Sandra Day O’Connor’s active participation in a partisan majority’s decision to halt the Florida vote count, a stain on an otherwise respected legacy.

In the New Media Room, interdisciplinary artist Charles Gick will show his video Flowers From The Mouth. This video is often related to a birthing process simply conveying the expression of fertility. Beyond this interpretation, it represents the messy process of finding fertile ground when verbal communication is rendered infertile. This video serves as a metaphor for the struggle to tap into a dialogue when spoken words and written text and physical gestures, such as touching, fail. This visceral video is the corporal manifestation of the unseen phenomenon that one feels when desperately struggling to produce the missing components to a beautiful, compelling, and meaningful form of communication.

SAVE THE DATE: Please join us for the Grand Gallery Walk through the 12 museums and galleries of the Grand Center Arts & Entertainment District on Friday, May 25. Participants can enjoy a twilight-through-evening stroll while taking in the best of the visual arts at all the venues and in the streets. Musicians and street artists will be performing live throughout the evening. Grand Gallery Walk hours are 4 – 9 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Cathy Breslaw & Kerry Zimmerman - Crossing Paths

May 11 to May 27
Opening reception May 11, 7 pm to 11 pm

A new exhibition featuring Cathy Breslaw and Kerry Zimmerman. Breslaw's work experiments with dissimilar manufactured materials, manipulating them in unfamiliar combinations. Kerry Zimmerman shoots photographs with a Holga camera, producing images that mirror her experiences as a newcomer to St. Louis.

Cathy Breslaw's work experiments with dissimilar manufactured materials, manipulating them in unfamiliar combinations. Traveling as far as Taiwan in search for her materials, Breslaw's pieces reinvent the materials and serve as a metaphor for the perpetual morphing of global culture from the integration of political, religious, social, and economic ideas. Her work includes large-scale wall and floor pieces constructed from plastic mesh. Her pieces fuse aspects of painting, weaving, craft, fashion, and sculpture and explore issues of femininity, beauty, and cross-cultural boundaries. Elements of color, line, texture, and pattern figure prominently producing an end result of an undeniably feminine quality.

Having lived in five cities in the past seventeen years, Kerry Zimmerman uses photography to orient herself physically and mentally. Moving to a city and knowing no one requires Zimmerman to rely on her camera as a means of navigation and bearing. Her current series grew from her 2005 move to St. Louis and has expanded over time. Her images were shot with a Holga, a toy camera producing a limited plane of focus and intense vignetting. These features of the Holga images mirror her own experiences as a newcomer to our city.
