Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 1 April 2011

Duane Reed Gallery presents the latest work of Jane Birdsall-Lander. Exhibition opens
Friday, April 1st with a reception that evening 5–8pm. The exhibition will run through May 7th.

In her recent sculptural wall pieces Jane Birdsall-Lander reconfigures found objects and then binds them together with pigment stained waxed linen thread to build a group of primal alphabet forms. Made from cast offs such as salvage wooden canes. Conceptually the sculptures are inspired by the artist’s interest in the evolution of pictographs and ideographs into the modern alphabet as well as her desire to incorporate recycled artifacts into the sculptures.

Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10-5pm.

Bonsack Gallery: Friday, 8 April 2011

There will be an exhibition of TomFriedman’s work in the John Burroughs School’s Bonsack Gallery from April 8 through April 13.

The artist will host a public opening reception from 5:00 to 7:00 pm on April 8. The exhibition will be curated by Jim Probstein ’83, William Shearburn ’79 and current parent John Van Doren.

The show will remain open to the public, through April 13, during the following hours: Saturday, April 9 – Noon to 3 pm; Sunday, April 10 – Noon to 3 pm; Monday, April 11– 8 am to 6:30 pm; Tuesday, April 12 – 8 am to 6:30 pm; Wednesday, April 13 – 8 am to 6:30 pm.

Friedman is an American conceptual artist who creates intricate and playful works of art from common household materials, such as Styrofoam, masking tape, pencils, toilet paper, toothpicks, spaghetti and bubble gum. His work, obsessively and painstakingly crafted, connects to 1960s Conceptualism and Minimalism, but transcends these historical precedents with a unique visual language that elevates the ordinary to the status of art. By investigating the relationship between the everyday and the art experience, Friedman's art offers indispensable insights into new ways in which to view the world.

Max Lazarus: Trier / St. Louis / Denver – A Jewish Artist's Fate
February 18 – May 7, 2011

Organized by the Stadtmuseum Simeonstift, Trier, Germany, this exhibition traces the life and artistic development of the German-Jewish artist Max Lazarus (1892-1961) through over 50 paintings, lithographs and synagogue designs. An extraordinary colorist, Lazarus produced expressive works that included landscapes, portraits, and some politically charged subjects. Lazarus fled Germany in 1938, after being forced to work secretly in Germany during the rise of the Nazi party. He lived first in St. Louis, where he had a family, then moved to Denver, Colorado, where he contracted tuberculosis.

His early career is represented in the exhibition with a self-portrait, several Trier landscapes, and a number of prints. Scenes from his time in St. Louis, like views of the Old Courthouse, Grand Avenue and the United Hebrew Synagogue (now the Missouri History Museum Library and Research Center), as well as paintings that reflect the changing Denver cityscape in the 1940s and 50s, are also included. Lazarus's story stands as an example of innumerable "disrupted biographies" that occurred during the rise of the Nazis to power. Lazarus’s life and career were disrupted twice: first by the Nazis and then by his health. He died in Denver, Colorado in 1961. A selection of Lazarus's synagogue mural designs will be on view during this time in a separate exhibition in the Bernoudy Gallery of Architecture.

The exhibition is underwritten by the David S. Millstone Arts Foundation with additional support from Nancy and Kenneth Kranzberg, The Millstone Foundation, Gary and Sherry Wolff, Esley Hamilton and Angela M. Gonzales.

Gallery Talk: April 12, 6 p.m., Dan Reich, Curator and Director of Education at the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center In Memory of Gloria M.Goldstein, will speak on Max Lazarus's career as an artist in exile. Bellwether Gallery, admission free.

Related Program: April 5, 7 p.m., St. Louis Holocaust Émigrés Panel. Please note: this program will be held at the Holocaust Museum and Learning Center In Memory of Gloria M. Goldstein, 12 Millstone Campus Drive, St. Louis, Missouri, 63146. Telephone 314.442.3714.

Larry Fink: Attraction and Desire – 50 Years in Photography
February 18 – May 21, 2011

This exhibition provides an overview of work by the internationally renowned photographer Larry Fink, and includes photographs spanning his 50+ year career. Works from the series The Beatniks, Social Graces, Boxing, Somewhere There's Music, Runway and The Democrats, as well as intimate photographs of his home, family and travels are included. Born in Brooklyn, New York in 1941, Larry Fink studied with Lisette Model and Alexei Brodovich. In the mid-1970s, Fink began photographing at museum galas, art openings and other events, employing a signature lighting style that heightened the human and psychological drama of the moment. In 1980, he moved to rural Martin's Creek, Pennsylvania where country events, his neighbors and his family were his subjects.

Fink has had one-man shows at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of Art, the Musée de la Photographie in Charleroi, Belgium, and the Musee de l'Elysée in Lausanne, Switzerland, among others. In addition to two John Simon Guggenheim Fellowships in 1976 and 1979, and two National Endowment for the Arts, Individual Photography Fellowships in 1978 and 1986, Fink was awarded an honorary doctorate from the College for Creative Studies, College of Art and Design, Detroit in 2002. His photographic work is also the focus of several monographs, including Social Graces (1984 and 2001); Boxing (1997); Runway (2000); Larry Fink (2005); Somewhere There's Music (2006) and forthcoming, The Vanities: Hollywood Parties from 2000 to 2009 (2011). He is also an influential educator, and has taught at the Yale University School of Art, New Haven and Cooper Union School of Art and Architecture, New York, among other universities. He is currently Professor of Photography at Bard College in New York. A catalogue accompanies the exhibition. The exhibition is organized by the Sheldon Art Galleries, St. Louis.

The exhibition is underwritten by Luxco, with additional support from Barbara and Arthur McDonnell and Ellen and Durb Curlee.

Gallery Talk: Saturday, February 19, 11 a.m., Larry Fink will speak on his career in photography, Gallery of Photography, admission free.

Max Lazarus: The Synagogue Murals
February 18 – May 7, 2011

Drawn from the travelling exhibition Max Lazarus: Trier / St. Louis / Denver – A Jewish Artist's Fate on view in the Bellwether Gallery, this exhibition focuses on a series of beautiful gouache paintings of synagogue mural designs that Lazarus completed between 1921 and 1931. His first commission, which was for the Merzig Synagogue in 1921-22, was a success, and several more followed, including ones in Homburg (1922-23), Langen (1926), Herford (1926), Lübbecke (1928), Neumagen (1928) and Herford (1931), all of which were destroyed by the Nazis during November 1938 Pogroms, also called Kristallnacht (the Night of Broken Glass). Designs for other Synagogues that were never realized will also be on view. Lazarus is now considered one of the most important synagogue painters in Western Germany. His work in this area remained forgotten for many years because the synagogues had been destroyed, and it is only now, as a result of the Trier exhibition, that his importance in this area as a synagogue painter is able to be studied and reconsidered. The exhibition is organized by , Trier, Germany.

Craft Alliance in the Loop: Friday, 18 March 2011

Exhibition challenges conventional views on embroidery
March 18 – May 8
FREE Opening Reception on Friday, March 18, 6-8pm

Craft Alliance is pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition Storylines: Contemporary Embroidery. The exhibition, features work from Michael Aaron McAllister, Diem Chau, Ray Materson, Chris Niver, Deborah Slabeck Baker, and Cayce Zavaglia.

In this exhibition, six contemporary artists push the boundaries of the traditional art form of embroidery. Stitch by stitch, each artist depicts a story through exploring the potential of this time-honored technique. The artists featured were selected because their works challenge conventional ideas about embroidery and explore its potential to communicate their ideas.

McAllister portrays the personalities of historical figures through elaborate stitches and embellishments. Some of these legendary people include William Shakespeare, Teddy Roosevelt, and Emily Dickinson. Materson found inspiration in a pair of socks while in prison. Salvaging the thread from those socks, he created miniature tapestries depicting life outside prison walls. Dedicating forty to sixty hours to each piece, Materson creates intricate, mind-blowing, miniature embroideries with an average of 1,200 stitches per a square inch. In a unique combination, Chau stitches her stories on hard surfaces like coffee cups and plates. Her work reveals forgotten moments in time using familiar objects in unfamiliar ways. She creates delicate vignettes of fleeting memories, gestures and forms. Using only black thread, Niver carefully “draws” individual characters in isolated situations. The ominous figures produce a variety of emotions including fear, loneliness, and vulnerability. His dark inspiration comes from the scrimshaw work of 19th century sailors which chronicled the hardships and gravity of life. As another artist utilizing black thread on fabric, Baker communicates her stories and ideas through small drawings on natural linen. Her narratives are stitched directly onto the fabric in a freehand style. Through techniques found in drawing and painting, Zavaglia transforms her embroidery into realistic snapshots of humanity.

Opening concurrently at the Charak Gallery is the exhibition, Lets Talk About Love Baby, featuring romance novels created by various artists around the world. The concept is to compile individual ideas of what “love” symbolizes.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Thursday, 10am – 5pm; Friday and Saturday, 10am – 6 pm, Sunday, 11am – 5pm. Closed Monday

Bruno David Gallery: Friday, 11 February 2011

You are invited to the opening reception (v2) of This City, Daily Rising, a solo exhibition of new work by the Shanghai-based artist Christina Shmigel, on Friday, February 11, 5-9pm. The exhibition is now fully installed (view it online) and we hope to see you Friday night.

Christina Shmigel’s first solo US exhibition since 2005, is composed of three interrelated installations. Continually shifting between macro- and microcosmic views, the installations are emblematic of Shmigel’s play with scale and size, intimacy and monumentality, and create for the viewer something of the vibrancy & intensity of Shanghai (China), the city where she now lives and works. There is much in this exhibition that springs from the local knowledge of Shanghai but also much that speaks to more universal themes. How do we decipher and interpret experience, making meaning amidst that which is foreign to us? How do we come to know the world thru association and memory and projection? And, most importantly, the question that has always been central to Shmigel’s work, how do the inanimate things that we build and that we surround ourselves with, reveal the nature of our humanity? See an article on The Wall Street Journal by Lisa Movius on her upcoming exhibition (here).

Showing at the gallery:
Shawn Burkard: ORANGES/MEGALITHIC (Front Room)
Eleanor Dubinsky: Touch the Sky (Media Room)

The gallery is open free to the public and the hours are 10 AM to 5 PM Wednesdays through Saturdays, and by appointment.

Call for Entry: Those Who Dream by Night New exhibit focuses on abstract and fantasy themes

Framations Art Gallery presents an opportunity for artists to explore the themes of fantasy, dreams, and all things abstract with upcoming exhibit. "Those Who Dream by Night", will be open to artists' interpretation, allowing artists to determine their individual subject matter in any wall hung media. T.E. Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia, once said, "All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." This idea that what we dream while asleep is often much different from what are waking dreams for ourself include eludes to the idea that some dreams are out of our control, and some we also take more seriously than others.

"Those Who Dream by Night" will be a juried exhibit, from walk-in entries due to the gallery March 5 & 6. The juror for this exhibit is Brian Smith, Professor of Visual Art as well as the Visual Art Program Coordinator at St. Charles Community College. His expeience extends to working as an art lecturor and juror. There will be an Awards Reception open to the public on Friday, March 11 from 6-8 pm with awards announced at 7 pm.

Join us this month for the opening of our new exhibition, Dreamscapes, and for the beginning of the Dreamscapes Concert Series.

Dreamscapes: February 11 - August 13, 2011

Dreamscapes on Friday, February 11, 5-9pm. Admission is free. Refreshments will be served.

Dreamscapes incites questions about the act of dreaming–a succession of thoughts, images, sounds or emotions that the mind experiences during sleep. The artworks on view and their juxtaposition with Tadao Ando's architecture offer new ways to think about the content and purpose of dreams on numerous levels: physiological, psychological, cultural and spiritual.

The thirty-five works in this exhibition reflect a wide range of dreamlike settings or scenarios. Included are paintings by René Magritte, Joan Miró, Max Ernst and Philip Guston, along with contemporary works by Katharina Fritsch, Do Ho Suh, Kiki Smith, Janet Cardiff and others.

Throughout the exhibition, we will offer a series of special programs every Saturday at 1pm. On Saturday, February 12, senior curator Francesca Herndon-Consagra will lead a tour of Dreamscapes.
