Good Citizen Gallery: Friday, 12 June 2009

Khara Koffel: later rather than sooner
June 12 - 27, 2009
Opening Reception: Friday, June 12 6pm - 10pm

Koffel pulls inspiration from personal stories, anecdotes, and memories creating installations using specific objects related to her past and present. These installations have included portraits of family members out of such diverse materials as paperclips, eggshells, and cocktail umbrellas. For Koffel, these materials carry a specific relevance to her own stories but remain approachable to a wide range of viewers.

Koffel’s work speaks to the power of seemingly banal objects to spark a memory, recall an emotion, and tell a story. Her care and handling of these materials allow them to become aesthetically pleasing arrangements that invite the viewer into unique shared experiences.

YVETTE DRURY DUBINSKY, Dividing Time: NewWork on Paper
Opening Reception: Thursday,May 14, from 6 to 9 pm
MAY 14 – JUNE 27, 2009
Wed – Sat 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Project Room -- Frank Roth: Narrative Patterns
Media Room-- Van McElwee: Alternity

On view from May 14 to June 27, 2009, the show will be of two separate but related bodies of the artist’s last two years work: Large chromogenic prints of organic forms and one of a kind, layered, collaged, monoprints and drawings. The most recent and very large chromogenic prints show a continued fascination with the lines, textures and colors found in natural forms. By enlarging, isolating and enhancing what there is to see in common and less common vegetables and fruits, Yvette Drury Dubinsky shows in a simple way why artists and designers throughout time have used the natural world as inspiration for making art whether it is abstract or representational, sculptural or two-dimensional. These vegetables and fruits are pulled from their natural setting, cut, opened, rearranged and enlarged to reveal more than is usually observed about their amazing nature. Though the artist does some placing, cutting and cropping, the forms have a life of their own. They spill open and their insides fall out, uncontrolled by anyone. The multi-layer monoprints and drawings also begin as very organic and are meditations on lines, textures and forms. The first layers, seemingly random shapes, bring to mind beautiful, colorful and moving cells, or galaxies. They appear uncomplicated, wild and abstract until upon further examination one observes machines and words mixed in with the more non-objective, simply sensual marks. The prints have a political and social concern within their layers, as well as a general feel that mimics both a chaotic internal state and the current tumult in our economic and political world. As Henri Matisse stated it, producing art involves “a restructuring of time and space, a penetration into Reality itself”. Dubinsky’s work is an illustration of that rearranging of time, an insight into an internal reality that resonates with our current socio-economic situation.

In the Project Room, photographer Frank Roth presents a new series of photographs titled “Narrative Patterns.” The series began several years ago when Roth decided to lay claim to a personal art form and returned to photography. Influenced greatly by Edward Hopper, Roth explores the creation of photographic images that look at ordinary scenes and presents them as a
narrative image that reduces the illusion of three-dimensional perspective and respects the flat surface of the picture plane. Using a variety of small cameras, Roth achieves this flatness by taking pictures from a great distance whenever possible. Roth shoots images as he sees them in existing light, regardless of the time of day, in order to fully capture the mood. The images are then carefully cropped to arrive at the final statement, which suggests an abstract, random pattern and forces the viewer to question whether there is more to see beyond the long, narrow glimpses of quotidian life that Roth gracefully presents.

In the Media Room, video artist Van McElwee presents a single channel video titled “Alternity: A Figure in Manifold Space.” This 6:48 minute video created in 2008 expands the vanishing point of linear perspective into a plane, allowing all potential events at that point to mingle freely on the surface of the screen. Figures and sounds merge, blend, shift, and flow
through one another in time and space, creating what McElwee calls a “sponge-space of possibilities.” McElwee creates non-narrative videos that combine images extracted from the real world with textured music, and culminate in the viewer’s experience and interpretation of the piece. McElwee explains: “I find inspiration in noise, in nature, in fake things, in ruins and construction sites, in overlapping sounds, and in concepts that I barely understand. I've always been preoccupied with form, not as opposed to content, but in relation to formlessness, an idea I owe to the East.”

Norton's Fine Art and Framing: Friday, 1 May 2009

May 1st Opening at 6 p.m.

Glenda Hares works in an impressionistic style that is instantly likable – not too realistic, not too abstract. There is just enough definition here without confining the viewer's imagination and sensual experience of the work. The most outstanding element here is Hares' splendid use of color. This is vibrant, yet softly saturated color. Pastels predominate, but they are never sugary, retaining a vivid richness that is actually quite masterful. Acrylic paint often shows as artificial and synthetic. The acrylic paintings in this exhibit, however, resound with a naturalness that is pleasing and surprising.

Snowflake/Citystock: Saturday, 2 May 2009

Gary Passanise Diary of Consequence: Works on paper and mixed media constructions

Opening Reception Saturday May 2, 7-10pm

The work selected for the Snowflake exhibit chronicles a significant chapter of my life.

After twenty-two years I closed my New York workspace in March of 2009. Shipping and storing paintings, sculpture, works on paper, books and a variety of collections that became in a sense a diary of work, of life, of time.

As some diaries are written and kept private, these are re-configured as objects. Concealing, or with direct nuance revealing a content of ebb and flow.

What can be read from the constructed diaries is a logic of skewed observations and twisted irony. Relationships made from scrap and literature link pathways short and long, near and distant.

The works on paper range in date from 1989, a selection from the late summer of 2008 and works completed in the last days of April 2009.

Presented is a continuing dialogue of drawing and constructions as the conceptual observation of all possibilities.

"The Way I See It" Opening for Final Peek, Sunday, April 26 from 3-5 p.m.
Meet the artist
Free and open to the public

Robert `Ferd' Frank, a St. Louis area self-taught artist and former bass player with Johnny Cougar (Mellencamp), has been shooting photographs and painting for nine years. As an art photographer and painter, Ferd strives to show beauty in the common things we see everyday. Much of his work depicts old and abandoned structures, bridges, water, and the unique character of common everyday people. His painting techniques were developed by painting art cars. His photography began with the introduction of the digital age that evolved by 2005 into an obsession with the camera. Ferd's early years as an artist were focused mainly on music. While playing trumpet during high school, his interests were captured by rock and roll after the English invasion of the Stones and Beatles. He played with a local band, the Aerovons, recording an album at Abbey Road in 1969. In the mid 70's, Ferd joined Johnny Cougar to record four albums as his bass player. Today, he feels fortunate to be sur rounded and influenced by many talented local artists.

Mad Art Gallery: Friday, 8 May 2009


Mad Art Gallery proudly presents Personal Narratives work by Teri Moore and Erin Rivers.

Teri Moore works in a variety of mediums, often reusing material, giving it a new life. Moore describes her work as material and concept. Moore uses unusual material in unusual juxtapositions to support a concept. Staples and string are the framework of Moore's drawings and paintings. The random application of the staples from behind the painting surface controls the application of the string, causing Moore to relinquish some control over how the images appear.

Erin Rivers can recall few details of the automobile accident that nearly took her life. Using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans as raw material, Rivers constructed an internal self portrait, which later evolved into a narrative that attempts to fills the gaps between the facts she knows and the unknown that she cannot recall.

This exhibit opens on Friday, May 8, 2009, and continues through May 31, 2009. Please join us for a free opening reception on Friday, May 8, 2009, from 7:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.

Please join us for a free opening reception on Friday, May 1, 2009, from 7:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.

Mad Art Gallery: Friday, 24 April 2009

FRIDAY, APRIL 24 7:00 TO 11:00

This Friday, the first of two MFA thesis exhibitions opens. Molly Douglass’ sculptures push the boundaries of wearability. Inspired by dichotomies that inherently arise from the human existence, her pieces are extensions of the self, their physical characteristics lie somewhere between the fantastic and the real.

Jessica May’s work deals with levels of separation between people and nature. Blending the remains of animals with man-made materials such as glass, wood, and fabric, her work focuses on the separation she sees between people and nature while also exploring her own feelings of disconnect. Her pieces combined forsaken animal remains with luxurious materials to confront traditional expectations. Her work is about honoring the animal, and life in general, by spending time considering them in ways that have usually been reserved only for beautiful things. Juxtaposing dead roadkill with more traditional art materials, May challenges the viewers to question their concepts of beauty.

Please join us for a free opening reception on Friday, April 25, 2008, from 7:00 p.m. until 11:00 p.m.

Craig Norton: Shot and Killed
May 15 - June 21, 2009

Craig Norton makes work of remarkable directness. His ideas arrive channeled through his incredibly fine skills as a draftsman. Amazingly, he uses only a 29 cent Bic pen as a drawing implement to draw photorealistic faces with a stippling technique. Hundreds of thousands of dots give the faces realism and depth. Wallpaper collages build the clothes of the figures. Most recently, Norton's pieces have consisted of large-scale vignettes involving dozens of figures per scene.

Rowhouse Gallery: Friday, 17 April 2009

Friday, April 17th, 2009, 5:00 - 9:30PM

Two artists cast their eyes toward a common concept. Henneman, a prominent American Abstract Expressionist, and D'Sousa, an expert in the realism of the Old World, collaborate in this exceptional exhibit. This new presentation of their work conveys both aesthetics and the emotional abyss from which they are taking off. Their exploration ultimately leads us into their rhapsodic landscapes, both separately and collectively.

The blackfield as a point of departure is represented by a blank canvas, an empty dark stage in which they are one with the audience in anticipation of what will happen. A space that beckons for raw emotion and thereby serves as a type of chalkboard verbalizing their sensations formed by the world around them. They take us into a space of silence, isolation, and even chaos. Yet all the while, a world full of possibilities to approach signs of light, a journey through the past with a destination of the future. The artists are keenly aware of living in the present global transition. They are participants, and it unquestionably impacts their work.

WHITE FLAG PROJECTS presents STEVE POWERS/2 Fists of Iron and a Bottle of Beer


Steve Powers is an artist whose distinctly graphic style, sharp wit, and sensitivity to vernacular language have placed him among the leading artists to emerge from the graffiti and street-art subculture over the past decade.

For 2 Fists of Iron and a Bottle of Beer Steve Powers plans to combine an installation of his paintings with the environment of a drive-through wedding chapel and a custom car graphics shop. Leading up to the exhibition Powers will apply his cut-vinyl slogans and narratives to volunteers' automobiles in a makeshift workshop within the gallery.

Working alongside Powers for his White Flag Projects exhibition will be legendary cartoonist Justin Green.

Craft Alliance Presents RE/ACTION(S)
Gail M. Brown, curator
Opening Reception Friday, May 1, 6:00-8:00pm
May 1 - June 28, 2009

Craft Alliance presents RE/ACTION(S), an exhibition of diverse works of layered ideas and unexpected forms that reflect on current social, political, personal and environmental matters. The works are exquisitely well-crafted by a daring group of emerging artists who demonstrate media exploration and acknowledge the wealth contemporary craft, creating new definitions and parameters. RE/ACTION(S), curated by Gail M. Brown, will be on display May 1-June 28, 2009.

There are 35 artists in this exhibition including Jessica Calderwood who explains that her “most recent series consists of psychological portraits that address ideas of eating, consuming, and personal obsession within the context of traditional dinnerware forms. I view the dinner platter as emblematic of our culture’s obsession with consumption as a whole. This series deals with issues of political, social and, personal importance. My hope is that the work will create opportunities for examination, contemplation, and change.” In this exhibition you will see traditional craft materials of wood, clay, silver and silk combined with the unusual elements such as resin, wool felt, steel, plastic, human hair, rubber and concrete. The artists challenge the viewer to be surprised and open to the unexpected.

Gail M. Brown is an independent curator focusing on exhibitions which share exceptional work from a national body of mature and mid-career artists and potent ideas and forms by younger makers.

Exhibiting concurrently in the Charak Gallery, Cathy Barancik :Internal Landscapes. Ms. Barancik uses found objects combined with metal, wood and other materials in her sculptures that address women's issues.

Marbles Yoga Studio and Gallery: Friday, 3 April 2009

Robert ‘Ferd’ Frank, a former member of the Johnny Cougar (Mellencamp) band, has been shooting photographs and painting for nine years. As an art photographer and painter, Ferd strives to show beauty in the common things we see everyday. Much of his work depicts old and abandoned structures, bridges, water, and the unique character of common everyday people. His painting techniques were developed by painting art cars. His photography began with the introduction of the digital age that evolved by 2005 into an obsession with the camera. Art reception from 6-9pm
