Stephen Mallon:
Reframing the Machine

2 - 30 March 2012

with a talk by Mr. Mallon on Friday, 2 March, at 1 pm in Sverdrup 101 (note new time)
including a screening of his award-winning short, A Bridge Delivered

Re-framing the Machine follows Stephen Mallon's winding journey of searching out his industrial landscapes. From out-takes to the decisive and violent recycling of New York City, Mallon's selects of the past decade's picture hunting are here to see.

One of the exhibition's featured projects is images of subway cars being dumped into the Atlantic. More than 2,500 of New York's decommissioned subway cars are laid to rest on the eternal seabed. Gutted and windowless, the hardest workers in the mobile world fall down to the new base, where they now forever serve another population. Mallon's photographs elicit both the sadness and the beauty of cascading water overtaking these iconic figures of New York transit as they sink beneath the surface of the water; surges and sprays are caught in time.

Another image in the exhibition is the only passenger jet aircraft to ditch in water with zero fatalities. Time moves and memories fade. Three years have passed, and it can be difficult to recall the moment for one heard the news of a passenger jet landing in a river in New York. The feelings of shock, awe, disbelief, and amazement come rushing back when seeing an airplane emerging from the icy water.

Most recently, Mallon spent six months producing a short film about the transport and installation of the new Willis Street Bridge. Produced from more than 30,000 still images, the time lapse film, "A Bridge Delivered," was reviewed by the Wall Street Journal, New York Magazine, GQ, PDN and Wired. "A Bridge Delivered" will be shown at Mr. Mallon's afternoon talk and during the opening reception.

The Nu-Art Series proudly presents Oliver Lake and S. Scott Davis III with an opening reception on Friday, March 16, 2012, from 5:30 to 9 p.m., as part of our ongoing Jazz and the Visual Arts Series. The show continues through April 20, 2012.

I pick up the brush because it relaxes me, it's part of my meditation.

I work with oil and acrylic paint, pencil, collage - often mixing media. I like to work with vibrant colors exploding against one another. I am a painter, usually on two-dimensional surfaces such as paper and canvas, but at times I find myself painting on three-dimensional found objects, and these paintings become sculpture. Over the years I have continued to create Talkin' Sticks - found natural sticks painted and decorated to tell a story, break a spell, power a dream. If there are themes in the work, they come from a long collaboration with my African, Choctaw and American roots, exploring and expressing who I am, and how I see the world. -- Oliver Lake

Good Citizen Gallery: Saturday, 25 February 2012

Good Citizen invites you to the Closing Reception and Catalog Release for The Indeterminate Length, an expansive sculptural installation and billboard project by Mike Calway-Fagen,
Saturday February 25, 6-10 PM.

For The Indeterminate Length, Mike Calway-Fagen has incorporated a shifting sculptural installation with photography to explore the nature of time experienced and actual: the incomprehensible indefiniteness of change. Discarded bits of furniture, chairs, tables, shelves, stools, bricks, rocks, and other provocative objects pulled from alleys and lots around St. Louis have been stacked, arranged, and re-arranged atop a similarly collected carpeting. Further exploring the sense of time, Calway-Fagen has designed the show cards for the exhibition as a small work of art. Visitors are encouraged to take away the card and see it as something fleeting but specific, freezing a moment in time but maintaining a sense of preciousness. Catalog featuring essays by Rujeko Hockley, Ivy Cooper, and Itza Vilaboy.

Mad Art Gallery: Friday, 2 March 2012


At Mad Art Gallery on March 2, 2012 from 7pm-11pm-Renaissance II: Revolution of the Mind will be the second installment of the Renaissance series.

Renaissance I: Rebirth of the Soul was a celebration of that spark of creativity that inspires artists, bringing them a wave of inspiration that allows them to create something new. Renaissance II: Revolution of the Mind is about that next level of the artist's evolution as they push themselves beyond their artistic boundaries to create something new. Something that reinvents the way people perceive their own personal and collective realities- something the world has never seen before.

The show is an exploration of the creative inspiration and spark that allows artists to continue pushing onward, beyond the limitations of each individual’s artistic field sets. It is a celebration of the breaking down of those boundaries between the infinite visionary worlds, within the artist's mind, and the realities that we are able to create in the wider world around us.

Pulitzer Foundation: Thursday, 5 April 2012


The opening public reception is on April 5 from 5 – 9 PM.

In celebration of its 10th-anniversary year, The Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts presents the exhibition In the Still Epiphany, on view from April 5 to October 27, 2012. Artist Gedi Sibony is creating a large-scale, temporary work of art comprised of approximately forty objects from the collection of Emily and Joseph Pulitzer, Jr.­including works by John Singer Sargent, Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Paul Klee, Lucia Moholy, and Lucio Fontana.

Sibony is arranging these predominately figurative works within the spaces of Tadao Ando’s building to create a flow of experience that is involving, meditative, and surprising. Modern and contemporary European and American paintings, sculptures, and works on paper­many of them chosen for their depiction of domestic interiors and the figures that inhabit them­are combined with African, Asian, and Pre-Columbian ritual and decorative objects. These groupings resonate within the galleries of the Pulitzer building to impart a distinct character to each space and to offer the visitor a journey through the activity of life as depicted in the frozen moments captured by the works themselves.

In the Still Epiphany unfolds in stages, beginning in the small space of the Pulitzer’s Entrance Gallery, which functions like a crowded foyer with a high density of portraits and busts including Vuillard’s Self Portrait (1892) and Auguste Rodin’s Bust of Joseph Pulitzer (1907). Then Picasso’s The Fireplace (1916-17) draws the visitor into the large Main Gallery, where different types of conversations between the works take place. Objects arranged as a mise-en-scène, includes Chinese terracotta vessels from the 6th century CE, an Alberto Giacometti sculpture, and a group of Pre-Columbian objects including tribal pots and a headdress ornament made of copper and gold. Nearby are Bonnard’s vibrant, almost electric, painting Still Life with Ham (1940), as well as Matisse’s The Conservatory (1938) and Vuillard’s Woman in Green (1909), both of which depict reclining women lost in thought.

A narrow passageway leads into the Cube Gallery, where Fontana’s painting Black Landscape (1966), acts as night-sky theater box in front of which an armature holding two ancient sculptures­a terracotta from Pakistan entitled Figurine of Mother-Goddess (c. 3000-2500 BCE) and a standing figure made of stone from Africa (c. 4500-7000 BCE)­serve as a formulation of the mystery of life.

Bruno David Gallery: Friday, 9 March 2012

Opening Reception Friday, March 9, 2012, from 5 to 8 pm
March 9 – May 5, 2012

Front Room: Buzz Spector: Malevich: with eight red rectangles
Project Room: Katharine Kuharic: Working in the Lou
Media Room: Van McElwee: Supernatural

Public Hours: Wednesday through Saturday 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

Bruno David Gallery is pleased to present a new exhibition, “Recent Paintings,” by Chris Kahler. Carmine Iannaccone writes of Kahler’s work that “it unhinges the function of representation, loosens the joints of correspondence, makes the presumed determinacy of representation indeterminate.” Kahler’s paintings are this but they are simultaneously that. Iannaccone goes on to note: “Kahler’s style of abstraction loosens the laws that govern representation, it puts another question into play: what kind of meaning does this species of vision produce?” The meaning, like the work itself, is multi-layered, and invites viewers to connect their own histories with the experience of looking. A fully illustrated catalogue, with an essay by Carmine Iannaccone, accompanies the exhibit.

"Kahler's paintings are very much about physical process, but they are also about the processes by which images come into being. They activate the mental mechanisms that search for analogies between what we're looking at and what we've seen elsewhere, between what we're seeing on the canvas, and what we know about the world. To look at one of these paintings is to engage in just such a searching, a feeling around for meaning, as though the painting were a transparent screen which we hold up to the things around us and look for matches, places where the image lines up with reality or with multiple realities." Kahler asks us construct meaning out of what we already know in conjunction with the work that is in front of us. In our search for meaning, Kahler pulls us further into his work, immersing us completely in the abstract environment he has created. These abstract environments become representational of a world—our world—and it is this play between abstract and representation that makes Kahler’s work so successful.

In the Front Room, the gallery presents Buzz Spector’s groundbreaking 1992 installation, Malevich: with eight red rectangles.

In the Project Room, the gallery presents an exhibition, titled “Working in the Lou” by Katharine Kuharic. Kuharic’s work is, in a word, alive. Birthed from “unsolicited images,” Kuharic manipulates and reconfigures images that our culture has been desensitized to, shocking the viewer and asking the audience to reconsider what they think they know. Taking stock pictures from junk mail, newspapers, magazines and other sources, Kuharic meticulously paints images to create reconfigured histories. Her works highlight investigations into American celebrity, pop and suburban culture, and personal identity politics. A fully illustrated catalogue with an essay by Kara Gordon accompanies the exhibit.

In the Media Room, the gallery presents a video work titled “Supernatural” by Van McElwee. Just shy of six minutes, this single-channel video is waves of variation that reveal the contours of impossible form. It is as if the process of decay were reversed, causing delicate structures to emerge from the grain of chaos.

Archie Granot: The Papercut Haggadah
Free public opening reception Sunday, February 26, 2 to 4 pm. Exhibition continues through May 20

“Haggadah” signifies a book that contains the ritual guide to the Passover Seder, along with scripture passages, commentary, prayers and songs. In each generation artists continue the tradition of reinterpreting these texts for contemporary believers. Israeli artist Archie Granot was commissioned to present the Haggadah in the traditional medium of papercutting. The resulting 55 pages employ intricate geometric and abstract shapes and calligraphic text to create an exquisite, unique version of the Haggadah.

Regular museum hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free, though there is a suggested donation of $5, or $1 for students and children.

Opening Reception and Wine Tasting
Two new exhibits feature watercolor group and Contemporary Acrylics.

Framations Art Gallery invites the public to join them for two new exhibits and to sample new wines from their wine sponsor, bakkheia at an Opening Reception on February 24 from 6-8pm.

In the Main Gallery, visitors will find "Joy of Painting", a group of watercolorists brought together by an instructor, Jean McMuller. The group started out as “students” but through time and their interest in painting, have become friends. The students work range from beginners to advanced. A total of two dozen artists will share the space, just as they have shared the learning experience.

In Gallery Two, the exhibit "Beyond Imagination: The Contemporary Artwork of Jessica Dreyer" will invite the viewer in to explore the abstract designs invented by Dreyer. In her Acrylic Abstracts, Dreyer often uses heavily textured and layered compositions. Her use of repetition, movement, and contrast inspire abstract designs that invite the viewer to both explore the textures close up and to step back and get the full impact of the piece.

"Horseshoe Lake 3", 2011 by Matthew O'Shea
Barclay Hughes and Matthew O’Shea share a working method and a theme in their new photographic works. Both are photographers, fully embracing mainstream technologies to mold photographic information to their unique visual vocabularies. Freed from the constraints of chemical based photography, Hughes and O’Shea’s work take the digital information of their images into their own hands. Both artists stitch, shape, rearrange, scale and blend what is normally thought of as “truthful” photographic imagery of the real world into imagined scenes that reflect more specific and personal narratives. The themes of dislocation and disconnection are the shared stories in Hughes and O’Shea’s work. Made more “real” by being photographic, both artists’ work depicts moments of transient isolation in plaintively beautiful locations. Although the two artists, theme is similar, their works look very different, highlighting the individual visual language each has invented.

“Where Are You Now?” is the product of two St. Louis artists collaborating in the brave, new world of fine art digital photography. By leaving behind the sentimental attachments of film emulsion and silver halide chemistry, Hughes and O’Shea demonstrate the power of new technologies to birth new forms of expression.

This exhibition in collaboration with Schmidt Contemporary Art.

Marcis Curtis
“I draw the epiphanies my mind creates in an effort to bring them more clarity and resonance. The spaces I create are thought-experiments of cultural norms and currents, interacting with the omnipresent force of nature. I enjoy the absurd, the irrational, and the intuitive, while trying to maintain a grounded, skeptical perspective.”

Evan Michael
Evan Michael Honerkamp spent his adolescence surrounded by mentally, physically, and socially handicapped individuals, with whom interactions have led to key insights into innumerable worlds of obsession, idiosyncratic communication, and vivid sensation. Continuing these relationships has melded his artwork into the fantastical and stylized forms of current. Earning additional certification in art therapy, he has begun extending his creative practice to benefit the autistic community before broadening to include the incarcerated population and victims of trauma and addiction.

Tom Cline
Tom’s prints explore the idea of human burdens, represented by depictions of heavily-layered, amorphous forms. Drawn from his own experiences, these forms become stand-ins for the feeling of being borne down under the weight of responsibility. Though massive, these weights are supported tenaciously by representations of the frail, yet unfailing, body. The prints resonate with the shared experience of all humanity’s burdens, and the continuous struggle against them

Craft Alliance in the Delmar Loop: Friday, 9 March 2012

March 9, 2012 – April 26, 2012

FREE Opening Reception on Friday, March 9, 2012, 6 – 8pm
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Thursday 10am – 5pm / Friday – Saturday 10am – 6 pm / Sunday 11am – 5pm

The opening reception is on Friday, March 9, 2012, from 6 – 8pm in CA’s gallery in the Delmar Loop. Throughout the world, the drinking of tea is an integral part of the social fabric, from the everyday sharing of tea amongst friends to the traditional tea ceremony in Japan. The common thread linking all of these tea-time traditions is the dynamic of sharing; for this exhibition, artists from all media (clay, fiber, glass, metal and wood) share their appreciation and interpretation of the teapot with CA.

Yet again, the roster of participating artists is an impressive one; this year’s exhibit includes fifty artists, twenty of whom are local or regional. CA is proud to announce Richard Notkin as one of the featured artists. His work is influenced by the tradition of Yixing pottery. Kevin Snipes uses skillfully designed vessels and quirky figures as vehicles for storytelling. Other well-known clay artists, such as Joe Bova, Sam Chung, Eric Serritella, and Blair Meerfield, add their unique perspectives to the show.

We will also present the glass and metal work of Robert Ebendorf. Jo Stealey will display her teapots created out of leaves and paper, while Ed Bing Lee showcases his intricately knotted pieces. To complement CA’s increasing interest in wood, this year’s exhibition features more wooden teapots than in previous shows. Woodturners John Jordan and Dixie Biggs will both feature their work, as well as internationally known pioneer woodturner David Ellsworth, to name a few.

From March 9 - April 1, 2012, a High School Teapot exhibition is featured concurrently in the David & Jacqueline Charak gallery. The 14 participating schools include Chaminade College Prep, Crossroads College Preparatory School, Hazelwood Central High School, John Burroughs School, Kirkwood High School, Ladue Horton Watkins High School, cCluer High School, MICDS, St. Louis University High School, Villa Duchesne, Webster Groves High School, Whitfield School, McCluer North, Parkway West High School.

Craft Alliance in the Kranzberg Arts Center: Friday, 10 February 2012

Friday, February 10, 2012, 6-8pm

The exhibition, which runs through April 8, explores the art of contemporary furniture design. The works of Kimberly Winkle, Brian Ferrell, and Matt Keim feature abstract forms, colorful surfaces, and combined materials while maintaining their functionality as interior objects.

An element of play is evident in the subtly colored furniture designs of Kimberly Winkle. Hand drawn patterns in graphite and paint complement her gently rounded and smooth wooden forms. Kimberly transitions from complex swirls of lines and dots to the simplicity of bare wood in order to highlight the natural beauty of woods such as cherry or mahogany, while enhancing the surface quality of poplar with her mark making.

Brian Ferrell emphasizes clean lines and tapered angles to create compositions in wood and metal. His sculptures employ a repetition of shape and line to guide the viewer’s eye in and around an interplay of domestic and exotic woods such as paduak and walnut, steel cables, and pewter surfaces.

My art is concerned with multiple subjects, but only two primary themes. The first is that of ideas, before any word of description or physical action to make tangible has been attached to it. The second is memory: how we often unconsciously distort and fill in our personal history to bridge gaps and try to reconcile a peace or continuum within us. I try to place this all in the contemporary context of our frenetically paced society - the age of the internet.

Duane Reed Gallery: Friday, 6 April 2012

Duane Reed Gallery presents the latest work of Grif Williams. Exhibition opens Friday, April 6th with a reception that evening 5 – 8 pm. The exhibition will run through May 12th.

Duane Reed Gallery presents the latest work of Jan Huling. Exhibition opens Friday, April 6th with a reception that evening 5 – 8pm. The exhibition will run through May 12th.

Grif Williams’ methodology involves an elaborate paint by number process he reinvented. Each segmented area of the composition is assigned to a specific color, a palette professionally mixed to replicate the distinctive colors in a 1950’s Color Craft paint by numbers set. The hand-made application involves repeated layers of poured transparent resin and stenciled enamel shapes. Intially, this meticulous process is belied by the graphic flatness and slick surfaces of the work, which may seem manufactured or digital.

Neither sketched nor planned, Huling‘s three-dimensional works draw inspiration from her travels to India and Mexico, as well as imagined, playful scenes reminiscent of childhood fairy tales and fantasies. Her work is approachable yet evocative, incorporating spiritual iconography alongside humorous artifacts of contemporary popular culture.

Gallery hours: Tuesday through Saturday 10-5 pm.

SLU Museum of Art: Friday,10 February 2012

Friday, Feb. 10; 5 - 7 p.m.

Drawn from the Saint Louis University Museum of Art's permanent print collection, the exhibition examines dissent expressed by artists of various periods and cultural backgrounds. Selected artworks include prints by Francisco Goya, Roberto Matta, Richard Hamilton, Ed Paschke and other artists who deal with strife through art.

Using the common marker of visual art, each artist offers his or her own perspective of dissent; some are subtle, while others are more obvious, and range from simple discord, to indifference, to rebellion. Paschke takes iconic figures and recasts them to dismantle the glamorous façade of America, and instead, highlights the trappings of fame, money, and power. Though Francisco Goya and Richard Hamilton are separated by language, culture, and time, they share an artistic commentary on the violence that comes from tumultuous social and political climates. Roberto Matta expresses the human struggle with modern machinery. He uses vibrant color and even clay in his paintings to add dimension and emphasize distortions that help to convey his artistic commentary.
