Gallery 210: Thursday, 31 July 2008

“Shaw Spring 5” by Olivia Lahs-Gonzales
"Exposure 11" will feature photography, video art, digital prints and mixed media sculptures by Olivia Lahs-Gonzales, Andrew Millner and Snail Scott.

The "Exposure" series is a long-running program created by the St. Louis Gallery Association, and previously presented in the Hunt Gallery at Webster University in Webster Groves, Mo. The University of Missouri-St. Louis' Gallery 210 now runs the program, and "Exposure 11" will be the fifth exhibition in the series housed at the gallery.

The curatorial process for "Exposure" has taken many forms over the years, from invitational to competition. But the overall goal remains the same, which is to present new and challenging work by local artists, said Gallery 210 Director Terry Suhre.

A public reception will begin at 5:30 p.m. July 31 in Gallery A. Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. On view July 31 through Sept. 20.

Marianist Galleries: Friday, 22 August 2008

August 22 – September 13, 2008 (at Marianist Galleries in Kirkwood)
Opening Reception – August 22, 6 to 9 p.m., 1256 Maryhurst Dr.

You’ve seen his art, whether you know it or not—sometimes whimsical, sometimes religious works full of color and creative form—all over the region and beyond. Whether hinting of heaven through crosses and Madonnas or capturing basic icons like chairs, pencils, tables, bowls and such through abstract means, Brother Mel Meyer, S.M., is a master at making art come alive. For 40 years, he’s quietly and humbly produced some 8,000 pieces, employing all kinds of media—watercolor, oil, acrylic, metal, handmade paper, sculpture, fresco and more. Tucked away in chapels, such as at St. John Vianney High School (next to his gallery) and Jesuit Hall at St. Louis University, or placed openly in the public, such as the three stacked chairs sculpture in Downtown Kirkwood and the Korean War Memorial in Forest Park, Brother Mel’s work is representative of a vibrant artist, ever striving to show life in novel ways.

This year, the masterful Marianist (Bro. Mel belongs to the Marianist, or Society of Mary, Catholic religious order) celebrates some significant events: he’s been an artist at Marianist Galleries for 40 years; he’s been a religious brother for 60 years, and he turned 80 in June.

Marbles Gallery: Saturday, 12 July 2008

Marbles Gallery exhibits ILLUMINE, mixed media abstract paintings by Brittany Lueken

Opening Reception Saturday, July 12, 2008 from 6-9 p.m.

Lueken's exhibition includes an impressive diversity in style, while obvious these are works of one mind. The lush colors coupled with intricate detail or drawing often suggest otherworldly settings. Her artworks include large, lively-colored canvases, delicate black and white drawings, and small collages using gauche and the remnants of an Indian calendar. A set of small, black canvases appear to be a collection of images from another universe. Quiet all around yet massive and complex at or above the surface, Lueken's planets are even more mysterious than those beyond the telescope.

Exhibiting July 1-31. Open Friday and Saturday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and Mondays 1-3 p.m. Call 314.621.4744 to confirm additional hours or for an appointment
