Fort Gondo Compound for the Arts: Friday, 27 February 2009

Friday Feb. 27th, 5-7:30PM

Tara McCarthy combines pop images with color so delicious you'll want to eat her paintings.

Brian Conner starts with photography and then gets all computerized and then adds words in the form of poetry (lots of comments on his work)

Jeff combines his knowledge if woodworking with his lack of knowledge about clay to create small scale sculpture. Jeff is also going to perform at about 6:45 PM

He's trying to raise $ for a trip to Pakistan- he's been invited to Lahore to exhibit, but wants to branch out and work with kids and refugees and IDP's while there. If you can help out- that would be sweet- so bring a buck or two for the collection bucket if you want to help Jeff help others.

Craft Alliance: 6 March 2009

Form and Content: Beyond the Empty Vessel
Michael Bauermeister, Curator
Public Opening Reception - Friday, March 6, 6:00-8:00pm
When: March 6 – April 19, 2009

Craft Alliance presents Form and Content: Beyond the Empty Vessel, an exhibition that explores the transformation from turned wood vessels to sculptural statements. Curator and local artist, Michael Bauermeister, brings together five contemporary wood artists from across the country. Form and Content will be on display March 6 – April 19, 2009. The public opening reception is Friday, March 6, 6:00-8:00 pm in the National Exhibition Gallery at Craft Alliance in the Delmar Loop, a nonprofit art center.

“The works chosen for Form and Content: Beyond the Empty Vessel are intended to help illustrate the recent progression of my work from lathe based vessel or bowl forms to more sculptural work done off the lathe, primarily with a chainsaw,” states artist Mark Gardner. “I’ve always felt the way I create effects the content of the work and with the recent discovery of working ‘off the lathe’ I’ve opened a new door for myself to say something new.”

Artists include Michael Bauermeister, Augusta, MO; Dixie Biggs, Gainesville, FL; David Ellsworth, Allenspark, CO; Mark Gardner, Saluda, NC; George Peterson, Lake Toxaway, NC.

Opening concurrently in the David and Jacqueline Charak Gallery, Craft Alliance presents New Work by Randy Carlson. Randy Carlson’s work represents his specific approach to surface development within the ceramic process. Carlson currently teaches at ceramics at Bradley University in Peoria, IL.

Mad Art Gallery: Friday, 6 March 2009

Mad Art Gallery proudly presents the Mad March Show featuring work by Michael Baird and Jeff Brawn. This exhibit opens on Friday, March 6, 2009, and runs through March 30, 2009. Please join us for a free opening reception on Friday, March 6, 2009, from 7:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.

Michael Baird's work alludes to a story without specifying that story. He wants the viewers to be free to follow their imagination and create their own explanations for what they are seeing. What the viewer is seeing is one of Baird's flesh dolls, odd and alluring, these little creatures are creepy balls of flesh with eyes that imply their moods. Baird's flesh dolls are constructed in a fashion similar to that of a traditional teddy bear, but Baird uses sheep skin, black string, polyester fiber fill, and taxidermy eyes to create his creatures. Though Baird's work is typically about the aesthetic, the aesthetics of advertising and mass marketing, he gravitates to themes of science fiction. "Since I was a child I have been fascinated with monsters and fantastic creatures."

Jeff Brawn is a storyteller. Brawn's story picks the medium. Sometimes the medium is a novel. Other times it is a painting, watercolor on paper, acrylic, weathered copper and rusted metal on wood. According to Brawn, "Paintings can be more like poetry, full of metaphors and mood, or they can be a glimpse into a larger story." Despite this wide range of mediums, Brawn's work exhibits reoccurring themes, characters, and techniques. Brawn's paintings feature a warm palette and give the viewer a feeling of movement. Often Brawn's subject is a young woman or girl who is strong and ethereal. Brawn wants the audience to finish his stories. "Storytelling begins with the storyteller's imagination and ends with the someone else's. That communion is what it's all about."

Marbles Gallery: Saturday, 7 March 2009

Marbles Gallery exhibits pieces, mosaics and paintings by Benji Rowan through March 31st. Also, exhibiting "'third eye" by abstract painter Timothy E. Wagner.

Opening Reception: Saturday, March 7 from 6-9 p.m.
Meet the artist and enjoy a glass of wine
Free and open to the public

Mosaicist and painter Benji Rowan tells stories through visual cues in the images he makes. Shapes, colors, and figures come together to produce two dimensional narratives. His mosaics are decorated stories…stoories that leave plenty of room for interpretation. Even when the only information is color and shape, he gives clues through the titles of a work to explain the situations. His paintings, while more representational, allow each viewer to draw their own conclusions. His work can be thought of as stills from a motion picture – what came before, or will come afteer, is for you to decide.

Abstract painter Timothy E. Wagner illuminates the world of our natural and urban surroundings inspired by form, atmospheric space and color. Wagner develops a specific visual language that defines subject matter and content. The paintings evolve in layers that vary from thin transparencies to thick gestural forms to combine in an expression of his thought process and experience. Every layer of paint, every mark on the picture-plane becomes a crucial meaning of its history and the eventual resolution of the statement.

Open Mondays 1-3 p.m. Call 314.621.4744 to confirm additional hours or for an appointment.

Bruno David Gallery:

Opening Reception: Friday, March 6, from 6 to 9 pm
MARCH 6 – APRIL 4, 2009
Wed – Sat 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

“Damon Freed: Calm, Cool , Coherent” Damon Freed’s work investigates the relationship between soft and hard edges, and an ordered way of seeing shape and form. Taoists referred to this way of thinking as “perception of the nature of things; soft and weak overcoming hard and strong.” Those who concentrate on the hard edges are attracted to strength. Those who concentrate on the soft centers are attracted to weakness. To perceive the soft, one must overcome the hard. The hard edge functions as an obstacle and the soft brushwork a void.

In the Project Room, photographer Larry Torno is presenting a new series of photographs titled “When is a Doll not a Doll?” The series began during the summer of 2007 when Torno was offered the opportunity to photograph an extensive collection of a vintage American toy: the renowned Barbie Doll. By experimenting with composition and light, the artist infuses “personalities” into otherwise lifeless plastic, and the photos of the famous figure evolve from simple documentation to a kind of portraiture. His photographs are enhanced by Barbie’s breadth of genre and depth of style, as there is always another posh model waiting for her close-up. Through these vivid images of the timeless figure, Torno liberates Barbie from her box and places her again into the realm of the imagination. The exhibition corresponds with the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Barbie Doll. Barbie, created by Mattel co-founder Ruth Handler, was unveiled at the American Toy Fair in New York on March 9, 1959.

In the Front Room, Mario Trejo is presenting a new series of works, titled “Catharsis”, which visually explore macro and microcosmic struggle through manic mark-making. The hundreds of thousands of marks create illusion of an emerging form, exhibiting the artist’s conscious and sensitive attention to both detail and entirety. The drawings begin to expose small universes, each a relic of the arduous performance of repeated gestures.

In the Media Room, celebrated filmmaker Tiffany Shlain presents an 18-minutes short film
titled “The Tribe.” This unorthodox film, an unauthorized history of the Jewish people, and the Barbie Doll all focus on a fact about Barbie – that she was the creation of Ruth Handel, a Jewish-American woman – and turns it into a powerful metaphor about assimilation and Jewish identity in the 21st Century – both in America and abroad.

Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 20 February 2009

Friday, February 20th from 5-8pm

Jed Jackson - New Work: Paintings
Jed Jackson's beautifully rendered landscapes and figurative oil paintings embody realism with a distinctive twist. Gleaning inspiration from fashion magazines, movies, literature and a plethora of other twentieth century cultural sources, Jackson incorporates these images and ideas with a keen sense of color to create paintings that are simultaneously rich in content and aesthetically dynamic.

Mark Douglas: Photography
Mark Douglas' current body of work explores form using books as subject matter. Photography does several things by default. The first of which, is the presentation of evidence or the creation of documents. Through this documentary nature, photography carries a weight of truth for the viewer, much as the written word. The books are presented on edge, recorded in a contorted state, in an ambiguous space. Thus the 'truth', the evidence that Douglas creates, is left open to interpretation by the viewer. These abstracted tomes are not intended to be narrative; rather they are, "about photography presenting an absolute, evidentiary truth, and simultaneously no truth at all. They are about levels of interpretation and understanding and about information revealed, and information concealed."

Deb Douglas: Painting, Works on Paper
Deb Douglas' paintings explore pattern and color relationships through imagery from pop culture, ads, art history, landscape and various flora and fauna. Using a common vocabulary of images from society's collective past, her unique juxtapositions of pop images with various marks or patterns transform the iconography into reflections of the present. "Combining these elements with various stylistic tendencies creates a personal narrative that allows me to explore my own experiences on a conceptual basis while working within the construct of formalism. This dichotomy is at the heart of all the art I make. Images are derived from high and low art, from my knowledge of art history, from popular culture and from objects and ideas close to me."

Funhouse: Selected Photographs by Byron Kerman

Shopping in the grocery store is about as normal as it gets. But if you place a gallon jug of cheap vodka, a box of diapers, a copy of “Lowrider” magazine, and a pineapple into your cart, shopping becomes a funny and somewhat frightening photo op.

It’s not hard to see what’s normal as funny and frightening. Sometimes it’s looking right at you, begging to have its picture taken, like a blue toilet left by the side of the road, dignified and embarrassing all at once. Sometimes it needs a little help, like a Minnie Mouse doll who’s so sweet and innocent she clearly wants to be defiled and photographed. Other times it’s not what it appears to be, like the forgotten bleachers behind the high school, which say more in the haunt of neglect than they ever could in use.

Creepy and funny, funny and creepy. You see, they were there all along.

Hours: Monday - Saturday 10am ­ 4pm or by appointment.

The Cecille R. Hunt Gallery presents recent work by South Korean based artist Fi Jae Lee. Lee uses sculpture to give physical incarnation to what she describes as “the unbreakable and fundamental energy, which established and maintains the world -- ­our selfish desires.” Using soft materials, collage, performance and installation, Lee enters a strange realm that references both religion and mysticism. Through stuffed grotesque, surrealistic creatures perched on office furniture and pools of red wine as centerpiece to mad celebration, she actively invites the viewer inside her world of strange ritual and an embodiment of her personal belief systems.

Flax Gallery, accelerating women in the arts: “Bad Housekeeping” Flax Gallery Director/Juror: Jenn Carter. Bad Housekeeping is an all media, juried exhibition of artwork, created by female artists. All work contains a household them, or incorporates found objects from around the home. The show is fun, bright, unexpected, intriguing, and often times hilarious.

Gallery 2­Solo Series: “New Works by Brittany Lueken” Brittany Lueken's exhibition includes an impressive diversity in style for a body of work completed so recently, although it is 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. Especially interesting is a set of small black canvases that appear to be a collection of images from another universe. Quiet all around but massive and complex at or above the surface, Lueken's planets are even more mysterious than those beyond.

123 Money - I heard there was something else
Artwork by Eric Gray
Presented by City Art Supply

City Art Supply's new show, 1 2 3 Money - I heard there was something else, brings together paintings, works on paper, and site specific work from Eric Gray. The title of the show refers to both the writing on one of the paintings and is a gesture toward "something else". What is the "something else" according to Gray? It could be family, a peaceful landscape, or it could be looking at the faces of businessmen from Wall Street as though they are human. The "something else" is taking a closer look. Maybe it's in the texture and the thick paint. It quite possibly is just art, as Gray's work seems very much a celebration of the act of painting, of the smudge of charcoal, of marks made and marks erased, and of the process. Half art supply store and half gallery, City Art Supply presents Gray's art in an appropriate setting with its opening Friday, February 6th. Eric His work can be viewed online at

Artist Reception
Friday February 6th 6pm-9pm
exhibits You are Where... paintings by Jeremy Rabus

Jeremy Rabus uses a purely improvised visual call-and-response process as he works. Dribbled paint, translucent glazes, and organic flourishes oppose, embrace, and traverse one another, often against geometric structures. The imagery, ultimately orchestrated from layered visual elements, generates what amounts to a collective, purely psychic landscape described as muted chromatic, conceptual, and emotional extremes.
