Hoffman LaChance: Friday, 5 October 2007

The End, Middle and Beginning is a series of unique collages, screen printed,painted by Jon Cournoyer. The works incorporate photographs, postcards,and book cover pages collected in abandoned buildings, allies, flea markets in Europe, Mexico, and at small town swap meets across the United States.He is drawn to utopian projects from space flight to rock opera, and to the demons of nineteenth-century fairy tales. Fantasies and fears of childhood are recurring themes in his work, as is the patina acquired by things that are outmoded and discarded. The first stage of Jons work, he considers a process akin to automatic writing, in that he begins with found imagery to tap into unconscious associations. A collage is then developed exploring a theme. Separate drawings are made to begin directing a narrative. These drawings become screen prints which are in turn applied on top of the collage. For example, The Dream (2007) incorporates a cartoon owl, a photograph of a winter landscape, drawings of halucinagenic patterns, and a fragment from an early twentieth-century advertising which highlights the elements of play and chance in the work. Superimposed on the collage is the image of a man awakening from a dream.

Boots Contemporary Art Space: Friday, 28 September 2007

Dylan Mortimer: Amen Bitch Sept. 28 - Oct. 28

Opening reception: Friday, September 28 from 6:30 - 10pm
Exhibition on view Saturdays 10-5 and Sundays 12-5 until October 28.
For other times please contact Boots for an appointment.

This body of work, by Kansas City artist Dylan Mortimer, explores the space between the sacred and profane. By combining elements of Christianity with Hip Hop culture, the work explores the relation of seemingly opposite things. Holy texts have often been originally
translated into "lower" class language structures in order to give access to the masses (koine Greek, vulgate Latin, etc.). This show asks: if the concepts of the bible were heard on the street today, how might they sound? Is it possible that language often categorized as profane and vulgar may cut more directly to the heart of Biblical concepts? Is it possible that the contemporary church has much to learn from Hip Hop culture? This show aims to find a balance between the secular and the sacred, between propaganda and censorship, between sincerity and sarcasm, in order to find a contemporary
expression of an exploration that has been going on for thousands of years.

Hunt Gallery: Friday, 12 October 2007

W. C. Richardson
October 12 - November 9, 2007
Opening Reception: Friday, October 12, 2007, 6 - 8pm

The Cecille R. Hunt Gallery is pleased to present recent work by Washington D.C. based artist W.C. Richardson. An associate professor of painting and drawing in the Department of Art at the University of Maryland-College Park, Richardson's recent work presents an intersection of layered systems, seeking an intricate unity established through the act of painting and inviting an active engagement with his volatile color and figure-ground relationships. His oil and alkyd canvases explore predetermined geometric structures that interact with free-drawn forms, and harmonious systems of paint are influenced by both science and politics. Intentionally subverting our need for a "cause and effect" relationship, Richardson pushes his formal schemes as he moves from what he describes as "a mechanistic order to an imaginative one" as the successive layers flip and reconfigure in a boundless space. Using inundated color palettes and growing patterns he shifts our perception, playing with asymmetry by covering and interlocking large and small-scale shapes, the viewer is left to decipher between inside and outside, foreground and background. Simultaneously concrete and permeable, the intersection of these passages create a visual puzzle highlighting the underlying structure, where, complexity and energy are defined and weakened by layers of opposing grounds. Richardson's paintings
investigate the non-hierarchical association between his systems, ultimately to discover that they appear to be both independent and symbiotic.

Laumeier Sculpture Park: Saturday, 6 October 2007

Tony Tasset exhibition opens October 6, 2007 at Laumeier Sculpture Park

St. Louis, MO (September 21, 2007) – On October 6, 2007, Laumeier Sculpture Park, as part of the institution’s 30th anniversary celebration, will present an important solo museum exhibition by internationally-recognized artist Tony Tasset. All Things Must Pass will fill Laumeier’s indoor galleries and extend to our outdoor galleries with a new, commissioned, monumental outdoor sculpture. The exhibition, the first to showcase Tasset’s work in St. Louis, will include selected works from the past decade, recent work and new work. A broad range of media typical of Tasset’s practice – video, photography and a variety of approaches to sculpture will be featured.

Tasset frequently uses his environment, his family and himself as subject and inspiration. His work, employing wisdom and wit, continuously contends with the trappings of modernism, postmodern theory, pop culture, and the universal human emotions associated with love, loss, frailty and beauty. In recent work he has turned to the dual nature of his own existence – an urban artist/public figure as well as a suburban-father-with-garden. Using this deeply personal source material, he creates objects and images that are at once ironic, earnest, and decidedly humanistic. Tasset describes his work as an exploration of the “conflicts of the ego and the difficulty in expressing certain sentiments in a postmodern environment where truth is relative, and in a culture of consumption where emotion is a commodity.”

Tony Tasset’s exhibition will open Saturday, October 6, 2007 with a public reception from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and continue through January 13, 2008. An artist’s talk will take place at 6:00 p.m., Thursday, October 3 at White Flag Projects, 4568 Manchester Avenue in St. Louis. The outdoor commission will be at Laumeier for a minimum of one year. An exhibition catalog will be published as well.

Laumeier Sculpture Park is located at 12580 Rott Road in Sunset Hills, near Interstate 44 and Lindbergh Boulevard. The park is open daily from 8 a.m. until ½ hour past sunset. The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m. For more information, call 314-821-1209 or visit us at

Philip Slein Gallery: Friday, 14 September 2007

A Post-Modern Peep Show at the Philip Slein Gallery

The land inhibited by Michael Krueger’s characters is a kind of Westworld; Lisa Bulawsky calls the place her characters inhabit Shiftland; Don Colley identifies the place inhabited by his characters as Coulrotopia. All three provide metaphors for the post-modern.

The root of the Post-Modern can be traced back to at least the First World War when the French linguist and father of Structuralism, Ferdinand de Saussure, precipitated an intellectual crisis by explaining how language undermines itself. Lacan said, “The slightest alteration in the relation between man and the signifier changes the whole course of history … by modifying the lines which anchor his being.” The land underneath our feet is undermined --it drifts, it shifts like a clown trying to walk after being hit on the head with a giant hammer. It is an ongoing comic apocalypse, characterized by ridiculous costuming and misguided optimism.

Krueger, Bulawsky, and Colley are the printmakers whose job it is to depict the characters who inhabit this unsettling new world.

Friday, Sept. 14th 2007, Reception 6-9pm and runs through Oct. 6th
Tues.-Sat. 11am-4pm
Free and open to the public

Free exhibition catalog available. Please join us for a curator's talk on Saturday, September 15, 2:30pm at Craft Alliance.

Opening concurrently, local fiber artist Edna J. Patterson-Petty in the David and Jacqueline Charak Gallery.

September 14 - October 3, 2007
Opening Reception Friday, September 14, 2007, 8pm -midnight
Wed. - Sat. 12- 5p

Hoffman LaChance invites you to join us, Friday September 14th, for our first opening of the 2007-2008 gallery season, Character Development. This exhibition features the work of four emerging artists, working and creating, locally - Benjie Heu, Dani Kranowitz, Alex Petrowsky and Peter Pranshke. Curated by Cole Root. Music by Eric Hall.

Character Development is an exhibition of drawing,painting and sculpture, all imbued with a darkly whimsical, cartoonish nature. These self narratives deceive the viewer at first with their depictions of seemingly cute and vulnerable characters. Darker underlying themes of disease, religion, sexuality and war, are soon exposed. Reminiscent of the art of Henry Darger, Edward Gorey and Yoshimoto Nara, the art of Character Development addresses the subversive juxtaposition of innocence and evil.

Wines and hors d'oeuvres provided by Sashas. Spirits donated by Schlafly. Exhibition runs September 14th through October 3rd. Open Wednesday to Saturday from 12pm to 5pm.

Terrell Carter :New Work

In the solo exhibition, "New Work," Terrell Carter will be exploring the power of the figure with the use of color and geometric shapes in the tradition of the Bay Area Figurative artists. Terrell uses house paint and primer to build up the surfaces of plywood boards, which he uses instead of traditional canvas. He intentionally applies thick swaths of color with Oil Sticks and Oil Pastel and then uses his fingers, sticks, and knives to manipulate the surfaces of his images, instead of using a brush. By doing this, the creation process remains personal and "hands on." His work will explore themes of fatherhood and family.

Absent: Peter Gifford
Barbed: Agnes Pal
Collected: Rachel Hayes, Courtney Henson, Christine Holtz

OPENING RECEPTION Thursday, September 13, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

This exhibit looks at the ways that works of art convey that most ephemeral aspect of our lives and identity - our memories. Peter Gifford's photographs of "non-places" such as highways, parking garages, and city parks speak about the gaps in our memory of a place. Agnes Pal's metal sculptures evoke her own childhood experiences in a German concentration camp in 1944. Sculptures by Courtney Henson and Christine Holtz are the residual artifacts of their collections and examinations of consumer culture, while Rachel Hayes's drawings visualize the many layers that combine to create and
obscure our childhood memories. Exhibit continues through October 26.

Publisher Spotlight: Mixographia

William Shearburn Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of contemporary prints published by Mixographia Workshop in Los Angeles, CA. The exhibition includes works by John Baldessari, Donald Sultan, Ed Ruscha, Mimmo Paladino, Tom Wesselmann, Terry Winters, and Jorge Pardo.

Mixografia produces and publishes handmade paper prints, multiples and sculptures in all media that expand the language of traditional editions by allowing the artist greater choice. The Mixografia technique is a flexible medium that permits the artist to transfer characteristics of the painting,bas-relief or assemblage onto paper without completely abandoning the graphic feeling.

The Philadelphia Wireman sculptures were found abandoned on a side street in Philadelphia on trash night in 1982. These sculptures-all intricately bound together with tightly-wound heavy-gauge wire-include a wide variety of found objects, including bits of plastic, glass, leather, batteries, eyeglasses, food packaging, umbrella parts, nails, aluminum foil, and children's toys. Over a thousand of these small-scale sculptures were discovered at once and while it is presumed that these works must have been discarded upon their maker's death, the Philadelphia Wireman's name, age, ethnicity, and even gender remain uncertain. Over 20 sculptures will be included in this exhibition.
