Good Citizen Gallery: Friday, 11 March 2011

Cameron Fuller & Travis Russell: Saturday The Birds Fell From The Sky
Opening Reception Friday, March 11 6-10pm
March 11 - April 9, 2011

The collaborative work of Cameron Fuller and Travis Russell will be featured in an upcoming exhibition at Good Citizen Gallery titled Saturday The Birds Fell From the Sky. The installation will mirror it's title, creating a whimsical, yet apocalyptic, static cinema for the viewer that can be described as a playful meditation on the ironies of our contemporary state of affairs. Drawing from the artists' mutual interest in history, nostalgia, and the un-explainable, the installation will emphasize the boldness of the graphic mark and print-based media. Both artists enjoy exploring various mediums while playing with a vibrant color palette and plan to take this full-throttle into their upcoming show at Good Citizen Gallery.

Gallery Hours Fri., Sat. Noon-5pm and by appointment. Special open hours during the 2011 SGC International Conference March 16-19.

Philip Slein Gallery: Friday, 28 January 2011

Reception: Friday, January 28th, 2011, 6-8 pm
runs through February 25th

Jamie Adams will be showing the latest paintings from his "jeannie" series, a realist grisaille homage to the beautiful and tragic Jean Seberg, star of Godard's cult-film classic, Breathless. In Paris Dream'n Jamie re-frames the Seberg character's Paris apartment as a painting studio and a self-referential site. Jamie himself appears in his paintings as an androgynous child, a younger
version, perhaps, of Jean Seberg the androgynous adult. The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalog with an essay by Daniel McGrath.

Also showing will be Mel Watkin's Trunk Show curated by Dana Turkovic. In an essay written for the exhibition. Hours: Tues.-Sat. 10am-5pm

Outside the Heart
Kay Pick Zivkovich, Media: print & drawings
Reception Sunday afternoon, February 6, 2011, 2­4 p.m.
Exhibit Dates: February 1­26, 2011

Outside the Heart is a repertoire of figurative line drawings and monotypes strongly influenced by artist and colorist Henri Matisse. The figures concentrate on the power and expressive meaning of line. The use of color minimizes the details of the images while creating luminosity. The overall feeling is sensuous and romantic.

Exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.

The Chapel: Saturday, 29 January 2011

Tuan Nguyen: dogleg nexus
Opening reception:
Saturday, January 29, 6-9 PM

THE CHAPEL is pleased to present "dogleg nexus," an exhibition of small works on paper and panel from the past eleven years of Tuan Nguyen’s studio practice. The selected works set up intersections of various narratives or realities, the sources of which range from landscape painting to bicycle shocks.

Several works incorporate sculptural elements created from detritus and discarded materials collected from the artist’s studio. These sculptural elements function in a similar manner to the flat images, evidencing in physical form the accumulation of time, thought, and process.

As a whole, the works operate as abstract configurations of various realities encountered, remembered, or imagined. In doing so, the works speak to a kind of displacement and the awkward--if sometimes funny--convergence of disparate or seemingly unrelated elements, whether personal, historical, or imagined.

The exhibition runs from January 29 - March 12, 2011. Gallery hours by appointment:

THE CHAPEL is a not-for-profit music and art space located in a converted gothic structure behind Memorial Presbyterian Church, across from Forest Park, next to Washington University.

The Migration Back
A Collaborative Exhibition by Dail Chambers & Carl Moore

Opening Reception: January 22, 2011 from 3-5pm
Exhibition January 22, 2011- February 28, 2011

The Great Migration was the movement of over 7 million African Americans out of the Southern United States to the Midwest, Northeast and West. In contemporary culture we find that many African Americans have moved back to the southern states of the U.S. for various reasons. Consistent to that of the generations before us, is the need for better economic, cultural and social environments, which many African Americans have reclaimed in states such as Tennessee, Georgia, and Mississippi. Both artists will explore their experiences, and understanding of this occurrence in our culture.

The migration series is a surreal contemporary look at a migration that has taken place the last 20 years where families and descendants of families that left the south almost half a century ago are returning in search of a better life, identity and history.

SOMETHING HAPPENED Residency Retrospective
and Lauren Frances Adams Installation

Opening reception: Friday, February 4th from 6-9pm
On view February 4, 2011- March 11, 2011
Wednesday-Saturday from 12-6pm

Main Gallery: Something Happened
The Luminary Center for the Arts is pleased to announce our first Resident Artist retrospective exhibition,Something Happened. Something Happened will feature work created by the artists in our artists-in-residence program throughout 2010. The show was formed as a way to create a dialogue between our studio and exhibition programs and further the engagement of the public in the process. Something Happened captures the explorations and experimentations that took place throughout the year, resulting in new work from each of the artists. The artists in the program represent some of the most exciting emerging artists in the region, including Brian Depauli, Meredith Foster, Stephen Hoskins, Sarrita Hunn, Amanda Pfister, Amy Reidel and Carlie Trosclair.

Join us at 6pm on Friday, February 4th for an artist talk by Sarrita Hunn and Friday, March 11th for a closing reception and artist talk with Brian Depauli and Lauren Frances Adams.

Installation Space: Lauren Adams, The Nymph’s Reply
On Friday, February 4th from 6-9pm, Lauren Frances Adams will open The Nymph’s Reply, a painting-based installation that combines Elizabethan decorative tropes and John White’s watercolors of native Algonquin Indians as a vehicle for exploring American post-colonialism. Finding inspiration in Sir Walter Raleigh’s pastoral poem of the same title, the installation is simultaneously visually seductive and chaotic, its aesthetic approachability belying the pedantic critique embedded within the wall paintings. The appropriated references are rendered by hand in the large-scale paintings, creating a surreal juxtaposition of previously disparate elements united by the artist’s process. The result is a barrage of collaged forms confronting the viewer with a dense symbolic field of multiple historical timelines and references, in an attempt to make sense of conflicting colonial narratives.

Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 18 March 2011

Opening Reception
Friday, March 18th from 5-8 p.m
Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10-5pm.

Isaksen’s work has always been inspired by nature: organic forms, cycles, seasons, land, water, sky, order, rhythm, repetition, growth, life, regeneration. “For some time now, I have been using papers as the primary material in my work. The thin papers, which I print on, draw on, cut up, mix, are layered endlessly on the canvas. No “found” papers are used. I print them all, using yarns, fabric, seeds, pressed plants and other organic material. My work is an exploration of complex color schemes and contrasts. I seek ways to bring my work to new levels of my personal interpretation of nature. My work is about color, line, material, form, space and about art as a process that always changes and grows. Where to stop? How far to push? How little? How much? Color is intense. It overpowers me. After working with it for weeks on end, I step back, peel the color away. What is underneath? Something new. Somewhere to grow from again.”

Duane Reed Gallery presents the latest work of artist Therman Statom. Therman Statom is an American Studio Glass artist whose primary medium is sheet glass. Since he appeared at Pilchuck in 1971, he has been known as an innovator. Throughout his career, he has pushed the boundaries of his medium, challenging us to look at glass in new and interesting ways. Statom’s primary medium is sheet glass. He cuts, paints and assembles the glass, adding found objects along the way, to create compelling sculptures. His artistic vocabulary includes simple but powerfully charged forms: houses, ladders, chairs.

jerry MILLER

An unlikely synergy of 3 media...

Jeff Kapfer, Jerry Miller, and Mark Florida combine their talents in "Feather, Leather, Lipstick," PHD Gallery's first show of 2011. Jeff Kapfer paints a new flock of flamboyant fowl like peacocks,
cockatoos , and woodpeckers. Also on view are the hand formed, leather masks of Jerry Miller whose brightly decorated disguises range in style from Commedia dell'arte to Mardi Gras. The final element in the mix is the backstage drag photography of Mark Florida which captures in glorious black and white, the frenzy and transformation backstage as the "gurls" prepare to perform. "Feather, Leather, Lipstick" not only showcases these three artists, but celebrates fantasy, masquerade, and disguise. The exhibition is on view January 22 through March 5, 2011 with a free opening reception on Saturday, January 22 from 7-10PM, Noon to 4PM, Thurs. through Sun.. Costumes are encouraged!

SLU Museum of Art: Friday, 18 February 2011

Tom Huck: Brutal Truths
will open with a reception on Friday, February 18 beginning at 5:30 p.m.
February 18-April 17

Brutal Truths will include more than 45 of Huck's large-scale, intricately complex woodcuts including work from several of his major series including Two Weeks in August: 14 Rural Absurdities; The Bloody Bucket; BLAB!, and The Transformation of Brandy Baghead.

In many of his prints, Huck finds his inspiration in incredibly bizarre, but true occurrences that happened in his boyhood home of Potosi, MO, approximately 80 miles southwest of St. Louis. While the stories are true, Huck uses his printmaking prowess to exaggerate the details and embellish the facts in his woodcuts that allow him to embrace his fervor for storytelling. The Two Weeks in August: 14 Rural Absurdities series took Huck three years to complete. The intricacy of Huck's carving is remarkable, and the range of textures, surfaces and tones he achieves in these blocks are feats of control and mastery.

The emotional energy and spirit of that moment is preserved on the back of the glass. The moments are sporadic and come without warning, but they are moments infused with innocent joy and naive intensity; they resonate within me.

Framations: Friday, 14 January 2011

What better way to get through those winter months than to explore the world through another person's eye - or in this case, their lens. Framations Art Gallery presents their annual juried photography exhibit, Beyond the Lens, now in it's 5th year. Artists from the region have been invited to enter their work for this growing exhibit, to be juried this year by Stacey Morse, the Executive Director of Chesterfield Arts and a professional artist specializing in fine art photography. This exhibit is open to all forms of photography and to regional artists age 18 and older. Awards will be announced at the Opening Reception, which will be held on Friday, January 14 from 6-8pm. The exhibit will run through February 24.

Concurrently, Gallery Two will feature the woven wall hangings of Melissa Whitwam. This exhibit focuses on our experiences of time and how we record them. She relates this in terms of weaving: "Each pass of thread is unique at the moment it is passed, as each life experience is unique as it happens. The accumulation of events creates a piece of fabric in which the individual strand is only a part of the whole. Each pass is different, but the fabric is created with only one thread." Melissa uses hand-embroidery and printing to add visual depth and richness to the beautiful surface textures, many of which are silk

Isolation Room/Gallery Kit: Friday, 14 January 2011

Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson


Opens January 14, 2010 6pm-8pm

Isolation Room/Gallery Kit is pleased to present the video Fireworks by Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson. In 1994, the artists began their partnership while sharing a studio in Manchester, England. Crowe and Rawlinson work across a range of media addressing subjects such as faith, politics, national identity and the environment. Using pairings and oppositions, their video and sculptural works create an encounter with the viewer that focuses on the complexity of objects through actions and reactions with direct reference to their specific social contexts. A captivating video, Fireworks functions as a metaphor for the disentanglement of the social and ideological consequences of an action in relation to its evident spectacle. Installed in a large cavernous space, a series of fireworks are laid out in an ambitious construction, timed explosions are set off in a continuous and fascinating display, from spastic sparks to flickering flames, smoke eventually permeates the room and shifts our experience accordingly.

Robin Assner and Sarah Nitschke: Dismantling Evil
Opening Reception Friday, January 21, 6-10m
Good Citizen Gallery January 21­- February 26, 2011

The roots of this work stem from a long-term, multi-disciplinary, series based project titled Acts of Hope and Futility - the collaborators have been working on this series since 2004.

The body of work in Dismantling Evil is an examination of evil from a humanistic perspective. In particular Assner and Nitschke are interested in evil as an intrinsic part of the human psyche and experience; how it is often normally good natured, average people who commit evil. This work challenges each individual to examine their own views and personal responsibility - as complicit bystanders and accessories after the fact - to the rampant global ills that continue to haunt us. Through extensive research and study, the artists have created work which begin to dismantle the complexities of western ideas about evil, challenging conventional perceptions, notions, and assumptions of what is, and who is, evil. In doing so, Assner and Nitschke hope to break down the highly evocative subject of evil; deflating its power and revealing small actions that can begin to disrupt its perpetuation, on both an individual and a community level.

Mesa Cycles: Saturday, 15 January 2011


On Saturday January 15th, Mesa Cycles, located at 1035 S. Big Bend, will host a cycling photography exhibition featuring work by Matt James, Ellen Ludwig, Chris Ludwig and Dennis Fickenger. The exhibit will feature printed works and presentations documenting bicycle racing and its unique culture. The artists will be in attendance for this very limited engagement from 6 to 10 pm Saturday January 15th. Mesa Cycles and Northwest Coffee will provide the evening’s refreshment.

The exhibit is focused on regional bicycle racing and culture featuring several Midwest cycling teams and racers from St. Louis, Kansas City and Columbia. Most work will be available for sale. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Mesa Cycles Bike Shop will be transformed into a gallery space for one night to display the cycling photography exhibit. The exhibition is open to the public FREE OF CHARGE.

Nu-Art Series: Friday, 14 January 2011

The Nu-Art Series is proud to present "ART LAB: Work in Progress" featuring artists Bunny Burson, Yosafa Deutsch, Asma Kazmi, Ron Laboray, Alex Lopez, Jerry Monteith, Chinyere E. Oteh, Thomas Sleet, and Mel Watkin on Friday, January 14, 2011, from 6 to 9 p.m. at The Nu-Art Series' Metropolitan Gallery.

The artists in this exhibition were asked to create a site-specific piece concerning their working process. What would a visitor see if they walk into your studio just as you step out? What work is in-progress? What is on the walls? What is on your computer screen? What are you researching? What are your references? What muNusic is playing? Will they hear the sound of an ink jet printer? A clicking keyboard? Is there tea brewing? Is there a smell of saw dust? Oil paint
? Do you want your process to be clear or remain obscure? Is it obvious or would a visitor have to puzzle it out?

Gallery hours are Wednesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday by appointment only.

PSTL Gallery: Friday, 21 January 2011

PSTL Gallery is excited to present the work of Ryan Thayer. The exhibition opens Friday, January 21 with an opening that evening from 6–9pm. The exhibition will run through March 25.

Timemachines is a series of photographs exploring contemporary concepts of the future. These
photographs focus on a group of devices that take pictures and also display them. By directly exposing the screens of these cameras onto photographic paper a digital image is recorded as a unique photogram. These photograms combine the past with the present and the future by presenting a historical record of objects we consider to be futuristic, an archive of our past futures and an image of what the future looks like at this moment. An iPod is considered futuristic but it can only play recordings from the past. Laptops stream news “live” and iPhones provide instant video conferencing in FaceTime but here the present has been replaced with the concept of ʻreal timeʼ, a perpetually delayed experience of events. These devices are time machines and the future they propose displaces the present they are designed to enhance making us ever more connected to the past. In this series of photographs cameras are witnesses to their own obsolescence.
